The effect of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) on different stakeholders is dependent on a number of factors. These factors can include but are not limited to: the type of M&A; each firm's reasons for the M&A; the offer amount; the product market of both the acquirer and target firms; the political environment; the economic environment; and the current situation of each firm. Employees play a significant role in businesses in which employee satisfaction affects the quality and quantity of business output. Firms interested in embarking on cross-border mergers have new employees to manage and must determine an appropriate wage to match the level of productivity of target employees. Wages may need to be altered as a result of employee relocation; employee compensation can be a complex matter, as the cost of living in each area varies greatly.
