Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to provide an updated review of what is known about the performance of technology-based mergers and acquisitions (TBM&As) and their determinants. This review brings together papers published from 1990 to 2012 in top-rated academic journals within nearly all fields of business, thus providing a comprehensive assessment of TBM&A research. The review follows a systematic approach using selected elements from the review methodology. We identified and examined the following: research questions, research designs, research contexts, data and methods, performance measures, and empirical findings about performance and the impacting factors. Through this, a comprehensive knowledge has been gained about TBM&As and have discovered where more effort is needed.
