This paper conducts a study of the influence of bank mergers on the financial performance of the merged banks, using the takeover of Halifax Bank of Scotland (HBOS) by Lloyds TSB in September 2008 as an example. In spite of certain limitations, accounting ratios are still convenient and reliable analytical tool in all financial decision-making processes. The results show that the financial performance of Lloyds TSB in the areas of profitability after merger is not improved significantly. This result is inconsistent with previous studies that bank M&A results in improved profitability. However, it would be incorrect to say that M&A activities are completely negative (or positive) to banks.
