Abstract: The frequency and scale of cross-border and domestic mergers and acquisitions have significantly increased during the past two decades in spite of continuous reports on their high failure rates (e.g., Cartwright and Cooper, 1996, 2000; Gomes, Weber, Brown, and Tarba, 2011; Junni, Sarala, Tarba, and Weber, 2015; Zhang, Ahammad, Tarba, Cooper, Glaister, and Wang, 2015). Surprisingly, research studies conducted in different research streams (business strategy, finance, accounting, organizational behavior, and human resource management) have generally failed to step into each other’s turf, hence missing the opportunities for cross-fertilization (Weber and Tarba, 2010; Weber, Tarba, and Reichel, 2009).
