Mergers & Acquisitions There has been in recent months a renewed interest in mergers and acquisitions in the banking sector in view of the growing openness of the Indian financial system. Mergers of banks took place in India in the 1960s under the direction of the Reserve Bank of India. The undercurrent of thinking is that the larger the bank the higher its competitiveness and better its prospects of survival. But the decisions about mergers would require that a view be taken of the optimal number of banks in the country in the context of the opening up of the financial sector for foreign banks to acquire. and amalgamate with banks in the foreign bank category as well as with Indian banks. But after the introduction of economic reforms by the government. let us have a bit of contemporary history of mergers in India. The focal point of interest is about the size of the banking firm. From 566 reporting commercial banks (of which non-scheduled banks were 474) at the end of 1951. Many banks like HDFC. As per an estimate. SBI and ICICI has put the housing finance on their priority list. This argument implies that Indian banks are not in a position to compete for business internationally — in terms of funds mobilization.

Which could heightened to the 20%. the number came down to 292 (of which 210 were non-scheduled) at end 1961. and to 85 (14 non-scheduled) by the end of 1969.

there were private banks mergers since about the late 1990s for diverse reasons including building up financial strength. undertaken for preserving banking stability. There were also mergers of private banks with public sector banks. Much of the general literature on mergers in banking relates to private banking. capturing larger portion of the growing retail business and securing better regional presence. the institutions were strengthened financially. Mergers of ICICI Bank and Bank of Madura. The 1960 episode was essentially an exercise for preserving banking stability. more recently. public sector bank mergers were not contemplated. problems of personnel integration cropped up. On the other hand. The branch offices of scheduled commercial banks increased over this period while those of non-scheduled commercial banks declined. the prominent among them being the mergers of Benares State Bank with Bank of Baroda in 2002. In the early 1990s when the then National Bank of India was merged with Punjab National Bank. were not entirely for reasons of banking stability as such. to 6593 in 1966 and to 9005 in 1969. The merger of ICICI with ICICI Bank and the reverse merger of IDBI Bank with IDBI served multiple objectives. Finally. Second. Also. 20 | P a g e . Implied is the argument that efficiency and profits would be assured once the economies of scale operate. they are not meant. they helped to avoid the complex processes of restructuring the weaker of the units and to foster financial stability. improve efficiency or raise profits. Nedungadi Bank with Punjab National Bank in 2003. The complexities involved in mergers of public sector banking are rarely discussed. and. relatively strong banks. The above examples of mergers have been facilitated to a large extent by banking sector reforms that helped relax some of the restrictions on asset portfolio distribution. to cut costs. On the other hand. however. especially of female labor. This negative aspect of mergers may not. be as serious as when mergers lead to loss of availability of or access to credit or to lower employment. at least in the short term. This process was accelerated when two scheduled banks failed in 1960. mergers could lead to charging of higher fees for the services rendered. After this experiment. Global Trust Bank with Oriental Bank of Commerce. to an extent the advances in information technology have given banks the incentive to consolidate to scale up operations. especially if there is no `effective' competition or if smaller banks exhibit `herd behaviour' in imitating the bigger entities. Unviable banks were weeded out. However. First. This meant either closure or amalgamation with other. as well as HDFC Bank and Times Bank are important examples. mooted by the merging banks in the first instance and approved by the authorities.The number of bank offices increased sharply during this period: From 4151 in 1951 to 5012 in 1961. But these mergers were at the initiative of the authorities. as recommended by the Travancore-Cochin Banking Inquiry Commission (1956). These mergers. they have opened the possibilities of actively promoting universal banking.

Till almost the mid-1990s. The proposition that banks would be `too large to fail' is passé as the 1990s financial crises experience shows. however. One only hopes that political considerations do not influence the final view on the matter. Studies that use stock market data did not show gains from consolidation. What is also important is that it should not lower the number of banks to levels that destroy competition. But there is need for intense research on the issue. each specializing in developing services in a broad region. State Bank of India 21 | P a g e . More recently. studies in the US suggested that mergers based on former did not lead to significant gains either in efficiency or cost-saving. In the present context of global financial market integration. Good internal governance mechanisms and transparency practices need to be also in place. in fact. There is no official view about the optimal number of banks in a country.Unfortunately. before one takes a judgmental view about the number of Indian banks that could have international presence and could compete for international banking business. The Banking Commission recommended in 1972 that national banks be reorganized into two or three all-India banks and six other entities. Banking stability is much more important. suggested that bidders often suffer negative returns partly because of high offer prices and partly because markets revise downward their expectations from the merger. Instead they should allow banks to grow into international entities on their own internal dynamic impulses. The issue however could become complex if foreign banks are allowed to buy out Indian banks. that by itself would not be enough. This was not pursued. The question about the optimal number of banks in the country. Indian banks seeking international presence by exploiting the economies of scale and if possible of scope is an appealing argument. While such a view would obviously be based on their financial strength. and the associated issues of their capital adequacy and their capacity to help Universalisation of banking are matters to be yet settled. The RBI has done well to be transparent by going in for public views on ownership and governance. But this alone cannot be a good ground for consolidation. The general literature on the subject views the impact from two angles: One based on accounting data and the other based on stock price reaction. empirical data supported the view that banks significantly improve their profit and operational efficiency following mergers. there is little of published empirical literature on the impact of mergers in banking in India. Besides the authorities should resist the temptation of taking a proactive stance in determining which Indian bank should have international presence. They.
