Studies on M&A typically focus on the M&A wave or post-M&A integration. By contrast, this research concentrates on the pre-M&A analysis and planning. Incorporating fuzzy set theory and Monte Carlo simulation, an M&A evaluation and prioritisation model (MAEPM) was established in this study to assist decision makers to implement and execute M&A deals more objectively and eff...
