Mergers and acquisitions (M&A) in the corporate wor ld are achieving increasing importance and attentio n especially with the advent of intense globalization . This is evident from the magnitude and growth of deal values and resultant ‘megamergers’ transacted in recent t imes. This research work attempts to assess the imp lication of merger and acquisition of commercial banks in Niger ia on their profitability and other associated meas ures of performance. The research analysis used published a udited accounts of ten (10) out of twentyfour (24) banks that emerged from the consolidation exercise and da ta from the Central Banks of Nigeria which consists of both primary data. The relevant data collected were anal yzed and tested using simple percentage and tables. Subsequently, the three hypotheses formulated in th is study were tested using correlation coefficient (r2) and TTest. The result of the analysis revealed that th ere is significant relationship between pre and pos t merger/acquisition capital base of commercial banks and level of profitability, there is significant d ifference between pre and postmerger acquisition earnings pe r shares. Merger/acquisition have also increased th e capitalization of commercial banks with evidences o f changes in company’s share ownership, increase in the cost of services and changes in bank lending rates. Based on these findings, it can be concluded that the merger and acquisition programme has improved the overall performances of banks significantly and also has contributed immensely to the growth of the real sec tor for sustainable development
