Abstract

We use a sample of acquired and non-acquired commercial banks from the principal EU markets and logistic regression analysis to investigate the relationship between bank characteristics and the likelihood to be acquired. The results indicate the existence of differences across countries either in terms of the significance of the variables or the sign of their coefficients.
