Write a fully referenced individual essay (maximum 1,500 words excluding references) addressing the following proposition: Accounting has a

negligible role in either developing appropriate M&A (Mergers & Acquisitions) strategies, or in allowing us to judge whether M&A activity has

been successful.
Guidance

In preparing your answer you might find it useful to take the following approach:

• Discuss relevant theory on M&A activity, its role in business practice, and the determinants of its success or failure.
• Drawing on your research of relevant academic literature and examples from practice, discuss the role – if any – of accounting on the various

stages of M&A activity as well as its role in informing stakeholders on entities’ post M&A performance.
• Considering the various lenses through which one may view the topic, critically discuss whether you think accounting plays a minor or a major

role in M&A activity.
To complete this exercise, you must carry out your own search of the literature and provide evidence of your ability to analyse, synthesize, and

critique relevant theoretical concepts and research methods. You will also evaluate the practical implications of alternative views and

propositions on current issues in accounting practice.
