A two-stage procedure is employed to evaluate the determinants of merger activity in Australian non-bank financial institutions over the period 1992-93 to 1994-95. In the first stage, data envelopment analysis is used to calculate technical and scale efficiency indices using a sample of credit unions. The second stage uses limited dependent variable regression techniques to relate credit union efficiency scores, along with other managerial, regulatory and financial factors, to the level of post-deregulation merging and acquiring activity. The results indicate that capital structure, asset quality, management ability, earnings and liquidity are a significant influence on the level of mergers. Two primary influences on credit union mergers would appear to be the perceived compatibility in associational bond and membership, and the regulatory environment in which these deposit-taking institutions operate.
