Title: Post acquisition performance; A study of Bank of Africa - Amalgamated Bank, Ghana.
Authors: Agyapong, Kofi Amponsah
Issue Date: 6-Apr-2016
Abstract: This study aims at assessing the performance of BOA after acquiring Amalbank. The study employed financial ratios as well as questionnaires to fulfill the objectives of the research. From analysis conducted it is evident from the customers perspective that there has been improvement in service delivery, access to ATM, reliability of ATM, corporate image, loan application processes and an increase in the number of branches in Kumasi. Further analysis of annual reports revealed that there has generally been improvement in profitability, liquidity and financial leverage, economies of scale, EPS and growth in assets, operating income, shareholders’ funds and deposits. Growth rates for assets, operating income, shareholders fund and deposit although declining were however positive. There has however been a deterioration in OER and an increase in non-performing loan ratio. Growth rates in assets, deposits and operating income have also been declining. (Although positive) It is therefore recommended that BOA employs measures to arrest the increasing nonperforming loan ratio in other to avoid liquidity problems in the future.
