This paper discusses on identifying the effects of regulators-guided mergers on production efficiency gains of Malaysian banks as measured by revenue efficiency ratio. The paper also examines the potential bank-specific and macroeconomics determinants correlated with revenue efficiency. The study sample consisted of banks that were engaged in mergers during 2002-2009 matched with those not engaged in mergers as the control sample. Results showed that revenue efficiency did not improve after the merger. Meanwhile, size, market power and management quality were shown to be correlated with revenue efficiency.
