INTRODUCTION

1.1 BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY 

Merger is involved with the combination of two different companies to form one entity with the intension of achieving a particular goal. While

Acquisition takes place when one company purchases the assets of another and inherits its liabilities. Mergers and acquisition was introduced  into insurance industry due to their:

INABILITY TO SETTLE CLAIMS; since the taste of a good insurance transaction lies in the manner in which claim is being handled by the industry, but majority of our insurance industries have failed due to lack of fund to settle or compensate their insured. And this leads to lots of disputes between the insurance and their policyholders, and this area has impinge more on the image of an insurer and the insurance industry as a whole because most of the industries cajole their insurers into paying premium when due, but slow down when it comes to paying claims. Reasons is because most of the industries don’t have sufficient funds or the investments that fetch money to enable them settle their clients, but  rather formulates a thing or the other to wave the settlements. This has brought a bad name to insurance company as a whole as people call them names like selfish lots, sets of legalized cheats it’s a useless exercise to insure in Nigeria and that their clauses are hardly explained to clients while selling polices.
