Abstract:
When Bank of America bought FleetBoston in a $47 billion deal, in November 2003, it expanded its presence to the markets in northeastern America where it had lacked presence. Bank of America felt that the deal provided it an opportunity to emerge stronger. Analysts however, felt that the benefits the bank would derive would not justify the 42% premium Bank of America paid to FleetBoston shareholders.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To discuss whether Bank of America would be able to realise the synergies of the merger
  • To understand the growth strategies of Bank of America and FleetBoston
  • To know how mergers and acquisitions are changing the face of the US banking industry.
