Abstract: This paper proposes to adopt data envelopment analysis (DEA) based on Malmquist total factor productivity (TFP) indices methods to evaluate the effect of mergers and acquisitions (M&As) on acquirers in short-term and long-term windows. Based on analysis of 32 M&A deals conducted by Chinese real estate firms from 2000-2011, the study results demonstrate that the effect of M&A on developers' performance is positive. Through M&A, the developers' Malmquist TFP experienced a steady growth; their technology had noticeable progress immediately after acquisition; and their technical efficiency suffered a slight decrease in the short-term after acquisition, but then achieved a marked increase in the long-term with realization of integration and synergy. However, there is no evidence that the real estate firms have achieved scale efficiency improvement after M&A in either short-term or long-term.
