Because of the influence of globalization, the regional boundary among nations is removed. The enterprises, pursuing their expanding in global market for profits, tend to adopt transnational M&A. However, a lot of M&A cases were not able to reach an expected performance. Plus, according to previous studies, they showed that the successful rate of M&A was 43% and the failure rate of M&A was 80%. The cultural factors of transnational M&A might be the key to affect transnational M&A performance. Qualitative research was the principle method in this study.
