The research was conducted to emphasize on the financial performance of the targeted banks i.e Allied bank, NIB bank and Faysal Bank after merger and acquisition. To analyze the performance two tests were performed namely profitability measures (ROA , ROE and EPS ) and paired sample t-test. After the conduction it was concluded that both of them showed the mixed results which leaded some of the banks to the positive impact and some of the banks to the negative impact of merger and acquisition. But if we talk about the overall performance in longer run we can say that banks have slightly shown improvement in their financial performance even if the results of the first year of merger were declined but with the passage of time it increased and a continues to improve.
