This paper investigates consolidation and restructuring in the banking and financial institutions (BFIs) in Nepal, predominately through the mergers and acquisitions (M&A) process. Despite making significant contributions to the economy, financial institutions in Nepal are often guilty of malpractice, lack corporate governance practices, and condone unhealthy competition in loan disbursement and deposit collection processes. Due to poor professional practices, high numbers of BFIs threaten the financial stability in the country. 
The purpose of this research is to study the effect of M&A on the financial performance of commercial banks in Nepal. Therefore, this presentation evaluates the financial performance of the selected banks based on the financial ratios (profitability, liquidity, and leverage) from the perspective of pre-merger and post-merger periods covering 2013-2019.
