Measuring the effect of virtual mergers on banks’ efficiency levels:A non πarametric analysis. In common with Ν. Τzeremes. MPRA Paper 23696, University Library of Munich, Germany (2010).

By using a sample of 29 Greek commercial banks the paper provides a six step procedure in order to evaluate whether a potential bank merger can exhibit economies of scale and characterized as favorable.
