Mellon Financial and The Bank of New York

Case Solution

Bob Kelly, the new CEO of Mellon Financial, is considering the terms of a proposed "merger of equals" with The Bank of New York, just before the final Board meeting to approve the deal. The combination offers a great strategic fit, and the expected synergies are large. However, the proposed exchange ration values Mellon at a discount to its last closing price, even though it is the smaller and non-surviving bank. Kelly must consider the various dimensions of the deal--specifically the value of synergies, the form of consideration, and the deal's impact on the eps of both sides--and determine whether it is in the best interests of Mellon, the city of Pittsburgh, and Mellon's shareholders.
