Merger and acquisition (M&A), as the most fierce way of enterprise competition, has been always focused on for long time in capital market. With the fast developing global economics integration trend, developed countries have promoted the 5th worldwide M&A. since 1990's. Meanwhile, the domestic enterprises have started their M&A activities on a large scale along with the gobal M&A. Nowadays, M&A has become one of the most important methods for Chinese enterprises' expanding, developing and to participating in the competition in the international markets.Whereas, the Chinese's enterprises' M&A with government's participating is very different from those in developed countries because of the feature of China's transitional economy.

Chinese government's behaviour in M&A comes into being graudally during our economy system's transition, which has its own historical background and institutional reason. We can not go further without acquainting this.

Some normal research has given answers to this problem, but those have no empirical data to surport. We collect 1189 M&A observations in Chinese capital market from 1996 to 2003. The results indicate that government behaviour leads to low efficiency, no matter the analysis from short-term abnormal return, long-term...
