Abstract: This article focuses on cross-border mergers carried out between 2008 and 2020 with Czech companies, while in the introduction the reader is introduced to the entire issue of cross-border mergers together with the definition of the reasons for this transaction. For a clear definition of adequate and currently valid legislation in this area, the historical development of the essential European directives regulating mergers and their amendments until the beginning of 2022 is presented in Chapter 2, with the determination of the obligations that companies incur when carrying out a cross-border merger. A substantial part of the text is focused on the analysis of the total number of cross-border mergers that were implemented with Czech companies in the years specified above. The total frequency is then broken down and analyzed according to the individual member states in which the company participating in the cross-border merger with the Czech company had its headquarters, and the basic parameters of the merger were examined. The greatest attention is paid to the mergers of Czech and German companies, which are expected to be very frequent due to the geographical location of both countries, and to the analysis of the individual elements of a cross-border merger according to the completed merger project. The last part of the entire text deals with the evaluation of the management and performance of companies in the years following the chosen decisive date of the merger of the companies participating in the Czech-German cross-border merger.
