Abstract: This study proposes merger and acquisitions (M&A) antecedents’ model using observations from BRICS countries. It is expected that BRICS countries will remain a hotbed of M&A activity in the future and hence by analyzing BRICS research, we seek to provide a deeper insight into the current state of research, outline new insight, and propose future directions. Using a systematic literature review (SLR) method, we found that antecedents including top leadership role, self-interest of managers, targeted firm’s characteristics, and the dyadic relationship between M&A partners have been limited in BRICS research. We also found that less attention has been devoted to analyzing the antecedents of M&A in countries, such as Russia, Brazil, and South Africa. We construct M&A antecedent’s model with these findings.
