(n.)

1. A transaction in which one corporate entity is combined with another corporate entity. A variety of types of transactions are possible, the most common being the "triangular" merger whereby one corporation ("Buyer") creates a subsidiary ("Merger Sub") into which the other corporation ("Target") is combined, thereby creating a single corporation. A wave of mergers occurred in the 1980s due to the loosening of regulations by the Reagan administration. A similar boom occurred in the late 1990s, and, thus far, a wave of mergers in 2005 suggests that it will be another huge year of corporate combinations. Mergers create corporations with annoying, nonsensical names like "AOL Time Warner," and "JPMorganChase" and "PriceWaterHouseCoopers." Frequently, corporations fail to realize any additional profit from these transactions, despite many workers losing their jobs due to the supposed "efficiencies" created.

2. A transaction performed by the cockiest, least self-aware, obnoxious assholes in the worlds of investment banking and law. The area of expertise in which one performs mergers is known as "Mergers and Acquisitions" or "M&A."
1. The merger of AT&T Wireless and Cingular Wireless expanded the digital network of Cingular substantially.

That one unwanted friend that pushes his/her way into the friend group. The one that no one knows how they got into the group and no one likes. They usually start by following your group around until they are a common appearance and are progressively more annoying as they merge deeper into the group.
Jake: How the hell did we let the merger in the group chat, all he does is follow us around.
Rick: Idk someone else added him.

Jake: goddamn it now we have to make another one, Just act like we still use the first one.

Rick: k, thank god.

Two people that attend Miami University located in Oxford, Ohio that probably started out having a Pre-Med major and a Business Major, but as usual they both ended up graduating with a communication major. They probably talk all the time about how they kissed under the arch located under Upham Hall when the clock struck midnight. What they don't talk about is how they got sloshed every Friday and Saturday night at Brick Street, a local night club in Oxford. Any offspring they have have to go to Miami University, otherwise, the Miami Mergers will disown them.
Dad: Did you know that your Mom and I are Miami Mergers.
Son: If I hear this fucking story one more time Dad I will lose my shit.
