¿Las cooperativas tienen las mismas motivaciones de las otras empresas para llevar a cabo una fusión? Con este objetivo se realizó el presente estudio. Empezó con la fusión de cinco cooperativas con las siguientes características: las asociaciones de agricultores, pequeñas empresas, que pertenece al mismo sector industrial, con productos y mercados similares. Con base en la teoría, un cuestionario con escala tipo Likert de cinco puntos fue desarrollado con el fin de verificar las hipótesis más citados en la literatura. Los cuestionarios fueron respondidos por los gerentes que tomaron la decisión de fusión y participaron en todo el proceso. Los resultados de la hipótesis se compararon con los indicadores financieros de la empresa y confirmaron la opinión de los gestores.
Do the cooperatives have the same motivations as other companies to carry out a merger? With this we performed the present study. It starts with the merger of five cooperatives with the following characteristics: farmers' associations, small businesses belonging to the same industrial segment, with similar products and markets. Based on the theory a questionnaire with Likert-type five-point scale was developed in order for the verification of the hypotheses most often cited in the literature. The questionnaires were answered by the managers who made the merger decision and participated in the entire process. The results of the hypothesis were compared with the financial indicators of the company and confirmed the opinion of managers.
