Upstream merger

An upstream merger involves merging into a significantly larger firm. One reason for the smaller firm to do so is that it can gain access to the broader product line, geographical reach, expertise, and administrative capabilities of the larger firm.

An upstream merger can also be defined as the merger of a subsidiary company into its parent entity.
