It is important to choose an appropriate analysis method in order to test the previously developed theoretically model. Prior research that studied the employees reactions in M&As has applied qualitative studies (e.g., Kusstatscher & Cooper, 2005) and quantitative studies (e.g., Ambrose & Schminke, 2009; Dick et al., 2006; Gunkel et al., 2015; Knippenberg et al., 2002; Rafferty & Griffin, 2006; Rafferty & Restubog, 2009; Schweiger & Denisi, 1991).

However, the majority of these studies employ simple regression analyses in order to test their hypotheses.
