Q2. Will synergy cash flows allow the banks to increase their debt?
of shares of Mellon post deal (*Cumulative total earnings/Pre deal EPS)
1152.13 million (=748.887/0.65)
Shares of Mellon (1:1 exchange ratio)
411.9 million
Shares of Bank of New York
740.23 million (=1152.13-411.9)

To maintain the EPS pre and post deal, the following exchange ratio is calculated:-
Exchange ratio= Bank of New York post deal shares/ Bank of New York pre deal shares =740.23 million/751.8million =0.9846
The exchange ratio of 1:0.9846 will maintain the EPS both pre and post deal.
