This article is based on the theory of structural holes, based on the company network formed by the company’s senior management team serving and taking part, and empirically studied the impact of the structural hole characteristics of Chinese listed company network on corporate mergers and acquisitions. The study found that because the company has more structural holes in the company network, it helps the company gain information advantages and thus obtain more M & A opportunities. The richness of the structural holes owned by the company has a significant positive correlation with the M & A intentions. This article studies the social network and corporate mergers and acquisitions from the perspective of the company network formed by the senior management team serving and taking part in the job, which enriches the research results in related fields.
