A merger is when two similarly sized companies become one (usually bigger) company. The corporate action for this one lets you, the shareholder, know that the structure of the company could be changing, subject to the terms of the 'scheme of arrangement'.

If a company you have shares in announces a scheme of arrangement, you’ll be sent a corporate action notification with all the details of this.
