From the Paper:

"The methods used in the examination of merger outcomes in Malaysian banking sectors include input and output variables. The inputs used in the study of the financial sector include operating and interest expenses. The operating expenses are expenses incurred in the management of a bank's daily operations including personal costs, establishment costs, marketing expenses, and general as well as administrative expenses. Banks' establishment costs are expenses pooled towards payment of premises rents, maintenance as well as repair of expenses as well as depreciation costs. Banks personnel costs are expenses incurred in the regular activities and daily banking duties that include employees' wages and salaries. The operating expenses usually reflect a bank's efficiency in daily management of resources. The variance of the cost of personnel directly affect the operating expenses, which is an indicator of banks efficiency or inefficiency in management and control of operating costs (Bank Negara Malaysia )."
