In plenty of realistic situations, multi-attribute group decision-making (MAGDM) is ubiquitous and significant in daily activities of individuals and organizations. Among diverse tools for coping with MAGDM, granular computing-based approaches constitute a series of viable and efficient theories by means of multi-view problem solving strategies. In this paper, in order to handle MAGDM issues with interval-valued neutrosophic (IN) information, we adopt one of the granular computing (GrC)-based approaches, known as multigranulation probabilistic models, to address IN MAGDM problems. More specifically, after revisiting the related fundamental knowledge, three types of IN multigranulation probabilistic models are designed at first. Then, some key properties of the developed theoretical models are explored. Afterwards, a MAGDM algorithm for merger and acquisition target selections (M&A TSs) with IN information is summed up. Finally, a real-life case study together with several detailed discussions is investigated to present the validity of the developed models.
