By Vikram Chakravarty and Soon Ghee Chua
The Asian market is heating up, with both local and international firms looking to get in on mergers and acquisitions. M&A will play a pivotal role in the restructuring of all manner of industries in Asia. This restructuring will increase competitiveness, so making the most of it requires understanding why deal-making in Asia is unique and why it is important to make the right deals, with the right partners, at the right time.
Mergers and acquisitions have not traditionally been part of the corporate mindset for many Asian companies, but this will have to change as M&As begin to dominate Asia's business landscape. The next 10 years in particular will be decidedly important for establishing competitiveness in a changing marketplace.
In Asian Mergers and Acquisitions: Riding the Wave, Vikram Chakravarty and Soon Ghee Chua show how waves of consolidations have begun to sweep through Asia, and demonstrate how these events will play out much differently in Asia than they have in other parts of the world.
Packed with valuable information on how Asian M&As work, the book points to the fragmented nature of Asian countries, markets, and customers, the rise of Asian economies and firms, and the growth of cross-border business as companies race for access to markets, technologies, and brands. As Asia's star continues to rise, so do the opportunities for both local players and multinationals.
