Keynote Panel: Japanese M&A update: Navigating the turmoil

The Japanese M&A market continues to show promise, with 3,380 deals recorded in 2022 according to Dealogic – the highest volume since 2008. Despite geopolitics, trade tensions, favourable rates, and inflationary pressures, acquirors of Japanese assets can still rely on reasonable valuations, favourable exchange rates, and continued deal flow from the disposal of non-core businesses. However, for outbound transactions, Japanese companies are remaining on the sidelines, for now. Our panel of experts will discuss.

  • What investment themes and economic trends will drive Japanese M&A in the next 12 months?
  • Domestic M&A: Will deals between Japanese companies continue post-pandemic?
  • Outbound M&A: Where and what is Japan Inc. buying?
  • Inbound M&A: How much M&A activity will we see and what are the factors in Japan’s favour
