Cross-border deals: Navigating the markets

Overseas buying has caught the attention of investors, both inbound and outbound, as business owners increase their appetite for engaging in cross-border M&A. Japan is a hotspot for inbound investment as the country has a large pool of solid assets, with the opportunity for value creation and overseas expansion. However, there are long-terms challenges that remain such as an aging population, questions marks on if and when non-core divestitures will happen, and ability for overseas investors to gain traction curtailing the growth momentum. Our panel of experienced investors and dealmakers outline the driving forces for cross-border activity, including the hotspots in the Japanese market.

  • Which sectors in the region are most attractive to active overseas and cash-rich local dealmakers?
  • How increased protectionism and geopolitical risk impact cross-border M&A?
  • How are companies integrating domestic & overseas operations to establish global management systems and structures?
  • How do you navigate the cultural aspects of integration and drive value creation?
