Regulatory and activist update: Game changing the deal environment

The new regulatory regime, aimed at driving competitiveness has spurred M&A activity and mmanagement buyouts in Japan to their fastest pace in more than a decade as intensifying governance pressure has created more opportunities. With take-privates on the rise and headline deals showcasing what can now be done, the Tokyo Stock Exchange’s recent push for better capital efficiency is also expected to create greater pressure on companies as activist investors pursue more difficult and high-profile investments. A panel of regulators, investors, and advisors will discuss the effects of new regulations on Japanese dealmaking.

  • How is governance and regulatory pressure driving the activist agenda?
  • How are regulations driving more take private deals and how accessible are they?
  • What is the pipeline for deals over the next 12 months?
  • In what part of the market are we likely to see the most corporate divestment?
