Mergers and acquisitions cross $10 Billion
December, 22nd 2009

With a total of 267 deals for the period of January - December (till December 13) this year, mergers and acquisitions (M&As) crossed a little over $10 billion (Rs.47,000 crore). Of the total deals, the 142 domestic deals valued about $6 billion and 125 cross-border deals pegged at over $4 billion, which include both outbound and inbound investments, reports the Economic Times.

Domestic M&As have sustained the momentum and were pegged at $5.8 billion during the January-December period, while outbound and inbound deals have reduced, and totaled $4.23 billion. This is because there have been several large restructuring deals and significant consolidation in many industries.

Also, more than half of the cross-border deals - 64, were outbound deals where domestic companies acquired businesses overseas, according to preliminary analysis by global consultancy firm, Grant Thornton. The outbound deals were pegged at $1.12 billion.

CG Srividya, Partner at Grant Thornton said, "The year has also seen significant consolidation activities with domestic dealmakers outdoing their cross-border counterparts in M&A deal activity. After a gap of three years, we are seeing domestic M&A being higher than both inbound and outbound deals put together."

Also, private equity investments including qualified institutional placements (QIPs) were pegged at $11.17 billion during January-December period. Overall the total value of deals (M&A and PE) during the year almost halved at $21.20 billion, as against $41.54 billion and $70.14 billion registered in 2008 and 2007 respectively.

After the economic crisis in 2008-end, slowly there has been a revival with companies reporting better earnings, stock markets improving and the deal activity going up. Now there is a renewed interest in QIPs and fund raising plans by corporates. The value of cross-border deals (both inbound and outbound) reduced by nearly 84 percent from 2008. The Russian government's acquisition of a strategic stake in Sistema-Shyam Telecom for $676 million was the largest inbound deal during 2009.

While there is clearly an increase in deal activity recently compared to the initial few months of the year, Indian firms require more confidence, risk appetite and the urge to grow rapidly before we get back to the peak activity levels of 2007 and most parts of 2008, analysts said. Also, the deals including DLF's acquisition of DLF Assets will further boost deal values this year.
