India one of most attractive merger and acquisitions destinations in Asia.
June, 26th 2017

India is among the top Merger and Acquisition (M&A) markets in emerging Asia, largely driven by favourable economic and demographic conditions and an encouraging regulatory regime, says a report.

According to a joint report by global risk mitigation firm Kroll and deal tracking firm Mergermarket, in the first half of 2016, 82 deals worth close to $9 billion were announced, "putting India on track for another banner year" of inbound investment.

India attracted 6 per cent of all US outbound M&A transactions in 2015, surpassing the 2 per cent of outbound M&A directed at China that year. So far in 2016, India has continued to attract US interest, with $3.1 billion through 27 deals compared to similar US investment in China at $1.3 billion and 13 deals.

"General sentiment among foreign investors for Indian investment opportunities remains strong, creating a bright outlook for inbound M&A through the rest of this year and into 2017," the report said.

The report, however, noted that as the pipeline of deals grows, foreign investors are expected to deploy due diligence process which is rigorous, comprehensive and truly independent -- one that will assist them in making decisions with confidence and to be in a better position to protect such investments, says Kroll Managing Director and Head of South Asia Reshmi Khurana.

The report further said, technology, media and telecommunications companies accounted for 26 per cent of deal value and 22 per cent of deal volume since 2011. The country's e-commerce market had generated maximum interest from investors during the said period.

Inbound M&A in the consumer sector also saw substantial activity led by demographic factors such as the emergence of an increasingly young and working population and rapid urbanisation.

The industrial and manufacturing space has also shown promise, courting 9 per cent of deal value and 22 per cent of deal volume since 2011, on the heels of Prime Minister Modi's 'Make in India' campaign to attract further overseas investment.
