Published in association with Mergermarket, this report provides a comprehensive review of Q1 2020 M&A deal flows across Japan.

Here are some highlights from the report:

  • The largest deal of Q1 2020 came from Japan’s industrials & chemicals sector, which also accounted for the third largest announced deal.
  • Of the 112 deals announced in the quarter, only nine involved an overseas buyer, and just one country – South Korea – was the source of multiple bids.
  • Japanese companies are sitting on large cash piles – US$4.8tn according to corporate filings.
  • Sector watch: Industrials & chemicals
