Deal Drivers Southeast Asia & India: Spotlight on M&A Trends in H1 2020 and beyond

Virtual briefing in partnership with Mergermarket, an Acuris company

DATE: 2 July 2020

TIME: 14:00 Singapore / 11:30am India

On the back of a strong M&A record in 2019, SE Asia saw a strong start in Q1 2020 with a total deal value of US$25.1bn. While, India experienced a 30.4% drop in M&A in 2019, there was an expectation of a strong 2020 lead by the government of India encouraging disinvestments. The M&A deal flow has experienced a slowdown in the two regions because of Covid-19 crisis, and the outlook remains uncertain.

How corporates in India and across SE Asia perform during this crisis is yet to be ascertained; however, some bright spots are emerging in new-age sectors in the two regions as the economies remain underserved. It is expected that corporates will focus on preserving liquidity and restructuring going forward and exploring private equity strategies which will evolve in the current environment.

In this live panel discussion, we took stock of M&A activity in two of APAC’s most active regions and consider the areas of greatest concern, as well as opportunities to be sought after.
