Deal Drivers Japan: M&A Trends in Q4 2020 and beyond

Virtual briefing in partnership with Mergermarket, an Acuris company

 

DATE: 26 November 2020

TIME: 11:00am Tokyo

Japan dealmaking is seeing a surge in activity, spurred by a rebound in domestic M&A and an uptick in crossborder deals. Domestic transactions announced in Q3 2020 totaled US$54.11bn across 83 deals, compared with US$7.86bn across 71 deals in Q3 2020.

Industry consolidation moves appear to have quickened pace and is expected across certain sectors while large companies are also accelerating the pace of non-core divestitures to focus on core businesses. Meanwhile, outbound deals generated US$15.31bn across 27 deals for Q3 2020, representing a 3.42x surge in deal value despite 21 fewer deals compared with Q2 2020 (US$4.47bn, 48 deals).

In this live panel discussion with Daiwa Securities Co. Ltd., Renesas Electronics Corporation, Nishimura & Asahi, and KPMG FAS, we took stock of M&A activity in Japan and considered the opportunities that dealmakers should be focusing on.
