Local Spotlight: Deal Drivers in Japan - Bonus Q&A

By Robert Torio, Content Marketing Manager, APAC

At a recent webinar that we co-hosted with Mergermarket, more than 500 dealmakers across Asia Pacific and Japan joined Mai Mizuta, Mergermarket’s Asia-Pacific Editor & Acuris Japan Bureau Chief, and panelists Yoshinobu Agu, Managing Director, Head of M&A Division, Citigroup Global Markets, and Yoichiro Shimizu, Datasite’s Head of Japan.

Agu and Shimizu shared their expert insights and our audience contributed their views about the market. Several participants also raised forward-looking questions that our panellists did not get a chance to address during the webinar, including:

  • What is the outlook for Japanese investors in terms of Southeast Asia and Asia in general?
  • How should the impact of COVID-19 be considered in business valuations?
  • What sectors of outbound acquisition will arise post-COVID-19?
  • How would the pandemic affect M&A expansion into India from Japan?

These are just some of the questions that were answered by our panel in this bonus Q&A piece. Get your copy today.
