Deal Drivers: APAC Q1 2021

In partnership with Mergermarket

The APAC region began 2021 in a hopeful mood, with the COVID-19 virus largely in retreat and optimism about the prospects of economic recovery.

For many parts of the region, that recovery began in H2 2020, with the bounce-back in M&A markets particularly buoyant. Deal values more than doubled from H1 2020, and there was a marked acceleration in deal volumes in Q4.

Recovery in dealmaking continued in Q1, with many parts of APAC logging stronger figures than in the same periods in 2020 and 2019.

Where does the region go from here?
