New State of M&A: Japan

For all the advances in recent years, just how digitally mature and technologically sophisticated is the M&A, due diligence, and asset marketing process in Japan? How are Japanese dealmakers using technology to overcome challenges?

Moreover, what does the process look like today, and how might technology and accelerating digitization change the dealmaking process over the next 5 years?    

These are some of the key questions we wanted to investigate and answer in this research, which involved surveying 100+ Japanese M&A practitioners from corporates, private equity firms, investments banks, and law and professional services firms, for their views on the subject.

What's Inside?

  • Analysis: Digital maturity of Japanese M&A and technological innovations
  • 2020 The Current State of M&A in Japan
  • 2025 The Future State of M&A in Japan

The respondents, who form part of a global survey of 2,235 practitioners, not only provide insight on the current and future state of the dealmaking process, their responses reveal some interesting regional similarities and differences in opinion.
