About Mergers and Acquisitions Summit

After a record year(2018) for Indian M&A, dealmakers paused a little in the first quarter of 2019.Long-term prospects for the Indian transactions market look good, on the back of a stable and a strong government at the Centre with its laser focus on growth and development, along with ongoing consolidation and restructuring activities. While consolidation remained the primary deals driver, financial deleveraging, faster pace of insolvency proceedings and opportunistic buys by the big industry players also added to the push. As per reports India is expected to see M&A deals of over USD 52 billion in 2019 as mergers and acquisitions in the country are expected to remain stable despite global headwinds. India's business-friendly reforms and high consumption growth potential will help garner interest from both local and foreign investors. The region's weaker performance in 2019 can be attributed to a reduction in Chinese outbound deals due to government restrictions on outward investment. On a broader scale, this, in turn, may dampen economic momentum across the Asia Pacific
