Asia Pacific M&A Predicted to Grow 14% in 1H 2018

15 February 2018

According to the latest Intralinks Deal Flow Predictor, healthy double-digit growth in early-stage M&A activity in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region over the past six months is expected to translate into a 14% year-over-year increase in the number of APAC M&A deals announced in 1H 2018. We expect the strongest growth in APAC deal announcements to come from the energy & power, industrials and materials sectors in North Asia (China, Hong Kong and South Korea), India, Southeast Asia and Australia.








  • Global and regional M&A predictions for 1H 2018, including a heat map on sector activity
  • A spotlight feature on post-merger integration and deal success
  • An interview with Professor Scott Moeller, the director and founder of the M&A Research Centre at Cass Business School, and Philip Whitchelo, vice president, strategic business development at Intralinks, on the findings of their recently published study into abandoned acquisitions and how to avoid the deal failure trap
