For the Q3 2019 edition of the Intralinks Deal Flow Predictor, we spoke to Professor Dr. Michael Lamla about China’s outbound M&A aspirations.
First half 2015 China M&A volume saw a 41% increase YoY and over 39% YoY growth in mid-market activity. These numbers imply a 2015 run-rate of 6,000 deals.
The early part of 2013 showed some settling down in the Asia Pacific M&A market after a stellar fourth quarter in 2012.
Not to be outdone by their U.S. and European counterparts, Asia-focused hedge funds are having a bit of resurgence this year, with over $3 US billion of new capital being allocated in the second quarter, according to HFR.
