Tracking M&A deals in Asia-Pacific


The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly presented challenges to many organizations. Leaders have to re-imagine their strategy and values in the context of the new normal, requiring organizations to fundamentally transform both their aspirations and operating models — and at speed.

The Asia Pacific will likely remain an active place for mergers and acquisitions in 2021 due to stronger post-pandemic recovery, opening up of markets, and a growing pool of startups seeking funding, according to S and P Global Market Intelligence report.

Robust M&A appetite in Asia-Pacific suggests transactions will become a key driver for business transformation as companies look to reshape their company portfolio for the future.

This webinar will explore how buyers and sellers have been navigating M&A during the pandemic and lessons learned during COVID that will dictate the consolidation landscape in 2021 and beyond.
