How Can UK Companies Benefit from M&A Deals?

Watch our free webinar and learn more about mergers and acquisitions, and how to secure the best transactions in Japan within the finance and business services market.

Background to the Webinar

According to the Financial Times, “Japanese companies have record aggregate cash balances just shy of $1tn”.

The Japanese corporate sector has an impressive accumulation of financial firepower.

The country also has the world’s second largest insurance market after the US; the gross premium income of the industry is estimated at USD 655 billion.

The combination of cash-rich companies and financial institutions in a country with a declining population has resulted in a spate of large scale overseas acquisitions by Japanese companies in pursuit of international markets.

Domestic transactions, which consolidate companies’ positions in their sectors, have also been increasing in number and size.

Take a look at our webinar featuring Mr Yuuichiro Nakajima of Crimson Phoenix who will uncover some of the areas of opportunity for UK-based companies to explore engaging in M&A transactions with counterparts in Japan.

Many Japanese firms recognise the strategic imperative to expand abroad and have the resources to do so.

Yet others feel the need to find solutions to succession issues as well as to seek new business models and technologies from overseas partners, at the expense of ceding management control.
