Each year we analyse private M&A transactions we have advised on around the world, to gauge the state of the market and to give our clients a clear sense of how trends are changing. Our analysis in 2017 of our global private M&A deals indicates, amongst other things: M&A volumes remaining strong, despite some adverse trends such as moves towards greater intervention on foreign investments in some markets with competition remaining high for quality assets and private equity strategies for winning auctions paying off with some notable wins; more deals than ever subject to antitrust and regulatory approvals, but sellers increasingly pushing the execution risk back to buyers; and a general hardening of seller position on deal terms, with more risk than ever pushed onto warranty and indemnity insurance. Registration for this seminar will open on 4 April 2018.

Location: 9th Floor, Three Exchange Square, Central, Hong Kong
