Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) in India are expected to continue this year, driven by domestic consolidation, market share expansion and entry into new markets. Companies are sending strong signals that they intend to aim for bigger M&A targets in 2018. India continues to see reasonably high volumes of M&A activity, both domestic & cross border, driven by a relatively stable economy. The liberalization of government policies continued interests from both strategic and financial investors. 2017 saw higher volume of deals (1022 deals worth $46.8 billion), compared to 2016(895 deals valued at $53.2 billion). There has been a spate of high-profile transactions in India in the last few years, whether domestic or international, and both inbound and outbound. With the government continually working towards reforms on all fronts, be it in its regulatory policies to attract foreign investors, providing an impetus to the manufacturing sector with Make in India, improving India's Ease of Doing Business rankings, or providing solace to the much-beleaguered infrastructure sector by paving the path for real estate investment trusts (REITs)/Infrastructure Investment Trusts (InvITs), there is no looking back. On an allied front, practically all laws which could impact M&A transactions are in a state of evolution. Merger and acquisition (M&A) is the path, businesses take to achieve exponential and not just linear growth and therefore continues to generate interest. Inventicon's 3rd Annual Mergers & Acquisitions Summit is aimed at bringing together the right blend of M&A leaders across various industries to highlight, discuss and conclude as to how a merger & acquisition can propel the Indian economy into the 21st century.
