We are pleased to present this Cayman Asia M&A Market Report which recaps merger and acquisition activity involving Cayman public companies listed on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong (“SEHK”) in the first half of 2017.
Conyers is particularly active in this space, leading the Asian market in advising on Mergers & Acquisitions. The first six months of 2017 saw 68 equity acquisitions among SEHK listed companies, with an aggregate deal value of HK$45.72 billion (US$5.858 billion). Active industry sectors included Construction & Engineering, Consumer Services and Technology.
Growth in Asian M&A activity remains slow, with both deal volume and value declining. The same is true globally, where strategic M&A transactions have decreased. This is not surprising given geo-political uncertainties. However, consortium bids led by private equity have offset some of this decline.
This report provides details of transactions and statistical information about the size and growth of the Cayman public companies market in Asia, which we hope will be of interest to our clients and Cayman market followers.
