Developed mart targeted M&A deals up 25 %

According to the latest Emerging Markets International Acquisition Tracker  report, 243 Emerging-to-Developed  deals were recorded in the first half of 2010, compared to 194 in the second half of 2009.

“The 25 per cent increase in E2D deals was in no small part due to a resurgent India. After three relatively quiet six month periods, India recorded 50 deals – well up on the 21 of the previous six months,” the report stated. China was also up by nine deals to 39, while South East Asia jumped from 34 to 47 deals. Although there has been a rise in emerging to developed market deals in the past six months, the number of deals from western markets targeting developing market firms’ remains higher.

The report revealed that 748 Developed-to-Emerging (D2E) deals have been witnessed in the past six months showing a 9 per cent increase over the previous six-month period.
“The findings suggest that deal-making confidence is returning quicker in emerging economies than in thedeveloped market.” KPMG Chairman High Growth Markets practice in the UK, Ian Gomes, said.
