Its raining M&A's

The volume of overseas mergers and acquisitions (M&As) by India Inc has grown phenomenally in the first half of the current fiscal and is likely to reach further heights over the next one year.
In the fiscal year 2006, the outbound M&As from India had an aggregate value of $13.97 billion spread over 480 deals. However, the M&As in the first half of the current fiscal surpassed this figure and stood at $25.58 billion, according to the data available with KPMG.

“The average ticket size of these outbound M&A deals from India had also been growing from $25 million in 2005 to $39 million in 2006,” Mr Preet Mohan Singh, Director (Corporate Finance), KPMG India Pvt Ltd

The key drivers behind this growth are increasing global consolidation, cost of production and valuation arbitrage, customs/skill set acquisition.
