International legal practice Norton Rose Group has issued a comprehensive guide – M&A Law in Asia Pacific 2012 – that gives a detailed overview of key issues involved in the conduct of mergers and acquisitions and offers guidance on regulatory constraints covering such transactions in thirteen jurisdictions in the region.
Jake Robson, Partner, Norton Rose (Asia) LLP, commented:
“Whilst global M&A activity levels have been negatively affected by volatility in global markets and the ongoing Eurozone crisis, the Asia Pacific region has, to date, remained largely unaffected and M&A activity remains strong. This has been driven to a large extent by multi-nationals and both Asian and non-Asian institutional and sovereign funds seeking to break into or gain a stronger presence in this high growth region. We are sure that our M&A guide will prove an invaluable tool and quick reference guide for such investors.”
All key issues relevant to M&A activity in the region are covered in the 2012 issue of M&A Law in Asia Pacific including the structuring of M&A transactions in each jurisdiction, details of how takeovers must be conducted for both listed and private companies, foreign ownership restrictions, tax issues and merger control regulations.
