M&A in Vietnam and Asia
Network in Vietnam and Asia
Recently, Asian countries have achieved a remarkable development, which has brought out huge demand for M&A opportunities. We provide strong supports for the M&A transactions between Japan and Asia as well as Europe and America. We have built our own network globally and responded to the M&A needs of our client companies.
Vietnam and Asia
- With Vietnam as the core axi, we have established a wide network in the Southeast Asian countries and provided comprehensive supports for the entry of our clients in these markets. Our strength is originating transactions by utilizing our own network and providing clients with information in a timely manner. Especially, we are concentrating on countries such as Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore, where the middle income population has recently achieved a striking growth and Japanese clients have accordingly focused their interests.
- While most of the Japanese companies entered into Vietnam to establish overseas manufacturing bases in the past, the middle income population has grown to attract their attentions as a market for consumers. As a result, activities related to M&A are currently active in every sector from manufacturing to service.
- We offer high-quality M&A services with our extensive experience and knowledge of local business practices, legal, accounting, other regulations, and minimize in advance the obstacles we face in M&A deals.
