Acquiring Your competitor: ins and outs of domestic M&A

Financial experts generally agree on two fundamental principles concerning Japan's economy: domestic investment is necessary to drive growth, and urgent reforms are needed for the Tokyo Stock Exchange, where nearly 50% of listed prime TSE firms are trading at PBRs below 1.0x. What does the current M&A market in Japan look like? What do experts anticipate for the coming years, especially considering the possibility that interest rates will rise? If you are considering solidifying your position in the Japanese market by acquiring your competitors, make sure to book early for this event.
