Merger & Acquisitions

India’s domestic Merger & Acquisitions (M&A) activity grew to US$105.6 billion in 2022, a rise of 190%. Riding on the back of FDI inflows, encouraging lending and aggressive corporate expansion strategies, India has witnessed strong M&A activity in the past decade.
Additionally, pragmatic reforms such as the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) and facilitative fast track merger processes have provided an impetus to the M&A landscape in the country. That said, the regulations governing M&A activities of Indian companies are dependent on the private/ public, listed/ unlisted and non-resident/ resident status of the companies involved. And the regulatory ecosystem that oversees M&A activity in India comprises of Companies Act, 2013, Securities law, Merger control law and several other associated law and duties.
