About the course

Driven by global economic recovery, improved investors' confidence and t​echnological disruption in recent years, the robust growth in mergers and acquisitions (M&A) activity in Asia and across the globe is set to continue. Despite volatile financial markets, Asian corporations are showing a strong appetite for acquisitions, led by mega deals from China, Japan and India.

To help organisations structure winning deals, this programme provides participants an end-to-end understanding of the entire M&A value chain including strategy, valuation, financing options, negotiation and implementation issues associated with M&A. Special topics include cross-border acquisitions and post-merger integration.


At the end of the course, participants are expected to gain an understanding of:

  • The role of M&A as a legitimate activity in any entity’s corporate strategy and growth policy
  • The processes involved in M&A, including target identification, due diligence, negotiation, and implementation
  • Common tools and techniques in valuation including estimation of synergy and determination of premium
  • Deal structuring, including method of payments
  • Specific issues in corporate restructuring, leverage buyouts, private equity, and cross border acquisitions


The 3-day programme will be conducted with an interactive seminar-style approach supported by relevant case studies and group breakout sessions.

Who should attend

Typical participants include, but are not limited to:

  • Market / Business development managers
  • Corporate strategy managers
  • CFOs
  • Directors/Leaders of SMEs
  • Middle to senior level executives who are involved at any stage of M&A for their organisations
