Australia-Japan Society of NSW
The last couple of years have seen another wave of outbound Japanese investment: more than 600 cross-border deals valued at $US700 billion were done worldwide by Japanese companies in 2011, according to Thomson Reuters.
Unlike some past investments in golf courses and property, which ended in tears, these deals seem focused on core business synergies. And so are they more likely to succeed?
Our discussion will focus on recent Japanese M&A in Australia, with two eminently qualified speakers. Kevin Chamberlain, Partner at AJS corporate member KPMG, will set the scene with an overview of recent Japanese M&A activity. He will be followed by Tatsuhiko Wada, Business Development Executive at TAL Limited (formerly Tower Australia Limited) who will comment on the experience of Dai-ichi Life’s acquisition of Tower, which began with a 28% share in 2008, followed by 100% ownership in May 2011.
Kevin Chamberlain is the Advisory lead partner for the Global Japanese Practice in Australia, and is responsible for KPMG services to Japanese clients investing in Australia.
