Abstract

Following the financial crisis since 2009, on average 38% of annual M& A activity has taken place in ‘non-traditional’ M&A markets, i.e. excluding North America, Western Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Japan (Exhibit 1 ) , 2017 was also at 38 %. This steady level of activity follows an increasing proportion of global gross do mestic product (GDP) for these ‘non-traditional’ markets in the same period , currently 64 % according to the IMF's 'World Economic Outlook Database’. The development of more robust rules and regulations, despite the unstable politic s around the world and economic in stability in the developed markets, has encouraged the rapid growth of domestic and inter-regional M&A activity in many countries within these markets, along with cross-border deals between developed and emerging countries.
