M&A Deal Momentum: The influence of ESG on APAC dealmaking
About this talk
Please join us on Thursday, July 7th at 2:00pm Singapore time for this hour-long live webinar.
Some key points our expert panelists will address:
-Why should APAC acquirers and sellers care about ESG factors in dealmaking?
-What are the key ESG factors acquirers need to be aware of when executing deals?
-Precisely how are ESG factors impacting M&A in specific APAC countries and sectors?
-To what extent are ESG factors changing the nature of transactions in APAC?
-How are ESG considerations impacting due diligence in APAC?
-How is technology helping dealmakers navigate ESG requirements in M&A?
The importance of environmental, social, and governance factors in M&A has been rising across all markets globally during the past few years, boosted by the impact of the pandemic and war in Ukraine most recently. Yet, while ESG is seen as unilaterally important in dealmaking, the levels of importance and how that is demonstrated vary across regions. In some respects, Asia-Pacific dealmakers are leading their global peers.
Off the back of a record year for APAC M&A, we will take a deep dive into the fast-evolving and important area of ESG, analyzing the extent to which it is driving and transforming dealmaking in the region, which sectors are being impacted most, and what role technology is playing from diligence to execution.
