Despite comparatively sluggish M&A trend observed in India during 2011 due to the absence of mega transactions, experts expect a boost in restructuring transactions in 2012 spurred by reduced inflation and lowered interest rates in the country. Indian promoters are patiently adopting the “wait and watch” approach to strategic M&A decisions hoping the market to stabilize and fetch better valuation.
In June 2011, with an aim of meeting the international standards, the Competition Commission of India (CCI) has enforced a regulatory framework relating to Mergers and Amalgamations, by requiring transactions over and above a specified limit to obtain approval from the Commission. Similarly, in October 2011, Securities Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has also amended its Takeover Code and increased the open offer size from 15% to 26% and abolished non-compete fee opening the market for bigger M&A transactions.
