Foreign Direct Investment: A Key Driver for Transactions in Asia-Pacific:

- Asia-Pacific (APAC) FDI inflows accounted for one-third of global FDI inflows, showing that the region is a potential hotspot for foreign investments.
- China was the world’s second-largest destination and source of FDI in 2014.
- The share of APAC in global mergers and acquisitions (M&As) was pegged at about %, a significant improvement from less than % in 2000, signalling positive investor sentiments in the region.

The following Trends Defined the APAC Scenario:

- There was a steady reduction in deals greater than $ billion.
- Initial public offering (IPO) markets slowed down in the wake of global uncertainties, leading to a lull in companies going public.
- Dry powder available with private equity investors (PEs) was at a never-before high, resulting in reduced off-take of fresh funds and cautious investor sentiment.
- Most investors adopted a wait-and-watch approach to see how their investment yielded returns, especially those that invested with a -year horizon before the recession.
- China and India emerged as key markets, characterized by both M&As and better IPO than their APAC peers.
