We are pleased to present Nexdigm Investment Chronicle – our periodic update that focuses on the deal-making landscape in India, comprising Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A), equity investments, and exits. In this report, we look at India’s transactions arena in the first half of 2020.
With India determined to become a ‘self reliant’ country, the government has curbed corporate tax rates and assured further changes in the ‘Make in India’ initiative, to emerge as a favorable investment destination compared to its South Asian peers. This coupled with companies exploring restructuring of businesses and supply chain due to change in geoeconomic dynamics, is expected to encourage transaction opportunities in the approaching years. While deal activity could be subdued in the coming quarters on account of challenges in execution and economic slowdown, the India growth story may remain attractive for investors with a long term horizon.
