Abstract

Since 2008, Japan's economy has been faltering due to an aging population, deflation, weak consumer spending, and low investor confidence. These factors have had some impact on Japanese mergers and acquisitions (M&As) in recent years. In this article, the authors provide an overview of Japan's M&A for the decade from 2000 to 2010, and also review recent M&A trends for 2011 and 2012. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
