It is often said that M&A deals and corporate restructuring deals make the best of uncertainty. That was evident in 2021. Despite tentative stock markets and fluid corporate functioning, the volume and value of merger and acquisitions were robust. For first half of calendar 2021, M&A deals were 44% higher at $49.34 billion.

Even if you look at the number of deals, they were 5% higher at 730 in H1-2021. In the overall M&A scene, cross border deals accounted for a third the number of deals and 44% of M&A deal value in the first half of calendar 2021. Globally, M&A deals in H1 were up a whopping 132% at $2.8 trillion, and India still lags the global sweepstakes.
