Mergers and acquisitions (M&As), which stands at the top-end of the deal activity food chain, is a barometer of many corporate trends such as ambition, scale, size, consolidation, geographic reach, market access, capital-raising, foreign direct investment and so on.

India Inc. clearly seems on a comeback trail if deal data is in an indicator. According to VCCedge data, there have been 576 deals valued at $47 billion in 2010 (till October) so far, three times the value in 2009, posting its best performance in the last four years. Besides, there are still two months to go this calendar.

In keeping with this dominant trend in the global and Indian market place, VCCircle has put together a pioneering forum, VCCircle Dealmakers’ Conclave 2011, that will shed light on latest trends, outlook for 2011, M&A strategies, big-ticket to mid-market deals and IPO rebound.

Some of the questions the summit will seek to answer: When are you ready for the bulge-bracket acquisition? How to tackle cross-border regulatory, human capital and cultural differences? How is restructuring and unlocking assets by India Inc triggering M&A activity? Leveraged buyouts/management buyouts: Are they on the rise and why? How do you compete with strategic investors who offer a greater premium? How critical is role of M&A for PE exits? How do you maneuver it? Are mid-market deals really the sweet-spot of India’s M&A story? After touching a five year low in 2009, is Indian IPO market on a rebound?

VCCircle has hand-picked the industry’s best practitioners, CEOs and ecosystem players to conjure up insights, live experiences and workable solutions.
