2019 M&A Report: Vietnam

Posted on Mar 8, 2019 in M&A by


The Vietnamese market has been a dynamic M&A environment. We have also seen that inbound M&A activity is increasing in both deal volumes and deal values faster than domestic M&A. According to public data, by dollar value, inbound M&A occupied more than 75% of total deal value in 2017 and the first half of 2018. Inbound megadeals explain this shift in the balance, for example the investment by the Singapore sovereign wealth fund GIC in Vinhomes alone was $1.3 billion, while Warburg Pincus’s investment in Techcombank was $370 million. Real estate and financial services M&A activity has been most prominent in 2018.
