(1888 PressRelease) The Tokyo based financial services company, Axia Consultants, has announced its intention to drastically increase the size of its mergers and acquisitions department to cope with rapidly rising demand from both domestic and international corporate clients.
From the beginning of 2013, the Asia-Pacific region has been subject to a pronounced upswing in the number of corporate mergers and acquisitions being conducted by businesses across the region. The driving force behind this increased activity is for the most part as varied as the individual countries that make up the region, with close geographic neighbors Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore and China seeing this trend for almost completely opposite reasons.
“We have since our inception offered our corporate clientele a broad range of services, including strategic corporate restructuring management, as well as the full range of mergers and acquisitions facilities. Over the last 24 months we as well as most of our peers in Tokyo have seen steadily increasing demand for these services, so we are expanding in response. We will, as required, make additional upgrades should the need be merited,” remarked Business Development Officer for Axia Consultants Mr. Hideo Oshogi.
Within the Asia-Pacific region, it has been China and Japan where the increased demand for M&A arrangements has been the most strongly observed. Japan’s increased demand being underscored by domestic business looking to expand their markets primarily into the U.S and Europe, with the recent Suntory and Softbank deals being the standout examples of this. Nearby, China however, has been the opposite, with foreign concerns rushing to avail themselves of market share in its booming economy by merging primarily with similar business model companies already trading in the P.R.C.
“Our location in Tokyo has seen Axia Consultants ideally placed to capitalize in both facets of this growing demand, domestic companies looking for expansion overseas and international desire to establish a business presence within China. We feel that our recent expansion to cater to this demand is a sound move, with this demand not being forecast to slow at all through this year and the next,” detailed Mr. Hideo Oshogi of Axia Consultants.
