Grant Thornton has released its recent International Business Report (IBR) – “Mergers & acquisitions: The rise of the cross-border transaction”.

 The key highlights of the report are as below:

 • The global expectation that cross-border M&A will drive acquisitive growth has increased by 56% since 2008 and 18% in the last year alone.

• The results from India (59% increase) illustrate that the recent economic slowdown and political and economic issues still to be resolved appear to be impacting on where businesses seek acquisitions with a greater focus on overseas opportunities

• The results of the survey show that 28% of businesses across the globe expect to be participating in M&A activity in the next three years.

• 25% of Indian businesses plan to grow the acquisitive way in the next three years.

• When asked how they expect to finance their growth strategies, it is notable that bank finance slipped to 48% of respondents from 53% last year.
