Abstract

Changes to India’s laws governing Indian multinational corporations since the 1990s have had a significant impact on both the number and structure of cross-border acquisitions by Indian companies. This report discusses the legal reforms implemented by the government to help facilitate overseas acquisitions by Indian firms, the subsequent increase in outbound mergers and acquisitions, and the regulatory impediments that still exist to mergers and acquisitions by Indian firms.

Keywords: India, cross border mergers and acquisitions, takeovers, outbound acquisitions, Companies Act
