Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to illustrate the emergence of giant global organisations in India and how the forces of globalisation have changed the merger and acquisitions activities of Indian companies. We examine the changes in government policy, their impacts on FDI, and the most significant mergers and acquisitions by top companies. This leads to a consideration of the strategies and the identified new approach to mergers and acquisitions of these new global players. The approach of the Indian corporate for acquiring companies abroad is different from a traditional approach in which the main focus was cost reduction, operational synergies, and short term goals. More recent Indian acquisitions reflect a strategic and long term focus. Their aim is to obtain new technologies, brands, and consumers in foreign countries. There is little literature on the phenomenon of the emergence of giant corporate in India and areas for further research are identified.
