Dear AMCHAM Members,

Since the revision of “Indirect Investment Trust Asset Management Act” in December 2004, Private Equity Funds have played a major role in the Korean M&A market. In 2016, Private Equity Funds have spent around KRW 4.6 trillion, or about 25% of the entire spent for the year, to acquire companies. Today, many companies are going through generational changes in ownership. This coupled with the society’s demand for separation of ownership and management will lead to more M&A opportunities in the near future. We would like to take this opportunity to share some food for thought which may help you set your M&A strategies.
