With the "About Japan" webinars series, the EU Japan Centre provides practical information about Japan for the attention of EU companies targeting the Japanese market.

How can managers in European Small-and-Medium-sized Enterprises prepare for acquisition by a Japanese company?

In 2016, the total value of Japan-sourced acquisitions reached €86 billion, three times higher than the total value of domestic transactions within Japan. During this period, Japanese companies made 156 acquisitions in Europe: headline examples include Asahi Group Holdings investment of €7.3 billion towards acquiring brands such as Pilsner Urquell, Tyskie, Lech, Dreher, and Ursus. This flow and pattern of cross-border acquisitions sourced in Japan will probably increase, meaning that more European companies - including SMEs - will become targets. Consequently, managers in European companies are advised to take practical steps towards preparing for this eventuality as both a strategic necessity and an opportunity for organizational learning. 

The webinar is targeted to EU companies seeking to explore and arrange strategic alliances with Japanese companies through  acquisitions, mergers, joint ventures or other forms of strategic collaboration. This webinar should also interest managers of European companies preparing to invest in Japan: e.g. through exploring or developing positions in Japanese markets or supply chains.

Registration deadline: 11/09/2017
