Allen & Overy tops Asia Pacific M&A league tables for 2013 at Q3
Allen & Overy has topped the Asia Pacific (excluding Japan) M&A league tables for 2013 at the third quarter (Q3), by value, as reported by Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters.
This follows particularly strong results for the firm in the 2011 and 2012 Asia Pacific (excluding Japan) tables (full year by value) where the firm was ranked number one and number two, respectively, by Mergermarket.
One of the recent mergers and acquisitions (M&A) deals on which the firm acted across the Asia Pacific region was advising the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ on its voluntary tender offer for the Bank of Ayudhya Public Company (Krungsri), a major commercial bank listed on the Thai Stock Exchange. The deal is valued at up to $5.75bn (£3.6bn), which will make it the largest acquisition in Asia to date by a Japanese bank.
