The Inmergers Joint Stock Company launched Inmergers, a platform on M&A, investment and legal consultation at a ceremony on July 1.

The platform provides businesses opportunities to connect M&A activities, transactions of property as well as franchising and distribution rights.

“M&A demand is huge in Viet Nam and in the world. Therefore, we decided to form an M&A start-up to support the process of finding favourable partners, saving time and money for businesses. Inmergers was the country’s first digital platform to connect international investors,” said Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao, founder and CEO of Inmergers.

The platform’s searching features, including an auto-matching feature, help businesses find partners easily and quickly. It also offers free discounted cash flow, a reliable business assessment tool to help sellers and buyers get useful information in the transaction decision process.

All information posted on the platform uses encryption algorithms, ensuring the security of all parties involved, saving businesses time and money while making M&A activities more efficient.

According to Euromonitor International, after a period of stagnation due to the COVID-19 pandemic, in Southeast Asia, M&A activity is forecast to skyrocket in 2021, surpassing the US and China - the two leading countries in terms of number volume of global M&A transactions (making up 38 per cent).

Countries such as the Philippines and Viet Nam are forecasted to have a fast growth rate of about 26 per cent, especially in the fields of communication, distribution network, retail and real estate.

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, there were an average of 5,000 successful M&A transactions each year with a total value of US$3.8 trillion. Although 2020 saw a decrease in the total value of up to 52 per cent of global M&A deals compared to 2019, M&A activity is forecasted to rebound by the end of 2021, according to the Institute for Mergers, Acquisitions and Alliances (IMAA). — VNS
