M&As deal makers for Japan's ageing business owners

amazing. with the ageing population in Japan, maybe the consolidations and M&As will just increase?


Enter Nihon M&A Center Inc., a rare deal-advisory boutique in Japan, which introduced Takeuchi to a young company president on the other side of the country who wanted a foothold in the Tokyo software market. Months later, Takeuchi sold. It was just one of 110 deals Nihon M&A facilitated that year, a number that’s been increasing since it went public in 2006. Helping small-business owners find successors has sent its shares up almost 13-fold since listing.
