With the economic integration of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN Economic Community [AEC]), expected to begin at the end of 2015, addition of the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement (TPP), which is currently in the final adjustment stage, and implementation of further trade liberalization, deregulation, and improvement in distribution infrastructure throughout Asia, cross-border economic exchange is expected to accelerate. As with the European Union (EU), which overcame a variety of difficulties to establish its economic community, the birth of a new "One Asia" economic zone of Asian countries has become a real possibility in the medium term.
This will signal the end of an era in which companies grew independently and depended only on their domestic markets. A new era has arrived in which cross-border companies complement each other's strengths and business resources, while rapidly progressing to a stage of new growth. In Japan, many leading companies of all sizes are considering potential mergers and acquisitions (M&As) with other leading companies in Asia. In just one year since establishing our Cross Border M&A Division, we have supported over ten cross-border M&As, and the great potential of cross-border M&As that can complement trade areas, services, and technology has quickly been demonstrated.
Utilizing our strength as Japan's largest independent M&A specialized company, we have built Japan's largest M&A information network with approximately 300 financial institutions and 670 accounting firms, and have contributed to the succession and development of companies via more than 3,500 M&As since our founding. Now, we have entered a new stage in which we will expand this network from Japan to Asia. In preparation for the "One Asia" era, we plan to contribute to the survival and development of companies through M&A and to use that success to promote our nations' further economic development and friendship. We believe that such a big role is expected of us.
The company has a history of over twenty years as Japan's largest independent M&A firm.
