Excerpt from 'M&A in the Middle East':
Fueled by tremendous growth potential and an increasingly progressive regulatory environment, the Middle East is fast becoming a hotbed of Mergers and Acquisition activity. Today, for example, the UAE is experiencing an upsurge in cross-border M&A activity. As a result, dealmakers throughout the Gulf Cooperation Council, including Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, and Kuwait, should be ready to strike while the proverbial iron is hot. As dealmakers survey the wealth of opportunities available in the region, they should be alert to certain trends, and risks, particular to the Middle East.
In this Article, Arti Sangar provides a brief overview of key issues relating to M&A opportunities in the Middle East. Arti alerts foreign investors looking to take equity stake in the Middle East to carefully consider the structure of a proposed deal from the outset, and to carry out a carefully planned, timed, and well-executed strategy.
