Message from the CEO
Welcome to Asian Mergers and Acquisition Links!
ASEAN is ranked as one of the top-class areas with remarkable economic growth and is a very popular investment destination. According to the World Bank's 2018 announcement, five countries are among the top 10 in the World Investment Attractiveness Ranking (https://www.businessinsider.jp/post-163245) , (1st Philippines, 2nd Indonesia, 4th Malaysia, 5th Singapore, 7th Thailand).
With economic development, many local companies are planning high-profit projects, and we expect foreign companies to obtain growth funds for that purpose. For this reason, many local companies have requested M & A advisory firms such as ours, which are characterized by cross-borders. There are also many needs for joint ventures that want to develop excellent technologies and services of companies in developed countries. Furthermore, as in Japan, many SME owners are worried about business succession issues, and are seeking solutions through M & A through our company.
Our Asian M & A Links (AMAL) has laid the foundation as a pioneer in the mediation and advisory business of M & A and joint ventures in ASEAN. Currently, we have about 100 staff and become the largest M & A advisory firm in the Philippines. Eight certified accountants and two lawyers work on the execution team, and once includes not only documentation on M & A such as stock price calculation materials and stock transfer contract preparation, but also advice on law, accounting, and taxation. We provide top solutions. We are also actively hiring staff who can speak foreign languages, and we are currently dealing with companies around the world with a team of 5 Japanese speakers, 3 Mandarin and 3 Cantonese. We currently have subsidiaries in Thailand, Vietnam, and Malaysia in addition to our head office in the Philippines. In the future, we plan to expand into Singapore and Indonesia, aiming to become the number one M & A advisory firm in ASEAN in both name and reality. And I strongly believe that this will help many Japanese companies to expand overseas.
We would like to continue to contribute to the development of Japanese companies through cross-border M & A. 2006-2007 M & A Capital Partners (currently listed on the First Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange) Executive Officer 2007-2014 M & A Corporate Advisory Director (founding member) 2015-Present Established Asian M & A Links Representative Director and CEO
