Being historically dependent on mining and manufacturing, Australia is now a diversified services provider with strong links to Asian and US markets.
M&A activity has increased in recent years with deal volume growing at a CAGR of 6.5% between FY12 and FY17, reflecting attractive fundamentals such as the availability of cheap debt, close proximity to Asia and the relatively weak AUD.
Switzerland-based corporates and financial investors have been investing in Australian companies for decades and the continent continues to offer attractive investment opportunities, fueled by trends such as the ongoing privatization of government assets or the country’s growing demand for healthcare services.
Australia has a unique set of regulations in place and commercial, taxation and accounting aspects need to be considered carefully. With first-hand experience and local teams on the ground, PwC can help you to avoid common pitfalls when doing deals in Australia.
