According to a Thomson Reuters’ research report last month,Mexico has now replaced Brazil as the top M&A Market in the Americas and surpassed 15 other M&A markets worldwide including the U.S.,Switzerland,Indian,China,Spain and Australia in the first half of 2010.
Mexico announced their M&A values jumped incredibly from $1.2 billion in 2009 to $47.1 billion thus far this year. This rise represents a dethroning of Brazil as Latin America’s top M&A market and positions Mexico as a leading player in the Merger’s marketplace worldwide.
For those who have not noticed,Mexico has posted stunning business statistics so far this year,with a growth rate out of the recession of 4.5% (faster than U.S.),the lowest business taxes in the world,double-digit bank loan growth and the Mexico real estate market being one of the fastest growing in the world,Mexico is indeed surging.
In fact,Mexico is currently leading the U.S.,Canada and Europe in most economic sectors,clearly making this emerging Latin American market the one to watch in 2010.
