Special edition of UNCTAD's Investment Policy Monitor focuses on the screening of cross-border M&As
18 juin 2013
UNCTAD finds that a considerable share of cross-border M&As have been withdrawn for regulatory or political reasons.

This special edition of the Investment Policy Monitor presents recent developments concerning the screening of cross-border M&As.

UNCTAD analyzed over 200 of the largest cross-border M&As (those with a transaction value of $500 million or more) that were withdrawn between 2008 and 2012.

In most cases M&A plans were aborted for business reasons, but a significant share was also withdrawn because of regulatory concerns, such as competition issues, economic benefit tests and national security screening, or political opposition.
