Anjarwalla & Khanna ranked among the top 20 in the 2017 Mergermarket preliminary M&A league tables


Anjarwalla & Khanna is delighted to announce that it has been ranked among the top 20 firms by deal volume in the 2017 Mergermarket League tables in the entire Middle East and Africa (MEA) region.

Nine of A&K’s deals with an approximate total value of USD 152 million were considered. The deals include the biggest M&A transactions that have happened in Kenya recently, among them Mauritian SBM Holdings’ acquisition of 100 percent shareholding in Kenya’s Fidelity Commercial Bank and Oman Trading International’s multi-jurisdictional proposed subscription and purchase of shares in Hass Petroleum DMCC.

The rankings are based on announced transactions (where the bidder, target or parent of either is from the country or region to which the table refers), worth over USD 5 million in the period from 1 January 2017 to 11 December 2017. The undisclosed deals are included where the target’s turnover exceeds USD 10 million. The rankings also include deals where the stake acquired is less than 30 percent if their value is greater than USD 100 million.
