A merger refers to acquisition of shares, business or other assets whether inside or outside Kenya resulting in change of control of a business, part of business or an asset of a business in Kenya in any manner and includes a takeover. In this context, the cardinal equation follows that one plus one is greater than two, the rationale being the advantages of pulling together will lead to value creation for all stakeholders
Some of the trends in the M&A market in Kenya suggest that deal volumes in the financial services sector have shown high growth in recent years. Noteworthy is the banking and insurance sectors in Kenya, which are likely to witness significant deal activity in the near future due to the revised regulatory capital requirement.
