The newspaper statistics describing the M&A activity in India speak of only large deals. For example, in year 2019, around 1000 main deals took place and the average value of of a deal was rupees 500 crore. In India there is no mechanism of maintaining database of merger and acquisition deals. SEBI maintains data of only M&A deals in the listed companies. CMIE maintains the data of M&A deals but it has many limitations.
There is no professional record of the mergers and acquisitions of the small and medium-sized companies with any authority. These deals are reported to the the Ministry of Corporate Affairs but they aren’t compiled into any useful database. It is only a matter of guess what would be the count of the deals and what would be their value.
Apohan considers any merger and acquisition deal where the net transaction consideration is more than rupees 100 crore as a large deal.
Apohan considers any merger and acquisition deal where the net transaction consideration is more than rupees 10 crore and less than rupees 100 crore as a small deal.
