Amarchand, D&D top M&A 2012 rankings, Luthra finds brief mention riding on $10.5bn Vedanta

Amarchand Mangaldas topped the 2012 mergers and acquisitions (M&A) India rankings released by data provider mergermarket, in terms of advising on the biggest value M&As in 2012. In terms of the total number of M&A deals advised on, Amarchand was runners up to third-time leader Desai & Diwanji.

Amarchand’s 39 M&As were worth $20bn while Desai & Diwanji’s 43 M&As were worth $1.4bn.

Amarchand was on most of the biggest Indian transactions of the year, although the $10.5bn Sterlite-Sesa Goa merger in February contributed significantly in its value-table victory, also clinching second-spot on that table for Luthra & Luthra which did not manage to feature in the volume rankings, with its 5 deals worth $10.4bn.

A detailed analysis of the mergermarket rankings and M&A activity will follow in Mint on Friday.
