Frank Aquila discussed the rising trend of Japanese companies making deals overseas with MarketWatch, in the article “Japan Inc heads abroad in $180bn deal rush,” published on December 19. The article discusses the impact Japan's aging workforce has on the country's economic growth. “Corporate Japan is focused on buying quality assets and that means pursing them vigorously and paying higher premiums for them,” Frank said, in discussing Japan's increased offshore M&A activity. “This is a long-term trend and we will continue to see Japanese firms engage in this level of activity for a while.”
