Will 2019 be a record year for Southeast Asia M&A?

Report summary

Southeast Asia M&A is off to a strong start in 2019. Announced deal spend has already hit US$2.76 billion this year, accounting for 77% of the global total ex-North America. In March, PTTEP purchased Murphy’s Malaysian assets for a cool US$2.1 billion – the largest deal in Southeast Asia for the past five years. Chevron's recent Anadarko acquisition could also spark further non-core divestments in the region. The Southeast Asia M&A high therefore seems likely to last into 2020 – or will it?
