When the waves are turbulent, how stable is your boat? Because it may not be that easy to stay ahead of the curve in a VUCA (Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity & Ambiguity) world. And how is India’s corporate space contending with the broader and unpredictable forces that may be redefining the domestic and global landscapes? What does it take to adeptly manoeuvre through a whole lot of complexities? And amidst the VUCA, where do the opportunities lie to embrace change as the new constant? How are the interests of various stakeholders in India being balanced while strategic objectives are being met?

In the latest episode of CAM Radio – Clear Cut, our Partner (Head- M&A) Akila Agrawal has a multifaceted conversation with Pratibha Jain, Head of Strategy & Group General Counsel at Everstone Group, Nitin Sood, Chief Financial Officer at PVR INOX Limited, and Ashish Kumar, Chief Legal Counsel & Group Company Secretary at Dixon Technologies India Limited, to explore navigating M&A transactions in India in this VUCA world, making sense of the complex regulatory landscape, whether the complexity increases for large-scale mergers, the unique regulatory environment challenges for private equity investors, how without scale, one’s share of voice doesn’t exist, why persuasion should be favoured over adversarial tactics, when it comes to regulators, the benefits of greenfield expansions, whether it was a mistake to abolish the FIPB (Foreign Investment Promotion Board), augmenting India’s potential for M&A and more.
