ABSTRACT
The article reports that several companies in Japan have ventured in the U.S., Asia and Europe in search for desirable acquisitions. Japan is cited as an aggressive acquirer of Western assets. The primary factor influencing this trend was the expansion of the Japanese economy and stock market. According to a Recof database, the country's cross-border outbound deals increased by 26 percent in 2005 compared to 2004.
