This paper contrasts and compares the M&A activities involving Indian and Chinese firms in the technology sector. The empirical analysis covered more than 2400 M&A transactions that involved Indian and Chinese companies (i.e., either the acquirer or target is Indian or Chinese) that have taken place in past 11 years. Chi-Square tests are applied on the deal type to see how the deals vary between cross-border and domestic deals. It is found that the proportions of deal volume in inbound, outbound and domestic space do vary significantly between these two countries. It is also found that deal types of M&A transactions vary for inbound and domestic space but for the outbound deals, the acquirers from both the countries follow similar pattern. The results provide some unexplored insights to the fundamental patterns in the growing volume M&A transactions taking place in these two countries.
