Merger and acquisition (M&A) deals in Việt Nam’s real estate sector are forecast to increase in 2018, driven by the market’s significant potential, experts said.
Đặng Xuân Minh, general director of AVM Việt Nam & Vietnam M&A Forum, said the domestic property market was embarking on a second wave of M&A, after 2015, which would be fuelled by the hastened privatisation of State-owned enterprises and the increasing interests of foreign investors.
The M&A market was expected to touch US$8 billion this year, of which the value of property deals accounted for the largest part, Minh said, adding average value was some $50-60 million per deal.
M&A deals in the real estate sector were estimated at some $2 billion this year.
According to Phan Xuân Cần, chairman of property consultancy firm Sohovietnam, the announced M&A deals in the real estate sector were just the tip of the iceberg, and many deals were not disclosed.
Cần estimated that the value of M&A deals in the real estate sector which were announced  accounted for just 20-30 per cent of the real value.
In 2018, many mega deals were expected to take place, mainly in the segments of apartment, office, tourism property and urban land, Cần said.
According to Phạm Thanh Hưng, the rapid international integration of Việt Nam will have significant impact on the real estate market.
Hưng said the property market is attracting foreign investors, adding that there was an increasing wave of investment in Việt Nam’s property market from Japan, Korea, Singapore and China, as well as Germany and the United Kingdom, especially in the high-end segments.
Dương Thùy Dung, director of Research and Consulting, CBRE Vietnam, said M&A in the real estate market was also fuelled by the improvement in market transparency and simplification of procedures. The M&A trend would continue in the future and this would infuse fresh capital into the market, Dung said.
Statistics of which had an average 50 million page views per month, showed there were a large number of online searches related to Việt Nam’s property market in the apartment and villa segments in Hà Nội and HCM City from Singapore, the United States, Japan, South Korea and Australia. - VNS
