This article looks at Asia's leveraged buyouts and control-oriented investments. It describes buyout activity throughout Asia along with the governance mechanisms that are used to create value. It studies the institutional development of Asian LBO markets while referring to historical comparative studies. It then analyzes the financial returns to Asian LBOs and growth investments using data from returns to going-private transactions and realized private equity investments. This article concludes with evidence on governance and operational change in Asian LBOs and features a new data set that is composed of company-level data across all major Asian economies.
