Abstract: Swiss corporations with a global footprint have completed an astonishing number of M&A mega-transactions across all industries over the last five years. Holcim and Lafarge merged in 2014 to become the world's largest cement manufacturer. In 2016, the Chinese company ChemChina bought Syngenta for CHF 44 billion. Sabic acquired a majority stake in Clariant. Novartis listed its ophthalmology division Alcon on the stock market. NestlĂ© sold its CHF 10 billion skincare business to a consortium of buyers led by EQT, and in turn bought the worldwide distribution rights for coffee from Starbucks as well as a number of health food companies. More recently, ABB sold the power grid business to Hitachi and will now focus on robotics.
