Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (01 May 2023)

Shunsaku Sagami, the founder and CEO of M&A Research Institute Holdings, has joined the ranks of Japan’s elite billionaires. The 32-year-old entrepreneur’s stake in the company has soared to over $1 billion, following a remarkable 340% increase in share value since the company’s listing last June.

M&A Research Institute Holdings is a mergers and acquisitions brokerage that specializes in small and medium-sized firms. The company leverages artificial intelligence to match potential buyers with businesses that are profitable but facing closure due to aging owners who cannot find successors. By closing deals rapidly – taking just over six months on average – the company has distinguished itself from industry peers that require a year to complete similar transactions.

The firm concluded 33 transactions in the quarter ending December 2022, according to the latest earnings report. An additional 426 deals are presently in progress, demonstrating the company’s expertise in mergers and acquisitions. Sagami’s visionary leadership has propelled the company to dizzying heights, affirming his place as one of Japan’s brightest entrepreneurial minds.
