M&A transaction services
China has become the largest auto market. Compared with the auto giants in US and 12 auto makers in Japan, Chinese auto industry is highly fragmented: there are still more than one thousand registered auto producers, of which fewer than 100 sold more than 10,000 vehicles. Undoubtedly, increased consolidation will be the trend, driven by market competition and government maneuvering together.
Other than the domestic industry consolidation, top auto companies are also actively seeking overseas opportunities with a view to acquire advanced technology or expand market, and finally become major global players.
However, all transactions- whether mergers, acquisitions, equity investment or divestitures- are full of complex financial, tax and business issues that require dedicated expert attention. When those deals cross international borders, or involve companies with global operations, wading through the additional range of considerations is even more daunting. The companies have to deal with considerable areas of uncertainties, while not all companies are specialized in these regards.
