M&A in China
Making decisions in a less than transparent deal environment
M&A activity in China has exploded in recent years as domestic and international players alike move to solidify their position in fast-growing markets. The rise in activity can be measured not just in the number of deals made but in their size, complexity and the range of industries involved.
But while M&A can offer a shortcut to establishing or expanding a footprint in China, risks abound at every stage of the deal. Even for firms with vast experience in overseas acquisitions, China presents a number of M&A challenges with the potential to derail even the most experienced deal teams.
"M&A in China: Making decisions in a less than transparent deal environment" is the first in a series addressing the challenges of M&A in China. Drawing on the first-hand experience and collective wisdom of our M&A practitioners closest to the action, this issue explores the most common deal-breakers and pricing issues in one of the most dynamic environments for M&A in the world today.
