M&A in China

Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A)

Company acquisition allows quick market entry in and has become more common, in part facilitated by an increasingly reliable and predictable legal framework.

Foreign companies can acquire shares in state-owned Chinese companies, private companies and foreign-invested enterprises (“FIEs”), including joint ventures and wholly foreign-owned enterprises. Generally speaking, a distinction between an asset deal and a share deal is also made in China.

A competent risk analysis prior to a deal is an important element of a successful Transaction.
