China Outbound M&A Report
By PAUL HASTINGS & MERGERMARKET
Chinese outbound M&A has continued amid market volatility as domestic companies expand abroad in search of resources, new markets, and technology. For many, this time of economic uncertainty has presented a rare opportunity to make acquisitions or build market share in regions they had long targeted. China Outbound M&A Outlook, published by Paul Hastings and Mergermarket, explores these market trends and highlights significant challenges and opportunities faced by Chinese companies as they go outbound.
Through a survey of M&A practitioners based in Greater China, the report explores how Chinese companies are being encouraged to venture abroad, how they can adapt to mitigate political, regulatory, and financial challenges, and how they can continue to derive value from cross-border acquisitions.
The report also includes insights from our partners on outbound real estate investment, M&A financing, and IP and technology transfer, as well as a case study on Shuanghui’s recent successful acquisition of Smithfield Foods – the largest acquisition of a U.S. company by a Chinese company to date.
