Buying in - Mergers and acquisitions

CBesides setting up a new enterprise, there are other ways you can establish or expand your presence in China. Merger and acquisition (M&A) is one of them. In fact, China now accounts for more than 30% of all the M&A activity now taking place in the Asia/Pacific region.

Taking over an existing Chinese entity could turn out to be a triumph or a disaster. Everything hinges on whether you choose the right target and go about it in the right way.

We will help you to consider and make such a move by:
  • Conducting full legal due diligence on your potential acquisition target
  • Negotiating tentative acquisition terms with China-based vendors
  • Dealing with the regulatory aspects of asset and equity acquisitions, approval and registration procedures and compliance with anti-trust laws
  • Negotiating and drafting relevant documents, including letters of intent, business transfer agreements, joint-venture contracts and articles of association
  • Dealing with creditors and debtors
  • Ensuring the smooth transfer of employees and other assets to the new entity
  • Satisfying financing, capitalisation and valuation requirements
  • Handling mergers between foreign-invested enterprises
  • Obtaining the approval of government and registration authorities
