During the last years, Chinese government adhered to the principles of encouragement and support for foreign companies investing in Chinese Mainland by Merger & Acquisition (M&A). The National Development and Reform Commission, Ministry of Commerce, etc., simplified the management procedures for foreign capital M&A transactions accordingly.

For many European companies, it always remains as an option for the purpose of restructuring or expansion to acquire Chinese small and medium enterprises (SMEs). However, before the initiation of an M&A transaction in China, have you clarified the following questions:

  • What is the most appropriate deal structure?
  • How to choose applicable law/jurisdiction?
  • How to manage and protect IPs during and after the acquisition of the Chinese SME?
  • What are the crucial aspects of the financial due diligence of the Chinese SME?
  • What should be my negotiation strategy against a Chinese SME?
  • What are the major differences between a Chinese SME target and a European target?
