China's rise as the most important global M & A market and the almost dramatic increase of Chinese outbound M & A activities signals a sea change of opportunities and pitfalls. As witnessed by the landmark deal between Lenovo and computer giant IBM in 2005, M & A transactions are expected to gather pace as China prepares itself to become an economic superpower. While the central government has somewhat revamped opaque regulations, Mergers & Acquisitions in China: Law and Practice lends much needed clarity by providing a structured introduction to the legal aspects of China's M & A regime. Author Lutz-Christian Wolff of the Chinese University of Hong Kong discusses various aspects of M & A in their practical context, particularly drawing out hidden intricacies and how to deal with them from the viewpoint of foreign investors. The first comprehensive book on this topic Mergers & Acquisitions in China: Law and Practice tackles head-on topics such as due diligence, structuring options, M & A activity by diverse players in various targets, as well as anti-trust, tax and labour issues. Includes comprehensive references and bilingual versions of the most important M & A-related laws and regulations that will turn savvy foreign investors into more astute dealmakers.
