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.
