Rani Jarkas: China’s outbound M&As surge in both volume and value

Rani Jarkas: In the first half of 2016, the volume of cross-border mergers and acquisitions led by Chinese buyers reached $149.2 billion, exceeding the total volume in 2015. The amount accounted for 23 percent of the total volume of global cross-border M&A, up from 6 percent in the same period last year, according to Tian Guoli, chairman of Bank of China on at the Bank of ChinaBloomberg Global M&A Summit.

Smooth financing channels in capital markets and fast-growing financial investors are the main reasons for the significant increase in 2016.

Mature markets such as Europe and North America continued to be the main destinations for Chinese buyers of sophisticated technology, advanced management experience and well-known brands. Asia was also popular among investors because of the Belt and Road Initiative.

Also, for the first time, privately-owned enterprises surpassed state-owned enterprises in transaction value, accounting for half of the total over the first three quarters of 2016.

Rani Jarkas, Chairman of Cedrus Investments, a boutique investment firm with years of experience in Greater China region, said “The expansion from trade finance to acquisition finance will provide a strategic opportunity for development of the Chinese financial sector. It has accelerated the transformation of China’s financial industry.”
