[Shanghai] CBBC China Outbound Seminar: Best Practices and Case Studies of Cross Border Transactions Under the New Capital Control Policy



Chinese Outbound Investment slowed down in 2017 after the rapid rise in 2016. One of the reasons for this is that China has tightened administrative reviews for capital outflows, including outbound foreign direct investment (OFDI). The new policy has re-shaped the composition of deal flow for investors, industries and other entities.

This is a policy that is unlikely to be removed any time soon and poses challenges for Chinese investors involved in cross border M&A. However, the new regulations also make a strong case for Chinese companies to continue to look to overseas markets for leading technologies or brands. In the long term, the policy will make Chinese companies more cautious in overseas expansion, thus increasing the success rate. Are there any practical solutions to the challenges that this policy creates? What are the best practices from a legal and financing perspective? How does this change the funding of cross border M&A? This seminar will provide attendees with the opportunity to hear from a lawyer and banker who have hands-on experiences in cross-border transaction. They will shed light on this topic and share their experiences in case studies.
