China’s M&A value rebounds 148% in Q2

CHINA’S outbound mergers and acquisitions rebounded in the second quarter of this year with deal value surging 148 percent quarter on quarter, according to an industrial report.

Chinese investors returned to the deal table in the April-June period after a lukewarm first quarter and were the second most acquisitive cross-border nation by value with 94 deals totaling US$35.9 billion, according to international law firm Baker McKenzie’s Cross-Border M&A Index.

The industrial sector continues to outrank other sectors in terms of China outbound M&A deal volume while the consumer and technology sectors also saw significant amounts of outbound investment from the country, the report showed.

China’s inbound M&A activities continued to climb, rising 29 percent in volume to 62 deals and a 69-percent jump in value to US$13.2 billion from the first quarter of 2017.

A significant portion, 66 percent, of the inbound investment value this quarter went to the technology sector, particularly the e-commerce and software companies, the report said.

“It is no surprise that the technology sector is attracting a significant portion of the inbound investment. China is already home to a number of leading global digital and Internet companies. It is likely that it will continue to attract investment and know-how to further develop its high-tech industries,” said Tracy Wut, M&A partner at Baker McKenzie’s Hong Kong office.
