Meeting Venue This upcoming event in the 2016 speaker series of the WEF Global Shapers Oxford Hub takes place at: Seminar Room A, Said Business School Park End St, Oxford OX1 1HP, United Kingdom http://www.sbs.ox.ac.uk/ Meeting Agenda Friday 21 October 10:15 – 10:30 Please be seated by 10:30 10:30 – 11:00 Fireside chat with James Li 11:00 – 11:20 Q&A 11:20 – 11:30 Networking Context China’s record outbound investment has been steadily rising in recent years, with these figures only projected to continue growing, in the face of currency uncertainty and an economic slowdown. The first quarter of 2016 alone saw 115 outbound M&A deals, worth $82.6 billion, around double the figure for Q1 the prior year, according to a PwC China report. Over half of these deals were completed by the growing private company sector, though state-owned companies still accounted for over two-thirds of total value. Amidst dramatic growth in outbound deals fueled by a large and growing supply of investible capital in China, foreign inbound M&A has also grown, albeit at a more modest pace. For now, domestic deals still continue to make up the vast majority of M&A activities in China. We will explore these key trends and touch on the intricacies of the Chinese M&A context as it relates to initial market research, set-up procedures and regulatory hurdles, and due diligence considerations.
