Merger mania in China

Foreign investment, which has played a significant role in sustaining the rapid growth of the Chinese economy, has acquired a new form, that of mergers and acquisitions (M&As). As China has become more conscious about the quality of its foreign investments, rather their quantity, foreign companies have also made adjustment in their mode of entry into this market, with more and more tilting toward M&As. Foreign PE inked 129 deals in China last year, with a total investment of US$12.9bil, according to industry consultancy Zero2IPO.
