When middle-market fund managers and investment bankers gather these days, the Big Topic is the burgeoning cross-border M&A scene in China, what the opportunities and risks are, and how successful deals are getting done.

With one of the fastest growing economies and many companies fast maturing into major players on the world stage, China can’t be ignored. Given the inefficiency of its capital markets, many Chinese companies are looking for foreign capital to fuel growth and make acquisitions inside the country and abroad.

But is China’s market mature enough for U.S. private equity investment? Is there a stampede among investors to get in on this “next big thing?” What are the benefits, and risks, to private equity funds?

In his Capital Roundtable presentation, Howard Jiang will address the following --

  • what is the landscape for middle-market investment in China, and how is it evolving?
  • who are major role models for you to study?
  • which industries & regions offer you the most opportunities & growth?
  • how can you successfully initiate, structure, & close deals?
  • what pitfalls have pioneer investors encountered, & how can you avoid them?
  • have other overseas firms already cherry-picked the best deals?
  • how can you find good deals, capable advisors, & manage from thousands of miles away?
  • what are the steps for getting your firm started doing buyouts or buyins in China?

Howard Jiang is a corporate partner in the New York City office of Baker & McKenzie, the world’s largest international law firm, where he specializes in M&A, fund investment, and securities work, with a special focus on China and Asia. He is also affiliated with the China Strategic Equity Fund, a Beijing-based $100-million private equity fund focusing on smaller middle-market acquisitions.
