This report provides an overview of Chinese A-share listed companies’ outbound M&A activity in 2016. It finds that after increasing steadily over the past decade, the number of outbound M&A transactions undertaken by Chinese companies surged in 2015 and 2016.
Against the background of a dynamic capital market, Chinese A-share listed companies have improved innovation, expanded their markets and are realising their global strategies by undertaking M&A activities. These activities can bring significant business opportunities to both Chinese and overseas enterprises and their investors.
This report also highlights several issues related to outbound M&A that need to be considered, including certain financial reporting requirements and the global implementation of the OECD’s base erosion and profit shifting measures.
