Private Equity Funds Seminar

8 October 2019, Hong Kong
22 October 2019, Shanghai
31 October 2019, Beijing

By invitation only


Opportunities in China special situations and distressed assets have become popular again and we have seen USD investors pursuing Chinese assets in different ways. We will share our observations on the opportunity set available for investors, our experiences from onshore restructurings and post-deal servicing of non performing loan assets. We will also cover the different investment structures being used to deploy capital into different assets, together with key tax and cash flow consideration.

Dealmakers, including PE funds are under increasing pressure to deliver more value from each deal they do. To make the task harder, turbulence in global stock markets, ongoing US-China trade negotiations amongst other global events are creating uncertainties around valuations while companies are wrestling with challenges such as keeping up with technological change or moving at speed into new and untested markets. Amid these macro-shifts in the deals environment, creating lasting value in deals has never been more important for investors.  We recently worked in conjunction with Mergermarket and Cass Business School to deliver a large-scale study on where and how M&A can be used to maximise value. In this seminar we would like to share with you the insights we gathered from speaking with 600 corporate executives globally, uncovering their learnings, understanding what makes deals successful and providing you with a blueprint for your next deal.

The State Council issued an Overall Plan for the New Lingang Area of the China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone on August 6.  According to the Plan, the New Lingang Area will match the standard of the most competitive free trade zones globally to facilitate foreign investments and capital flows, as well as the free flow of goods, transportation, employment and information which will build the New Lingang Area into a special economic function zone with influence and competitiveness in the global market to spearhead a new round of reform and opening-up in the Yangtze River Delta.  We will share with you the various innovative policies including preferential tax treatments that will bring opportunities to business. In addition, we will also introduce the tax policies in the Greater Bay Area.  

We will introduce the latest development and share some recent observations with you:

  • Investing in China special situations and distressed assets: key observations on the opportunity set, investment structures and tax and cash flow considerations
  • How M&A can be used to maximise value
  • Latest development and tax policies in the Shanghai Lingang Free Trade Zone & Greater Bay Area
