Mergers & Acquisitions

DealGlobe has an integrated global team of 20+ investment banking professionals based in London and Shanghai who advise its clients on China cross-border M&A. Transaction types include public and private acquisitions, minority stake investments, divestitures, and joint-ventures.

On buy-side mandates for Chinese clients, DealGlobe’s advice allows its clients to compete effectively in cross-border M&A. Chinese companies face a unique set of challenges when conducting M&A internationally, both in terms of their actual ability to execute a deal and the sell-side’s perception of that ability. DealGlobe’s understanding of the Chinese business context, coupled with the global M&A experience of its London-based partners, enables DealGlobe to identify, communicate and in many cases directly address these challenges early in the process, maximising a Chinese bidder’s chances of success.

On sell-side mandates for Western clients, DealGlobe offers unparalleled access to credible Chinese investors and acquirers. DealGlobe can provide Western sellers of assets with a direct channel to decision makers at Chinese listed companies, privately owned businesses, and private equity and venture capital firms. DealGlobe can advise on the best way to present and market an investment opportunity to buyers in China through tailored Chinese-language materials, culturally sensitive presentations and targeted roadshows, to maximise interest from appropriate Chinese buyers.

Beyond this, DealGlobe also advises Western clients that wish to invest in China. DealGlobe can advise on China joint-venture partner selection, joint-venture structuring, and assessment of China investment opportunities.

Capital Raising

As well as M&A, DealGlobe’s integrated global team provides advice to clients on acquisition financing, strategic private placements, growth capital raising, and early-stage and seed-stage financing.

For Chinese clients, DealGlobe primarily advises on acquisition financing, including bank financing and private placements, both for Chinese corporates and private equity clients seeking to make acquisitions outside of China.

For Western clients, DealGlobe’s capital raising activities are focused on high-growth technology companies. For such companies, investment from a Chinese partner can bring not only capital, but also distribution into one of the world’s largest markets.
