Chinese companies are emerging players in U.S. corporate transactions and present significant opportunities to U.S. companies as potential buyers, investors and joint venture partners. This article examines the growing trend of Chinese outbound transactions in the U.S. and factors that have facilitated and will continue to spur these deals, including strong support from the Chinese government. The article discusses particulars of the deal process itself, and how U.S. companies seeking capital, a joint venture partner or a buyer can benefit from the participation of a Chinese counterparty in such transactions.
