Unlocking value with strategic corporate divestments in China

Jeffrey Wang, Anthony Siu, Jason Song

In recent years, moderating GDP growth, fierce competition from local players, rising geopolitical tensions, major regulatory changes, and management constraints stemming from the COVID pandemic have led many MNCs to consider taking a step back from China.

Since 2017, multinational corporations (“MNCs”) have realized nearly US$100bn from divestitures of PRC-based assets, with ~90% of transactions concluded with Chinese buyers. Today, the appetite of PRC corporates/sponsors for quality China operations is at an all-time high, and a well-run process can deliver strong returns for an asset with diminishing strategic value. 

In our latest Insights, Unlocking Value with Strategic Corporate Divestments in China, we examine the recent expansion of MNC divestments in the PRC and discuss how on-the-ground insights and careful process management can optimize value in such a situation.
