Chinese M&A projects in Switzerland – How are they successfully completed?
Over the last decade, Chinese investors have gained extensive experience in the acquisition of Swiss companies. Major transactions such as the acquisition of Syngenta by ChemChina or the purchase of Swissport and Gategroup by HNA are well-known. In addition, there is a big number of small and mid-sized acquisitions of Swiss companies by Chinese buyers that have been successfully closed. On the other hand, many M&A projects initiated by Chinese investors have been aborted for various reasons. What are the reasons why Sino-Swiss M&A project succeed or fail, respectively? How can competent legal and corporate finance support increase the chance of the Chinese buyer to succeed in a Swiss M&A project? Discuss these and many other questions in a panel discussion with the experts Felix Egli and Lukas Züst of VISCHER AG – lawyers and notaries.
Innovation made by China – How Swiss companies can get inspired by the Chinese innovation ecosystem.
China has long been known as the workbench for the global economy. With the business model „80% of quality for 60% of price “Chinese companies have achieved a global market share of 40 percent or more in many industries. Part of Chinese business has been copying, imitating and adapting products, services and technologies of Western enterprises. Having matured as an economy, China needs to move up the value chain in order to sustain further growth. The Chinese economy is therefore currently changing from an investment and export driven to a consumption and innovation-oriented model. On company level, innovation becomes the key to succeed in an ever-increasing competitive environment. Currently, China has already achieved a high capacity level in customer and efficiency driven innovation. Innovative Chinese business models spread quickly, and will also impact Western companies and economies. The speech introduces the participants to the current status of Chinese innovation and shows how Swiss companies can make use of the Chinese business environment for their own R&D and innovation activities.
