M&A and Divestitures

Investment in China is regulated and investment categories are detailed within an investment catalogue that outlines investment types as Encouraged, Permitted, and Restricted. Depending on the investment sector and the foreign investor’s strategy, mergers and acquisition have become popular ways to begin operation in China.

LehmanBush provides advisory services beginning from project creation and development through to project close. Whether you are looking for a China partner or you need leverage and know-how to wade through business negotiations, the LehmanBush team is fully committed to providing integrated solutions for your management team.

LehmanBush can locate, assist in negotiation, perform due diligence and manage the overall process.

Finding the right partner or company to acquire is difficult enough in most market places, let alone one as large as China. LehmanBush has many years experience it can use to find the best fit for a business.

Whether your company is looking at acquisition targets, forming joint venture alliances or looking to non-core business operations, LehmanBush has the expertise to guide your project from conception to execution.

Treasury Management

Corporate treasury management in China is complex but since the country’s WTO accession, companies are gradually starting to benefit from slow improvements in the system.

LehmanBush is able to assist companies in setting up efficient strategies for overcoming the many regulations and laws that hinder the smooth running of treasury operations in China. Since efficient treasury management also encompasses banking relationships, LehmanBush can advise foreign companies on how recent reform to the country’s banking system alters the way companies in China should approach their treasury operations.

China’s dynamic and rapidly developing business environment requires careful management. Currency risk currently represents a considerable threat to foreign companies operating in China since the RMB is non-convertible on the capital account. LehmanBush recognizes that managing any such potential risks is essential in order to minimize future cash flow problems and provide for careful financial planning and forecasting.

LehmanBush can assist you in assessing existing financial risks and the most appropriate treasury management strategy in order to face such risks head on, while still adapting to your individual business needs.

Risk management

Businesses operating in China’s developing regulatory and legal environment are subject to a wide range of risks. LehmanBush understands that unexpected losses to your company can be avoided through a greater understanding of all those risks.

It is important for foreign companies in China to identify those risks that offer the biggest threat and implement a system of tracking them. China’s recent liberalization of the capital account and foreign exchange policies has meant that new methodologies have become relevant to financial risk management strategies.

LehmanBush will work with you to evaluate the probability of risks occurring and the impact that they may have on your organization. Our staff are well experienced in evaluating the most appropriate methods for controlling and assessing them. We will help you to investigate the strategies already in place before suggesting any additional or alternative methods that might be relevant for your company.

Market Growth Strategy

China is a rapidly changing market place. LehmanBush can assist companies in their growth strategy through assisting companies in choosing the right strategies with the best probability of success within a changing market place.

An essential aspect of this process includes setting high-level direction and then defining and filtering measurable milestones throughout the entire organization.

LehmanBush has years of success helping firms set effective strategies for the China market. With our ability to provide both industry foresight and a close ear to changing regulations, LehmanBush is well positioned to help your China operation move in the right direction at the right time.

Growth also means allocating limited resources to projects in order to achieve the required growth rates.

Clients need to be able to tie their objectives to their vision and determine measureables. However, being able to climb above the day to day in order to see the bigger picture and assess future prospects is not easy. It also takes time.

LehmanBush can provide the bigger picture and assist companies in establishing their strategic plan and direct valuable resources in the right direction.

Business Due Diligence

LehmanBush provides business due diligence services for potential acquisitions or a Head-Quarter requiring a review of an existing operation.

At LehmanBush we believe that a company’s true business position is not simply represented by historical financial statements.

Instead, we view companies in their entirety, including future financial projections, comprehensive SWOT analysis and non-financial factors such as, corporate culture, management ability and internal processes.

We also review future projections and the realism of these, ways of enhancing revenue, reducing costs and improving asset utilization. In this way risks can be found before it is too late, and solutions put in place and purchase prices balanced.

Through our affiliated law firm, we are also able to provide comprehensive legal due diligence and, thereby, provide an end-to-end corporate evaluation.
