Over the last couple years, Chinese inbound M&A has been one of the fastest growing segments of the U.S. M&A market. Chinese buyers have been eager to move capital into the U.S., and U.S. sellers have been equally eager to get a rich valuation from an overseas buyer. However, the market has undergone an abrupt shift since the U.S. elections. Since Election Day on November 8, 2016, there have been no Chinese inbound deals above $1b, while activity in the sub-$1b range has continued ascending to new records. While the market remains open to middle-market deals, advisors that can help smaller companies find Chinese buyers should enjoy a strong competitive advantage.
