Window of Opportunity for Chinese Investors

by swisscham in Consulting, Legal, Services, Tax

Chinese investors have a window of opportunity to take advantage of lower asset valuations and subdued M&A appetite in the global mining and metals sector to secure assets and meet the 13th Five Year Plan objectives, according to EY Global Mining & Metals Leader Mike Elliott. Elliott says that while China has been the leading buyer of mining and metals assets globally for the first nine months of 2013 with 8% of all deals by value, investors will face increasing competition from global private capital investors.”Larger global mining companies are focused on greater capital management and have more assets for sale that at any other time than in the past decade. At the same time, small and medium sized miners are being starved of capital and need to sell assets or find new partners who bring capital. There is a window of opportunity for Chinese investors with an eye to the longer term to take advantage of the large number of assets available – this is unlikely to be repeated for some time.”
