Due diligence issues in China

JOURNAL OF CORPORATE ACCOUNTING & FINANCE, Issue 2 2009
Jo Ann McGee
The People's Republic of China was identified as one of the most attractive locations for anticipated mergers and acquisitions (M&As) over the next 18 months. Unfortunately, it is also considered to be one of the riskiest locations for investment,partly due to the growth of white-collar crime (WCC). So any multinational firm planning M&A activities in China should include a search for WCC in their due diligence. However, conducting due diligence in China is very difficult. The authors take a critical look at these issues and detail the challenges that multinational firms will face. They also give some practical advice on how to handle those problems. 2009 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. [source]

The authors review WCC in China, including who is doing it, what the penalties are, and protective measures executives can take to avoid and prevent encounters with the Chinese versions of WCC. 2008 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
