Wanda's $1 Billion Bid for Dick Clark Said to Be Facing Hurdles
Dalian Wanda Group Co. is facing obstacles in its $1 billion bid to buy Golden Globe Awards producer Dick Clark Productions Inc. The Chinese conglomerate has had difficulties taking money out of China to pay for the deal. It would be premature to say that the deal has collapsed.

 

Wanda’s difficulties illustrate how Chinese companies are facing mounting regulatory scrutiny and hurdles obtaining offshore funding in their pursuit of assets abroad. In a similar example, Barrick Gold Corp.’s plan to sell its stake in an Australian mine to a Chinese bidder has stalled as the buyer ...

On the other is Ren Jianxin, chairman of China National Chemical Corp., or ChemChina, whose $43 billion offer to buy Swiss pesticides-and-seeds maker Syngenta AG is currently wending its way through official reviews.

TVB’s second-largest shareholder says it rejects buyback offer
The plan by Chinese media mogul Li Ruigang to tighten his grip on Hong Kong’s main free-to-air television broadcaster may be heading for a messy tussle, after TVB’s second-largest shareholder today declared its opposition to a HK$4.21 billion buyback proposal.

 

Silchester International Investors LLP, a London-based fund owning 14.1 per cent of Television Broadcasts Ltd, or TVB, said the January 24 buyback -- revised on February 13 -- was “essentially a disguised nil premium takeover attempt” by the controlling shareholder Young Lion Holdings, at a time when TVB and its share pr...

The value of capital projects and M&A deals in seven core infrastructure sectors across the 66 economies in the Belt and Road Initiative reached nearly $494 billion in 2016 and China contributed one-third of the total value in the period, according to PricewaterhouseCoopers.

EU capitals seek stronger right of veto on Chinese takeovers

Germany, France and Italy have called on Brussels to grant them a right of veto over Chinese high-tech takeovers, in a sign of the growing protectionist backlash against Chinese investment in Europe’s most sensitive industries.

 

Germany’s economics ministry said the three governments had written to Cecilia Malmström, EU trade commissioner, with the aim of opening up a debate on the issue. It said they wanted to create the legal basis for national governments to be able to “intervene in direct investments which are state-controlled”.
