China’s Hollywood invasion, seems to have finally run into an obstacle it can’t get past: the country’s own regulators.

New restrictions on cash leaving the country have put a major wrench in cross-border deals with Paramount, Legendary and Dick Clark Productions.

Chinese copper company Anhui Xinke New Material’s planned $350 million purchase of Voltage Pictures was called off in December.

Canada approves sale of retirement home chains to Cedar Tree Investment (Anbang)
The Trudeau government has green-lighted the sale of one of British Columbia’s biggest retirement home chains to a Beijing-based insurance titan with a murky ownership structure in a deal that gives China a foothold in Canada’s health-care sector.

 

On paper, a majority stake in Vancouver-based Retirement Concepts – believed to exceed $1-billion in value – is being sold to a Chinese-owned company called Cedar Tree Investment Canada. However, Cedar Tree is the company that China’s Anbang Insurance is using to make the acquisition.

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 ...

Dealmakers Battle for Chance to Run World's Biggest Chemical Company
It’s a battle of two great deal makers and the prize is potentially the chance to run the world’s largest chemical company.

 

On one side is Sinochem Group boss "Frank" Ning Gaoning, who is said to be in talks for a second major deal with global commodities trader Noble Group Ltd. 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.

China's Sinochem in early talks to buy stake in Noble Group
China's state-owned Sinochem is in early talks with Noble Group to buy an equity stake in the embattled trader, three sources familiar with the matter said, in a move that would help it gain access to the commodity trader's global supply chain.


Noble Group Ltd. surged the most in over a year after it said it’s in discussions with a strategic investor. Noble rose as much as 17 percent in Singapore, its biggest gain since October 2015.
