China Makes Foreign M&A Difficult
China has many policies concerning M&A and they have no qualms about it. The government routinely involves itself in M&A activity dealing with foreign investors and has shut down several possible acquisitions including a multi-million dollar deal concerning Coca-Cola. The Chinese government states that they are trying to prevent certain companies from maximizing their benefits within the nation and in turn protect their citizens. I think this is perfectly legitimate reasoning but it is a shame that the government is limiting M&A potential.
