How to Value your Acquisition Target in China? - Cancham Hong Kong May 25th 2011

How to Value your Acquisition Target in China? - Cancham Hong Kong May 25th 2011
How to Value your Acquisition Target in China? - Cancham Hong Kong May 25th 2011

Censere CEO, Brett Shadbolt, is invited at the Canadian Chamber of Hong Kong on May 25th 2011

In any acquisition or investment situation, determining the price to pay is critical to ensuring long-term success. Valuation shouldn't just mean determining “what it's worth to me” but should also consider what it's worth to the counter-party and other third parties who might have an interest in the deal | competitors, regulators, etc. Each of these will have different opinions of value - valuation should be a strategic focus in any transaction.Investing in emerging markets like China results in an additional set of challenges, beyond that experienced in developed markets. Depth and maturity of markets, transparency, regulatory constraints, cultural differences, accounting/tax policy differences - all of these influence valuation.
