Due Diligence & Post
Engaging EM Capital Management (Hong Kong) Limited to lead or partner with your DD team reduces the risks of poor and ineffective due diligence. Effective due diligence related to investing in China is without question the most challenging piece of the investing process. Inadequate pre-investment due diligence is the primary reason that many China cross-border investments fail. Too often, Western investors are simply reticent, worried about offending their local partner to perform the level of due diligence investigation necessary to prevent a failed deal and/or fraud.
China due diligence must go much deeper than financial and IP data. Understanding the background and history of counter-parties, affiliates and influencers is crucial. Post-closing monitoring provides early detection of business problems or suspected fraud, and the opportunity to react prior to the situation becoming an exigency.
The EM Capital team understands the opaque and complex China information environment and has the local market resources to provide our partners and clients with deep, discreet, factual and insightful pre and post investment due diligence and on-going monitoring. Contact us today to discuss your due diligence requirements.
