    China’s M&A Market Report Q2’21
    In Q2’21 as many countries were unlocked with the vaccine promotion, global financial markets began to have high liquidity, the interest rates in various countries remained stable, and the global stock markets rose. World economies have seen diverged trends depending on their recovery from the pandemic. China's economy in Q2’21 continued its strong recovery in the previous quarter, with a real GDP growth rate of 7.9%. In terms of trade, China's trade surplus in goods was 882.8 billion yuan, down 17.4% YoY. In addition, the yield of 10-year U.S. Treasury bonds was 1.5%, down 20bp from the end of last quarter. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) predicts that the economic growth of the U.S. will be as high as 7.0% in 2021, the highest in decades. At the exchange rate level, the US dollar continued to fluctuate within a narrow range, the Japanese yen continued to depreciate, and the RMB exchange rate was relatively stable. The exchange rates of emerging economies with high financial fragility, such as Argentina and Turkey, continued to depreciate, while those of BRICS countries generally appreciated. After the Federal Reserve's meeting on interest rates in June 2021, the yield of long-term U.S. treasury bonds showed a downward trend. If monetary policy easing began to tighten marginally, it would exert great pressure on the stock market's rebound. On the whole, the variants of Covid-19 pose a challenge to the global economic recovery.

    2021年第二季度,伴随着防控措施常态化以及疫苗接种推广,中国国内的疫情得到较为有效的控制,虽偶有地区性的零星爆发,但整体的经济运行保持了稳中有序的状态,使得中国并购市场的热度得以缓慢恢复。 在交易数量上,二季度相较于去年同期呈现出回稳上升的趋势,交易规模方面则有明显下降。2021年上半年中国并购市场共发生交易877笔,同比上升16.8%;共涉及交易金额3,364.73亿元,同比下降46.7%,同比出现显著下降的原因是2020年一季度恒丰银行的并购案例贡献了近千亿金额,拉高了当季并购的金额规模。二季度国内并购市场仍然以境内交易为主,跨境交易仍呈低迷状态。生物技术/医疗健康、机械制造和清洁技术为本季度并购 市场的热门领域。

    China’s M&A Market Report Q1’21Zero2IPO
    In Q1’21, with a variety of vaccines available on the market, the global economy has rebounded on an accelerated track after registering positive growth in the fourth quarter of 2020, but performance of different countries varies greatly. 2021 marks the start of China's 14th Five-Year Plan period and China's economy is enjoying a sustained and stable recovery. In Q1’20, China's GDP experienced negative growth, down by 6.8% YoY. In Q1’21, China's GDP increased significantly YoY and the trade surplus expanded. The 10-year U.S. Treasury bond yield increased by an average of 47bp compared with the previous quarter. The U.S. dollar depreciated first and then rose; the British pound was relatively stable, the Australian dollar depreciated slightly, and the euro and the yen depreciated by a large margin. The currency exchange rates of most emerging economies rose first and then fell, with little fluctuation over Q4’20. Capital flew back to the United States, and emerging economies were facing the challenge of capital outflow. U.S. stocks began to diverge with the Dow Jones Industrial Index continuing to rise and the Nasdaq Index beginning to go downward. In the latest issue of the World Economic Outlook Report, IMF’s projections for the global economic growth for 2021 and 2022 grew, which may cause widening gap in living standards among countries. China's GDP has returned to the pre-Covid level and the United States is expected to return to the level before the outbreak this year, but many emerging markets will not return to the pre-pandemic level until 2023. Overall, the global economy is projected to grow 6% in 2021 and 4.4% in 2022. While the global economy became stabilized, the recovery process is divided and uncertain.

    2020中国并购市场全年共发生并购事件1,893起,涉及总金额12,111.77亿元,分别同比上升3.3%、19.6%。尽管2020年是黑天鹅事件频发的一年,但也是中国资本市场改革的关键一年。伴随着上交所科创板注册制常态化运行、深交所创业板试点注册制稳步落地,企业上市的通道逐步放开,通过资本市场实现业务整合升级的能力也逐步增强。全球范围内量化宽松的大环境和国内资本市场的改革带来的上市公司资金充裕小环境互相叠加,为并购市场带来了充足的“干火药”,进而推动了并购市场交易规模的回暖。 并购市场的变化也体现在被并购的热门行业向科创领域的倾斜。以被并购方统计,全年数量前三位的行业分别为机械制造(216起,+36.7%)、IT(182起,+14.5%)以及生物技术/医疗健康(153起,-13.6%)。上述行业与近期多项政策所支持的科技创新领域具有高度重合性,体现出本轮并购热潮在定位上更加偏重于科创相关实体经济领域。 并购市场金额集中于金融、机械制造和能源及矿产三个一级行业。自2018年以来持续开展的金融风险控制与金融供给侧改革推动了相关机构与企业的重组进程,间接推高了2020年金融领域的并购额度。 地理分布方面,2020年并购市场的地域集中特征更为明显。前20位地区的案例数占总并购数量的比例为87.7%,较2019年上升2.3个百分点,前20位总金额占比为90.0%,上升2.6个百分点。 国内外并购市场呈现了冰火两重天的景象。跨国并购的两大分支——外资交易(外买内)和海外交易(内买外)分别受制于美国政府对华投资设限、“长臂管辖”制裁、并购审查趋严等逆全球化贸易政策而开展困难。
