Abstract: The aftermaths of the financial crisis led to a significant decline in international capital flows. Meanwhile, China was able to maintain a strong economic growth, becoming the second largest global investor by 2016. Since the recession, especially Chinese privatelyowned enterprises (POEs) were able to take advantage of new opportunities. This was in particular the case, as developed countries faced a massive lack of capital and prices for strategic assets were on a historical low. Those circumstances led to an intensification of cross-border mergers & acquisitions (M&A) conducted by Chinese POEs. This behavior is further encouraged by the Chinese government with its “Go Global” policy, generally facilitating cross-border M&A by financial aid and other various supportive instruments. Hence, internationalization of China’s POEs has recently attracted much attention within global media and politics. Therefore, this bachelor thesis examines how and why Chinese privately-owned enterprises engage in cross-border mergers & acquisitions. The thesis is especially aimed to identify preferred strategic assets, and acquisition processes in general. It is further aimed to recognize a tendency within the examined enterprises.
