Event Details

The Sino-foreign Equity Joint Ventures (EJV) is of the most common yet challenging form of investment vehicles that foreign investors can utilize when entering the China market, in terms of both business operation and corporate governance.

EJVs must comply with the Company Law after the EJV law was abolished on January 1st 2020. Compared to the previous EJV Law, the Company Law gives foreign investors more flexibility in terms of overall management. To maximize foreign shareholder preferential benefits, it has become more important than ever for foreign investors to retain control when it comes to intellectual property issues, exit mechanism, voting rights, share transfers, dividend distributions, etc.

In this webinar, Ines Liu, Dezan Shira & Associates International Business Advisory Manager, will be discussing the key risks and issues that Sino-foreign EJVs may encounter and introducing important preventive actions that companies can take as well as opportunities could be explored arising from restructuring and reinvestment in China. Since the current Foreign Investment Law (FIL) has a major impact on existing EJVs (as the organizational form and corporate structure under the previous regime are radically different from those set out under the Company Law), Ines will be highlighting the key areas of changes and implications at the end of her presentation.

Target Group: Executives and managers of EJVs, foreign investors who intent to do business in China as well as other interested company representatives.
