Macroeconomic backdrop

Summary observations
 China continues to be an important market for German companies

-

Continued population growth
Attractive young demographic with lots of demands
Increasing urbanisation
Increasing per capita income and prosperity
Appetite for Western consumer brands and high tech products

 China is orienting towards the West

-

Still very much an agricultural society with relatively small but growing industrial and services sector
Improving productivity – but long way to go
Working on R&D and innovation – partial catch up but still major gaps

Combining China market demand with German market “supply” can be a powerful
investment thesis

Co-investments and exits

While still focused on Asian investments, in particular Chinese PE firms have
raised increasing fund sizes and are open to international investments
 US and European private equity funds have been investing in China for years and have dominated the
market
 However, local funds are catching up in number (c.130 local funds), size (raising single digit billions by
fund) and in competitiveness (international training, local knowledge and connections)
 The investment focus continues to be China or pan-Asia, however portfolio diversification and attractive
investment opportunities in the West are driving initial cross-border investments

 Investments tend to be out-right acquisitions, usually led by large, often state-owned Chinese corporates;

-

However, co-investments with Western players or minority stakes in corporates with the goal of
driving China market development for that company are common in PE

 The main deal rationales for such deals is the synergy value derived from

-

a valuable Western consumer proposition / brand
leading Western technology
Western market access
global competitive benefits from acquiring a leading Western player

Co-investments and exits

Only a couple of weeks ago, the 3rd plenary session of the CPC Central Committee
is seen to further open up the Chinese economy


The Third Plenum of each Central Committee is often the time for revealing massive changes in economic policy and the
launching of political reforms



There have been two particularly significant Third Plenums in the history of the People’s Republic of China:

-

the 1978 Third Plenum of the 11th Central Committee, held two years after the death of Chairman Mao Zedong, ended the
Cultural Revolution and launched the “reform and opening up of China” under Deng Xiaoping

-

and the 14th in 1993, held under Jiang Zemin, set the stage for China’s transition to a socialist market economy and led to
more aggressive economic reforms promoted by Zhu Rongji



President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang have presented a series of new policies intended to boost the China market



The eight key areas that the Plan especially addresses include:



cutting administrative approvals
promoting competition as well as free flow of international and domestic trade and investments
land reform
opening up banking including the liberalisation of interest rates and the exchange rate
reforming the fiscal system including setting up basic social security
reforming state-owned enterprises
promoting innovation including green technology
opening up the services sector

Within these, the Plan has identified three major breakthrough sectors:

-

lower market barriers to attract investors and boost competition
setting up a basic social security package
allowing collectively-owned land to be traded

Kion Group has attracted the largest direct Chinese company investment in
Germany to date


In August 2012, Weichai Power, a unit of China’s Shandong Heavy
Industry Group, completed a €738m investment in Kion, the
German forklift truck maker

-

€467m to acquire a 25% stake in Kion directly, and a further
€271m for a 70% stake in a Kion hydraulics subsidiary



The deal was touted as a way for Kion to build more access to the
Chinese market, c.25% of global demand for forklifts



In June 2013, Weichai Power acquired another 5% ahead of the
IPO at the end of June 2013

-

Financial and stock performance has steadily improved
primarily driven by demand from emerging countries

Co-investments and exits

In terms of exits to Chinese investors, Putzmeister has been the most sizeable
transaction to date


In January 2012, Putzmeister, a global manufacturer of
construction machinery based in Germany, was acquired by Sany
Heavy Industry, a China-based conglomerate



Sany Heavy Industry is owned by CITIC, a prominent Chinese
fund

The merger created one of the world’s largest construction
manufacturing companies
“… The deal could herald a new era of Chinese deal making in Europe as
Chinese companies look to “go global” and reduce their exposure to their
domestic economy …”
Financial Times, Jan 2012

Co-investments and exits

Despite often high strategic premium price offers and compelling strategic logic of
a deal, there are often material obstacles that need to be overcome
Challenges

Mitigating Factors


Intermediation and mutual education / communication



Clearer communication of key investment hypotheses
and involvement of target management / shareholder in
evaluation thereof

Rationale for China strategic premium not obvious
leading to distrust from sellers as to how real the bids
are



Expectations management on both sides



Early review and communication of potential issues



Deal approval risk





Political risk

In the short-term, focus on strategic cooperation with
little operational overlap; medium- to long-term
operational collaboration in areas where it makes sense



Doubts regarding access of bidder to finance and
confirmation of financing terms



Concern about capability of bidder to manage global
operations and retain core assets (Minority shareholders,
Management, staff, Brand)



China corporates and investors still primarily focused on
China and pan-Asia



lower levels of comfort and confidence in European
deal environment

CONFIDENTIAL
21
Summary observations
 China investors, both corporate and financial, will increasingly be looking at investment opportunities
beyond the domestic markets
 Of particular interest for Chinese investors are companies that

-

Are related to China focus industries
Bring a European brand to the Chinese consumer
Help develop Chinese corporates in their globalisation by bringing valuable technology and / or
brand to the table

 Of particular interest for Western / German investors are

-

Flexible strategic equity investment (minority / co-investment as well as lead investments) in
companies which are less interesting for European PE or strategies

-

China market access
Strategic partnership to defend and build global market position

 There are material challenges as with many cross-border deals, however these are often really dealdependent and over time they are on average likely to become less of an issue
Keep Chinese investors on the radar for both co-investment and exit strategies

  • 15. Co-investments and exits While still focused on Asian investments, in particular Chinese PE firms have raised increasing fund sizes and are open to international investments  US and European private equity funds have been investing in China for years and have dominated the market  However, local funds are catching up in number (c.130 local funds), size (raising single digit billions by fund) and in competitiveness (international training, local knowledge and connections)  The investment focus continues to be China or pan-Asia, however portfolio diversification and attractive investment opportunities in the West are driving initial cross-border investments  Investments tend to be out-right acquisitions, usually led by large, often state-owned Chinese corporates; - However, co-investments with Western players or minority stakes in corporates with the goal of driving China market development for that company are common in PE  The main deal rationales for such deals is the synergy value derived from - a valuable Western consumer proposition / brand leading Western technology Western market access global competitive benefits from acquiring a leading Western player CONFIDENTIAL 14

  • 18. Co-investments and exits Only a couple of weeks ago, the 3rd plenary session of the CPC Central Committee is seen to further open up the Chinese economy  The Third Plenum of each Central Committee is often the time for revealing massive changes in economic policy and the launching of political reforms  There have been two particularly significant Third Plenums in the history of the People’s Republic of China: - the 1978 Third Plenum of the 11th Central Committee, held two years after the death of Chairman Mao Zedong, ended the Cultural Revolution and launched the “reform and opening up of China” under Deng Xiaoping - and the 14th in 1993, held under Jiang Zemin, set the stage for China’s transition to a socialist market economy and led to more aggressive economic reforms promoted by Zhu Rongji  President Xi Jinping and Premier Li Keqiang have presented a series of new policies intended to boost the China market  The eight key areas that the Plan especially addresses include:  cutting administrative approvals promoting competition as well as free flow of international and domestic trade and investments land reform opening up banking including the liberalisation of interest rates and the exchange rate reforming the fiscal system including setting up basic social security reforming state-owned enterprises promoting innovation including green technology opening up the services sector Within these, the Plan has identified three major breakthrough sectors: - lower market barriers to attract investors and boost competition setting up a basic social security package allowing collectively-owned land to be traded CONFIDENTIAL 17

  • 20.

  • 22. Co-investments and exits Despite often high strategic premium price offers and compelling strategic logic of a deal, there are often material obstacles that need to be overcome Challenges Mitigating Factors  Intermediation and mutual education / communication  Clearer communication of key investment hypotheses and involvement of target management / shareholder in evaluation thereof Rationale for China strategic premium not obvious leading to distrust from sellers as to how real the bids are  Expectations management on both sides  Early review and communication of potential issues  Deal approval risk   Political risk In the short-term, focus on strategic cooperation with little operational overlap; medium- to long-term operational collaboration in areas where it makes sense  Doubts regarding access of bidder to finance and confirmation of financing terms  Concern about capability of bidder to manage global operations and retain core assets (Minority shareholders, Management, staff, Brand)  China corporates and investors still primarily focused on China and pan-Asia  lower levels of comfort and confidence in European deal environment CONFIDENTIAL 21
  • 23. Summary observations  China investors, both corporate and financial, will increasingly be looking at investment opportunities beyond the domestic markets  Of particular interest for Chinese investors are companies that - Are related to China focus industries Bring a European brand to the Chinese consumer Help develop Chinese corporates in their globalisation by bringing valuable technology and / or brand to the table  Of particular interest for Western / German investors are - Flexible strategic equity investment (minority / co-investment as well as lead investments) in companies which are less interesting for European PE or strategies - China market access Strategic partnership to defend and build global market position  There are material challenges as with many cross-border deals, however these are often really dealdependent and over time they are on average likely to become less of an issue Keep Chinese investors on the radar for both co-investment and exit strategies CONFIDENTIAL 22
