High-quality assets available as West struggles with economic crisis

Outbound merger and acquisition deals by Chinese companies are expected to increase next year, a report said on Wednesday.

Due to the eurozone debt crisis, many high-quality assets have became available in Europe at competitive valuations, so Chinese companies have been active in large-scale M&A deals since 2011, said a report by Chinese research firm ChinaVenture Group.

The main sectors for M&A activity are expected to be energy, engineering machinery and infrastructure, which require significant funds and policy support. Chinese companies in these sectors are expected to increase their M&A activity next year, ChinaVenture said.

"China has a huge demand for energy and is going abroad to seek opportunities," said Wan Ge, author of the report and an analyst at ChinaVenture.

"Usually, Chinese buyers are State-owned enterprises so the trade value of these deals is considerable," Wan said.
