Yuling Zheng, Jiewu Hu
This paper studies the role of private equity investment in cross-border mergers and acquisitions of small and medium-sized listed companies in China. The results show that the acquirers with private equity participation can achieve better short-term performance, but the impact on long-term performance is not significant. The findings of this paper provide a good enlightenment for Chinese listed companies to carry out cross-border mergers and acquisitions in the future.
