Parallel to our regular services provided to international trade and general cargo business, Zhong Sheng has also advised clients over their foreign direct investments ("FDIs") in China during the past 20 years. While the recent trend of development is that we have become increasingly involved in giving advice to local clients' overseas mergers & acquisitions or to their setting up of off-shore companies. Noticeably, Zhong Sheng has been busy making its presence felt in the post IPOs, the market exit or the delisting process for some of its big IT company clients, to help them withdraw from the U.S. stock markets and elsewhere and to get publicly listed again in the domestic stock markets.

1. Foreign Direct Investments

We have advised a number of foreign clients over a number of foreign direct investment (FDI) cases in China. We have been required to provide assistance for matters relating to the setting up the foreign corporate entities across China, including the wholly-owned foreign investment enterprise ("WOFEs"); the Sino-foreign joint venture ("JVs"); and the Sino-foreign cooperative venture; or, for matters relating to the establishment of the representative offices or, the strategic relocation of the company headquarters or regional headquarters in China.

For such matters, we help conduct legal due diligence, issue legal opinions to address some specific issues, such as tax-exempt status or re-investment, the employment and labor disputes etc. On some occasions, we may directly liaise with the regulatory authorities so to help facilitate the approval and registration process.

2. Outbound Investments

We help our clients every step of the way on matters relating to the applications and approvals, internally and externally, as required for the proposed outbound investments; and offer our expert opinions on the scale and the structure of such investment projects.

In addition to our investigation and documentation assistance, we would, by working in close collaboration with our foreign friend law firms, help clients with their understanding of the regulatory regime and potential risks in the target's jurisdictions. We may, upon requests, participate directly in the negotiation talks, formal or informal.
