How to Merge the Chinese Enterprises

      Alongside the establishment of the State-owned Asset Supervision and Administration
Commission (SASAC) of the State Council in March 2003, Chinese authorities start to orderly
construct a new state-owned asset management system from top to bottom. Under the control of
this new state-owned asset management system, a new wave of privatization of state-owned
enterprises (SOEs) is emerging in China. As compared to the past privatization of state-owned
enterprises, this new wave of privatization presents a remarkable feature — the state property of
enterprises has to be transacted publicly at the property trade markets. In past, local governments
privatized most SOEs in the way of insider holding shares to purchase their SOEs, such as
management buy-out (MBO), employee stock ownership plan (ESOP), so that excluded
outsiders to purchase SOEs. The insider holding shares to purchase their SOEs has occurred a
bulk of state-owned assets to be embezzled and eroded by insiders. The severe erosion of state-
owned assets led the central government to make decision on establishment of SASAC and a
new state-owned asset management system from top to bottom. As a result, SASAC promulgated
the “Opinion on Normalizing Ownership Transformation of SOEs” on 25 November 2003 and
the “Interim Regulation on Transference of State Property of Enterprises” on 31 December 2003
respectively to avoid the erosion of state-owned assets. These regulations stress that the
transference of state property of enterprises has to be transacted at competitive price at the
property trade markets, and publicized information on transactions. Thus, China opens the door
to a lucrative market for outside investors to purchase and merge SOEs. At the same time, the
“Interim Provisions on Introducing Foreign Investment to Reorganize State-owned Enterprises”
promulgated by the former State Economy and Trade Commission (SECT), Ministry of Finance
(MOF), State Administrative Bureau of Industry and Commerce (SAIC), and State
Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE) has been come into force since January 2003, so
that the emerging new wave of privatizing SOEs brings foreign investors a good opportunity to
purchase and merge the Chinese SOEs.
