Melbourne (18 December 2019) —Cross Border M&A activity is increasing rapidly with 2020 expected to be a breakout year in Australia/Asia. However, the field remains littered with transactions where significant value was lost and the transactions did not perform because a major hurdle of the Cultural Differences were inadequately addressed.
BlueMount Capital Victoria and BlueMount Capital (Beijing) Co., Ltd have partnered with Global PMI Partners, an international firm widely recognised as one of the world leaders in M&A and who specialise in post-merger integration (PMI).
BlueMount Capital Beijing’s Executive President, Dr Mona Chung, is internationally recognised for her unique and ground-breaking work in dealing with the Cultural Differences between Western and Eastern Cultures, particularly, between China and the West.
BlueMount Capital and Global PMI Partners held a joint webinar on 11th of December, 2019, titled “Overcoming Cultural Differences in Cross Border M&A“. It was a very successful presentation and multiple high levels of positive feedback has been received.
A video recording of the webinar is available for viewing below.
