Interested in buying a business in Hong Kong? You may want to read this practice note on consideration and acquisition finance by Simon Weller and Edward Freeman from Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, where they discuss the main issues to consider when structuring consideration and finance (debt or equity, or a combination of the two) for an acquisition of a Hong Kong company. It discusses common forms of consideration used in Hong Kong (including the use of shares by a foreign buyer), common financing structures, and financial assistance by sellers in Hong Kong.
