China is Expanding at a Global Level
The Chinese government is encouraging companies to invest abroad to gain access to foreign markets and technology, as economic growth stalls at home.
Fosun chairman Guo Guangchang said the latest deal was an “important milestone for the laying out of Fosun’s globalisation strategy of being present in the important emerging economies.”
Fosun intends to use the acquisition as a gateway to Brazil and the Latin American region in business areas such as property and investment, the statement said.
The Chinese conglomerate announced on Friday that its pharmaceutical unit would buy just over an 86 percent stake in India’s Gland Pharma for up to 1.26 billion.
And earlier this month, it completed a takeover of the English Championship football club Wolves.
Fosun chairman Guo has been described as China’s Warren Buffet. Hong Kong-listed Fosun also owns Club Med and has a stake in Cirque du Soleil.
Guo mysteriously disappeared for several days in December before re-emerging, and his company said he was “assisting” in investigations by authorities. The incident initially raised alarm among investors who feared he had run afoul of the law.
