O’Melveny’s Bush Quoted on Chinese Merger Review in International Financial Law Review

March 20, 2013

International Financial Law Review’s March 14, 2013, article, “Why Chinese Merger Review Takes So Long,” quotes O’Melveny & Myers LLP partner Nathan Bush on what types of foreign direct investment deals in China will trigger a merger review by Chinese officials in the Anti-Monopoly (AML) Bureau. “It’s important to note that a high-profile FDI [foreign direct investment] deal into China may not require merger review, while a global M&A transaction that is not China-focused and lacks a China FDI component may nevertheless trigger the mandatory merger notification process based on the parties’ annual revenues from China,” Bush said in the article.

Bush is a member of O'Melveny's Antitrust & Competition Practice and resides in the Firm's Singapore office.
