Authors: W. K. Leung   Kim Yim
The Peoples' Republic of China was considered to be a potential market for foreign investment following major economic reforms initiated in 1977. By 1991, however, trade restrictions meant it was still difficult for foreign investors to operate in service-related industries. The case describes a proposed merger between Forever Holdings, a Hong Kong based property management and investment company, and Dah Tak Ltd., a manufacturing and services company based in Shenzhen Special Economic Zone, China. The two companies operated in different industries and neither had performed particularly well in the previous financial year. Could there be any strategic benefits or synergies obtained from a merger?
