The New York Private Equity Network (NYPEN) is pleased to invite you to a seminar on Helping Your Portfolio Companies Analyze Strategic Options for Manufacturing in China.

Presented by:  Andy Mulkerin, Managing Partner, the Nicobar Group

US companies that need to manufacture products or components in China have more options than ever to establish operations - but how do you know which operating structure is right for your portfolio company? The decision to enter into a joint-venture partnership or undertake an acquisition instead of building a Greenfield facility has meaningful and lasting ramifications. Does it make more sense to enter into a strategic relationship or open an international purchasing office? By better understanding the pros and cons of these various options, the Private Equity manager can better guide his/her portfolio executives down the right path. We’ll provide practical advice on what works and what doesn’t, as well as address the current macro risk landscape.

From there, we’ll shift gears and briefly discuss the latest China quality-related issues (Mattel, Thomas Train, etc). What can you do to ensure your portfolio companies receive high-quality products from China and stay out of the headlines?
