Australian SMEs seeking expansion capital

succession_analysisMany Australian businesses are seeking capital to grow and expand, while Chinese investors are looking for opportunities to diversify their wealth. Australia is considered a good country to do business, with many offshore investors seeking potential collaboration, access to capabilities and supply chain for their own markets.

Valued Expat Advisors Community member, Craig West and the team at Succession Plus, work with Australian companies to help them grow, expand and for many ultimately sell their businesses.

They regularly publish an overview of investment-ready businesses, many of them in sectors that may be of interest to Chinese investors. Some of the current opportunities include:

• A clean technology company with a global focus on energy efficiency and carbon reduction,

• A real estate sale and rental management group,

• A niche electrical and data contractor with a focus on new hospitals and medical centres.

To view the investor ready profiles of a number of businesses check out the Investment Overview – March 2016 booklet.

Craig West is also Chairman of the SME Association of Australia, author of Enjoy It on business succession and exit planning, and contributing author to Smooth Road to Travel – China to Australia.
