Real estate enterprises obtained 70% of the total financing line, among which private enterprises obtained 41.6% of the total financing line.In addition, 29.4 percent of financial institutions’ m&a bonds were financed.Megacities, capital university of economics and economic and social development research institute, the Beijing real estate law, vice President and secretary general Zhao Xiuchi believes that since 2022, many enterprises capital bottleneck, the management difficulty, need to merger and reorganization to out of the woods, this is the background of m&a financing active class, but this kind of financing can really play a role,Also consider the risk of merger and acquisition and the sustainable development ability of the project itself.Beautiful home buyers held on March 28, 2021 annual performance, the company chairman, executive director and CEO Hao Hengle revealed that “in the fourth quarter of last year to now, the beautiful home buyers have to acquire the equity of 13 projects, a total investment of $17, but due to revitalize the stock of capital and with the aid of m&a loan, group takes money only $4.”Hao Hengle also said that according to the strategy, the company will promote the acquisition and replacement of partner projects in the future, and improve the proportion of self-trading.The above real estate company executives believe that mergers and acquisitions will definitely occur in 2022, but even though many real estate companies have obtained m&a financing, it is not certain whether the mergers and acquisitions among real estate companies will become a trend this year.”Because at present, most private enterprises are under pressure in the capital chain and have no time to spare.”State-owned and central enterprises must be picky in the market and take the opportunity to lower prices when negotiating projects. It is a question whether their offer can cover the mortgage loans of the projects.”
