About Us

Dai1 Media aims to provide our subscribers the latest news, insight and analysis about private transactions in China.

China is the world’s second largest economy and is anticipated to surpass U.S. as the largest economy by 2030. Outbound deals by U.S. private equity firms in China have been growing over the past two decades. However, there is not a dedicated publication about private equity deals in China. Existing sources of financial news such as The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg and Reuters provide general coverage, while practitioners call for more specialized content such as deal terms and processes, lead generation and execution, as well as cultural nuances that led to the uniqueness of such matters.

With a team of experienced financial journalists, many of whom are bilingual, we intend to inform private equity firms, private debt funds, distressed credit investors, investment bankers, lawyers, family offices and institutional investors about doing deals in China.

We focus on deal-making for companies and assets based in China. The types of transactions we cover include leveraged buyouts, growth equity, direct lending, distressed-for-control, structured finance, special situations and real estate financing. Our coverage focuses on privately-held businesses, family- or founder-owned enterprises, and private equity firms’ portfolio companies and also includes publicly traded corporations and state-owned enterprises.
