Megadeals drive record Chinese overseas buying spree

HONG KONG -- Less than six months into 2016, the value of Chinese overseas acquisitions so far has already surpassed last year's record-breaking figure. The number has been setting all-time highs every year since 2010.

As of May 10, the total transaction value totaled $110.8 billion, topping the $106.8 billion for all of 2015, and nearly quadrupled the amount for the same period last year, according to data provider Dealogic.
