Singapore Market Update: HNA calls for shareholder meeting to vote on privatising-CWT offer

CIMB Research is keeping its “add” call on China Jinjiang Environment (CJE) with an unchanged target price of $1.10, despite lowering its earnings per share (EPS) forecasts.

HNA Holding -

The research house is trimming China Jinjiang’s FY17-FY19F EPS by 1.8%, 2.2%, and 2.0%, respectively.

CIMB Share Market analyst Keith Li says this is to adjust for its new project completion schedule.

The Hong Kong-listed unit pursuing the purchase, HNA Holding Group Co., has scheduled an extraordinary general meeting for Sept 6, according to the people.

It plans to announce the date of the extraordinary general meeting to the stock exchange soon, the people said, asking not to be identified discussing private information.

CWT shares closed Friday at $2.13, an 8.6% discount to the HNA offer of $2.33 per share, a sign some investors see risks that the takeover won’t be completed as the Chinese government ramps up scrutiny of serial dealmakers.

Banks working on financing the acquisition have been seeking more information from HNA and started scrutinising its debt levels more closely, people with knowledge of the matter said in July.

HNA Holding announced last month that it expects to hold a shareholder vote on the deal between the end of August and early September.

All the pre-conditions of the acquisition must be fulfilled or waived by Sept 9 for it to proceed. A representative for CWT declined to comment, while a representative for HNA Group didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

Chinese regulators have been assessing the risks that HNA Group and other acquisitive companies pose to the country’s financial system.

HNA Group has announced more than US$40 billion of purchases since the beginning of 2016, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
