Ford to build third car assembly plant in SW China

BEIJING, Sept. 25 (Xinhua) -- US-based Ford Motor announced on Friday that it is going to build a new car assembly plant in southwestern China's Chongqing Municipality, in an effort to catch up with major rivals in the Chinese market.

The new plant, with an investment of 490 million US dollars, or 3.34 billion yuan in Chinese currency Renminbi, will produce the next-generation Focus compact car. The production capacity is expected to reach 150,000 units in 2012, when the plant goes into operation.

The plant will be run jointly with China's Chongqing ChangAn Automotive Co. and Japan's Mazda Motor Corp. under their joint venture ChangAn Ford Mazda Automotive, as are its two existing plants in China.

The move will increase Ford and Mazda's combined annual production capacity in China from the current 447,000 units to 600,000 units.

ChangAn Ford Mazda sold 144,601 Ford brand cars during the first eight months, up 30 percent from the previous year's period. August sales of Ford-brand cars surged 111 percent from a year earlier to 21,127 units.

Ford started late in China and now wants to grab a bigger slice of the rapidly growing auto market in the country.

The automaker said months ago that it planned to move its Asia-Pacific headquarters and Africa regional headquarters to China, said Gasgoo.com.

Longfor May Raise HK$7.1 Billion in IPO, E-Mail Says

Quote:
Nov. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Longfor Properties Co., the largest developer in the southwestern Chinese city of Chongqing, may raise as much as HK$7.1 billion ($916 million) in a Hong Kong initial public offering, according to a share sale document.

Longfor plans to sell 1 billion new shares, or a 20 percent stake, at HK$6.06 to HK$7.10 each, said the document e-mailed to fund managers today. The sale values the company at HK$35.5 billion, or 14 times 2010 earnings, as estimated by banks involved in the sale.

Longfor, backed by Temasek Holdings Pte and Ping An Insurance (Group) Co., is pushing ahead with the IPO after a flurry of similar share sales by Chinese developers were shelved or downsized as the stock market declined and more property companies offered shares. Five Chinese developers, including Longfor, Evergrande Real Estate Group Ltd. and Yuzhou Properties Co., began marketing their Hong Kong IPOs last month.

“In terms of fundamentals, Longfor is quite privileged, given its landbank covers major cities in northern and western China,” said Wang Ren, a Hong Kong-based analyst at CCB International Co., by telephone today. “They are in a strong market position, they’re quite niche as they focus on the luxury segment. There are too many choices now, so investors have to be very selective. Some of the IPOs are very low-quality.”

Longfor was the largest developer in terms of the gross floor area of residential projects sold in the three years to 2008 in Chongqing, according to a draft share sale prospectus. With 30 million people, Chongqing is the largest and most populous of China’s four municipalities.

Since 2008 it has expanded to other Chinese cities, including Chengdu, Xian, Beijing and Shanghai.

Cornerstones

China’s home prices rebounded this year as the government implemented a $585 billion stimulus package and banks extended a record $1.27 trillion of credit to spur a recovery in the world’s third-largest economy. Home prices rose at the fastest pace in a year in September.

Prices in 70 Chinese cities climbed 2.8 percent from a year earlier after gaining 2 percent in August, the National Bureau of Statistics said in October.

Five institutions, including the Government of Singapore Investment Corp. and Temasek, the city-state’s two state-owned investment companies, and Ping An Insurance (Group) Co., China’s second-biggest insurer, will buy a combined $197.5 million worth of Longfor’s IPO shares as “cornerstone investors,” said the share sale document.

Companies use cornerstone investors, who are guaranteed shares in an IPO by agreeing not to sell their investments for a few months, to attract other buyers to their offerings.

Yuzhou

“At the end of the day its all about market sentiment, timing and at the moment everyone is cautious in case we get a major correction,” said Andrew Sullivan, a sales trader at Mainfirst Securities Hong Kong Ltd. in Hong Kong. “Obviously it helps if you can raise the profile by getting cornerstone investors.”

Yuzhou Properties Co., a Xiamen, southern China-based property developer, declined as much as 10 percent on its debut in Hong Kong today and was trading 7 percent lower at HK$2.51 as of 10:44 a.m. local time. The benchmark Hang Seng Index fell 2 percent. Yuzhou raised HK$1.5 billion selling shares at HK$2.70 last month.

Twenty-six Chinese property developer IPOs in Hong Kong since 2003 have raised a combined $15.1 billion, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Excellence Real Estate Group Ltd., the largest developer in Shenzhen’s central business district, last month delayed a Hong Kong IPO that could have raised as much as $1 billion, according to a company statement.

Mingfa Group (International) Co., a developer in the southern Chinese provinces of Fujian and Jiangsu, last week decided to restart its IPO at a later date and cut the top end of an offering range by 24 percent, it said in a statement.

Citigroup Inc., Morgan Stanley and UBS AG are managing the Longfor sale, which is scheduled to be priced Nov. 12. The stock will start trading Nov. 19.

It isn't on hold. That pic was probably taken during the National Day holidays.
