Hong Kong Airlines to Apply for Dual-Currency Listing
1 September 2014
Copyright © 2014 Dow Jones & Company, Inc.

HONG KONG--Hong Kong Airlines will apply for listing approval from the Hong Kong Stock Exchange for a US$500 million initial public offering that would be the city's first dual-currency IPO.

The airline, which focuses on short-haul flights, plans to submit a so-called listing application to the stock exchange Monday to float a yuan and Hong Kong dollar-denominated deal, a person familiar with the situation said Monday, adding the listing is likely to be in the fourth quarter.

The airline, which based in Hong Kong, is planning offer half of the shares in the retail tranche of the IPO in yuan-denominated offerings. The retail portion will make up 10% of the total IPO, the person said. Investors who buy from the institutional tranche of the IPO, accounting for 90% of the deal, will be allotted some yuan-denominated shares if there is sufficient demand for them, the person said.

Demand from institutional investors is unlikely to be huge, as most invest in U.S. dollars. Many Hong Kong residents, who can buy in the public tranche of the IPO, however, sit on billions of yuan of deposits, since China started allowing them to save yuan in the city.

By the end of June, yuan deposits in the Chinese territory totaled 925.9 billion yuan (US$150.6 billion), up from 893.4 billion yuan in January, according to the Hong Kong Monetary Authority.

China has been moving to loosen restrictions on its currency as part of efforts to internationalize the yuan, with Hong Kong whose currency is pegged to the U.S. dollar, acting as the de facto center of the nation's test of allowing banks and individuals to freely trade the yuan abroad.

The share offering would be the latest yuan-denominated product offered to investors in Hong Kong, seeking returns from their growing yuan deposits.

Currently, yuan investments products in the city are limited. The only company in Hong Kong that trades in the Chinese currency, Hui Xian Real Estate Investment Trust, raised US$1.6 billion in an IPO in April 2011. Other than that, most Hong Kong investors with yuan deposits spend it on yuan bonds, also known as "dim-sum bonds', which have emerged since international companies began selling them in 2010.

Hong Kong Airlines is controlled by Chinese conglomerate HNA Group, whose holdings include Hainan Airlines. It flies short-haul regional routes between Hong Kong and other destinations in Asia, including Phuket in Thailand, Osaka in Japan, and Chinese cities like Beijing and Shanghai.

The airline, which has a fleet of around 23 aircraft, is looking to list as it grapples with high fuel prices and competition from bigger rival Cathay Pacific Airways Ltd. Funds raised from an IPO would go toward financing its plan to buy more aircraft, the carrier had said.

J.P. Morgan Chase & Co is handling the transaction.

Hong Kong Airlines to test investor appetite
6 September 2014
South China Morning Post

Hong Kong Airlines’ proposed share sale, the city’s first dual-currency deal, is set to test investor appetite for the competitive and risky sector.

Industry views of the regional carrier’s prospects are fairly evenly divided, given the operational challenges from premium airlines and short-haul budget carriers that offer competitive pricing to a growing number of travellers in the region.

“Admittedly, the appetite for airlines is low among investors, given the recent spate of disasters and concerns over excess capacity,” K Ajith, a Singapore-based analyst at UOB Kay Hian Research, told the South China Morning Post.

“There is substantial concentration risk for the regional carrier and it could be vulnerable to entrance by new players or budget airline startups in North Asia,” he added.

Hong Kong Airlines, owned by HNA Group, is planning to raise US$500 million in a Hong Kong float in what could be the first dual-currency IPO. It plans to offer half of the retail tranche in yuan, with the rest in Hong Kong dollars.

HNA Group is the parent of Hainan Airlines and owns both of Hainan’s airports, as well as a number of hotels and travel agencies.

In Hong Kong’s listing market, the retail portion represents about 10 per cent of the entire deal, while institutional investors account for 90 per cent. The two sets of shares will carry different stock codes, but holders will enjoy the same rights, according to people involved in the deal.

Despite a cloudy outlook for the industry, analysts agreed that the ample liquidity in the Asian market should help the floating of shares.

“Appetite for airline shares is not very strong but market sentiment could probably support [the float],” said Bocom International analyst Geoffrey Cheng. “A listing will enhance Hong Kong Airlines’ balance sheet but not necessarily competitiveness, since Hong Kong’s aviation business is highly competitive.”

The company’s gearing ratio, a metric of indebtedness, was well above 200 per cent over the past three years, according to its listing document.

Its outstanding debts amoun ted to HK$13.57 billion in May.

The offering is scheduled to be listed in the middle of the fourth quarter of the year, and the yuan portion of the IPO aims to tap the city’s ample retail yuan deposits, according to people familiar with preparations for the listing.

Tough operating conditions are likely to endure, with Air China, the mainland’s largest airline, posting a 55 per cent decline in first-half earnings despite a 7 per cent increase in passenger traffic.

Upon listing, the firm said it plans to raise anther 2.3 billion yuan in two renminbi-denominated notes for professional and institutional investors, according to the prospectus.

Gaming mogul Stanley Ho Hung-sun holds a 3.4 per cent stake before the share sale.

Ticket shock as HK Express celebrates
The Standard
Thursday, September 25, 2014

As HK Express prepares to celebrate one year of business as a low-cost carrier, a lucky passenger got a special surprise.

Corgi Hui Wing-yi discovered upon arrival at Hong Kong International Airport that she is the one millionth passenger on HK Express since the airline's transformation in October.

Hui was delighted when told she has won roundtrip flights for herself and five others to a destination of her choice.

"I'm shocked," she said. "I can't believe my luck at being the millionth guest. It was my first trip to Japan and my first time flying with HK Express. I just returned from a fantastic trip to Tokyo so this is icing on the cake."

She said she will use the prize to travel to Osaka with family and friends.

HK Express commercial director Luke Lovegrove said: "It's an important milestone that attests to our commitment to exceptional customer service, safety and reliability."

HK Express also announced it will add a second daily direct flight to Tokyo-Haneda from November 16.

HK Express flying high as low-cost gains lift
The Standard Excerpt
Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Hong Kong Express saw passenger numbers spike 123 percent to more than a million in the 12 months since last October after its transformation into a low-cost carrier.

The airline aims to increase destinations served to 30 by 2016 from the present 15, amid growing local demand for budget travel.

Passenger growth came as its fleet was expanded from five to eight aircraft, which boosted capacity by 15 percent.

Its Airbus 320s now have 176 seats compared with 152 earlier, and each plane is in service for an average of 12 hours a day, four hours longer than a year back. Load factor - a gauge of how many seats are occupied on each flight - also ticked up 10 percent, though it remains below 80 percent.

Deputy chief executive Andrew Cowen expects the company to break even this year.

He said it is running at a per-seat cost of 35 percent below a conventional carrier and close to a large low-cost carrier.

HK Express Records 123% Passenger Growth
Airline launches $1 fares to thank Guests on 1st Anniversary since transformation

13 October 2014
Press Release Excerpt

To mark the one year anniversary of their transformation to a low-cost carrier (LCC), HK Express today released new figures showing the airline’s
remarkable success and growth story over the past 12 months.

In October 2013, HK Express announced plans to transform to a low-cost carrier (LCC). Since that time, HK Express’ passenger numbers have grown 123%, compared with the pre-LCC era dated 30 September 2013. This
success can be attributed to a number of factors, including:

- A 50% increase in aircraft utilization rate with each aircraft in the fleet now
employed for an average of 12 hours a day (as opposed to eight hours a day pre-LCC)

- A 15% increase in aircraft capacity – each A320 in the fleet now has 176 seats (as opposed to 152 seats pre-LCC)

- An increase in the fleet size, from five to eight aircraft;

- A 10% increase in load factor (load factor refers to the percentage of the aircraft that is utilized each flight)

Hong Kong IPO market prepares for another year-end rush
1 December 2014
South China Morning Post Excerpt

Hong Kong is set for another year-end listing rush as a clutch of companies press ahead with plans to raise at least US$10 billion during December.

There are at least three sizeable deals in the pipeline, each more than US$1 billion, apart from smaller candidates like restaurant chain Xiabu Xiabu and regional carrier Hong Kong Airlines.

Companies have so far raised nearly US$17 billion on Hong Kong's two listing platforms - the main board and the Growth Enterprise Market - according to data provider Dealogic. But December itself could easily surpass the amount raised earlier this year.

HK Express fires Xmas fares salvo
24 December 2014
China Daily Excerpt

HK Express - one of 18 low-cost airlines operating out of Hong Kong - has jumped on the Christmas bandwagon, launching its mega sale for the festive season with fares starting from as low as HK$5 ($0.6) to 14 destinations, including Ningbo in Zhejiang province and Busan in South Korea.

Airport taxes and fuel surcharges are not included in the promotion, which could add HK$550 or more to a passenger's bill. Hand luggage should not exceed 7 kilograms and no airport meals will be provided in line with the services offered by low-cost carriers (LCCs).

HK Express, which was incorporated in Hong Kong in 2004 and started its first flights as an LCC in October last year, is currently the city's only local low-fare airline operating a fleet of nine Airbus A320s flying to 15 destinations across Asia.

But, in terms of fleet size, it lags far behind that of other regional LCCs, such as Lion Air, Indonesia's and the Asia-Pacific's largest single LCC, which operates 94 in-service aircraft, and Cebu Pacific, the largest budget airline in the Philippines, which has a fleet of 50 aircraft.

"The emergence of LCCs in other Asian regions was much earlier and the industry has been developing rapidly for more than 10 years," said Andrew Cowen, deputy chief executive officer of HK Express. "But, in Hong Kong, the LCC market is still under-developed," he added.

According to Cowen, there are 18 budget airlines operating in and out of Hong Kong at present, including HK Express.

He said the company closely monitors airlines operating in Singapore which resembles Hong Kong in terms of the local economic environment and tourism.

But in Hong Kong, the average market fare is twice of that of Singapore, while the penetration of LCCs in the city state is about 30 percent.

"LCCs accounted for some 8 percent of Hong Kong's market share in December 2014, compared with 11.5 percent for Northeast Asia and 57 percent for Southeast Asia," noted David Fraser, managing director of Greater China at Flight Centre, an Australian travel agency group.

The biggest challenge, he said, lies with the capacity issue at Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA).

Hong Kong Airlines in Talks To Sell Stake to Investor; Delaying Planned HK IPO, Sources
3 March 2015
Dow Jones Excerpt

Hong Kong Airlines International Holdings Ltd. is in talks to sell a stake in itself to a strategic investor, people with knowledge of the deal said Tuesday, delaying the short-haul carrier's plans to list in the city in coming months.

The carrier, which flies to Southeast Asian beach getaways such as Phuket, Thailand, as well as big Chinese cities, applied with Hong Kong's exchange to undertake the first-ever yuan-Hong Kong dollar IPO in September. Its US$500 million IPO was slated for some time in the first half of the year.
