HONG KONG SAR
– Media OutReach – 19
November 2020 – CIFI Holdings
(Group) Co. Ltd.
(“CIFI” or the “Group”, HKEx stock code:
884), a leading real estate developer and investor in first-, second- and
robust third-tier cities in China, is pleased that the Group successfully
priced its US$350 million,5.5-year
senior notes with coupon rate of 5.25% at par on 6 November 2020. Concurrently,
the Group announced its offer to repurchase its two existing senior notes due
in the first half of 2021 with coupon rates of 7.625% and 6.875% respectively
and to redeem one perpetual bonds with a coupon rate of 5.375% for a total sum
of US$420 million. The move can help CIFI reduce the average financing costs, save
on interest expenses, and optimize its overall debt structure.

Large
institutional investors enthusiastically subscribed for CIFI’s newly issued
senior notes with positive response from the capital market, reflecting the
market’s recognition of CIFI’s credit quality. The final over-subscription of
the senior notes was 3.5 times, and total order at peak time was nearly 5 times
of the issue size. The Group’s final redemption scale has been upsized from
US$350 million to US$420 million, which fulfilled the market demand and investors’ repurchase needs for two
high-yield bonds, and also expanded the redemption scale
to meet their repurchase needs for perpetual bonds. The deal ranked the first
in the scale of repurchase agreements among recent Chinese high-yield notes
issuers,
and became one of the most active participations in the capital market.

position and abundant cash flow.”
