EGM for proposed spin-off on 18 April 2022



Potential re-rating of core shipbuilding business subsequently

  • Increased transparency on Yangzijiang Shipbuilding’s investments arm would result from the spin-off, especially the value that the market accords on the investments division subsequently. The market would probably look to the valuations that Chinese banks are trading at, while keeping in mind that larger Chinese banks may have a more developed system of credit controls and evaluation.
  • As for the core shipbuilding business left in Yangzijiang Shipbuilding, it is possible for it to see some re-rating post the spin-off, since this removes an overhang for the stock, leaving for a cleaner, shipbuilding-focused entity.


Yards generally full

  • Indeed, the shipbuilding arm is seeing a recovery in the industry, and Yangzijiang Shipbuilding has 157 vessels worth US$8.5b in its orderbook. 12 new vessel orders were secured in 2H21 as the group’s yards are full till FY24 and management remains selective on orders.

Issued S$50m of unsecured convertible bonds
