On 5 February, Sunway REIT (SREIT MK) priced a US$103 million equivalent primary placement, representing 8% of the REIT.
HONG KONG (Dow Jones Banking Intelligence) – Order taking began last week for the IPO of Far East Hospitality Trust (“Far East HT”) in Singapore. Pricing is currently scheduled for August 16, with listing on August 27. The offering is large and visible and was already substantially covered at the time of launch by cornerstone investors. This could provide a well-needed boost to Singapore’s primary market, which has so far this year seen a number of deals pulled, cancelled or otherwise postponed.
HONG KONG (Dow Jones Investment Banker) – Pavilion REIT, a real estate investment trust which will invest in one of Kuala Lumpur’s major shopping malls, is reportedly about to launch an IPO and thus become the latest addition to Malaysia’s REIT (M-REIT) success story.
HONG KONG (Dow Jones Investment Banker) – The first-ever yuan-denominated IPO in Hong Kong – for Hui Xian REIT – priced Tuesday, after having received a rather subdued reception from the public.

HONG KONG (Dow Jones Investment Banker) – Richard Li appears again to be following in his father’s footsteps. Hong Kong’s richest man, Li Ka-shing, just spun off the container port assets of Hutchison Whampoa Ltd. as a business trust on Singapore’s SGX in the world’s largest IPO so far this year. Now PCCW Ltd., in which the younger Li holds a 27.1% stake, is considering a similar listing in Hong Kong for its telecommunications arm, which accounts for about 90% of PCCW’s business.
HONG KONG (Dow Jones Investment Banker) – Last weekend’s simulated trading exercise for yuan securities in Hong Kong, coordinated by the stock exchange, was always a clear signal that the long- awaited launch of the first real estate investment trust to be traded in China’s currency would soon follow. True to form, investor education may be about to kick off for the deal. What has emerged so far shows a few innovations in the offer structure, as well as potentially aggressive pricing.
