Sunac China’s capital raising comes amid a liquidity crunch in China’s debt-heavy real estate sector which has seen the likes of property firms Fantasia and Kaisa Group default on bond payments recently.

Interest-free loan

The company added that Sun Hongbin, a controlling shareholder of Sunac China, will provide an interest-free loan of $450m to support the business.

Sunac China said it intends to use 50% of the total money raised for repayment of loans, while the rest of the capital will be used for general corporate purposes.

“While we acknowledge the dilution impact of such placement, considering the uncertain credit environment for developers, we think this is a right move for Sunac to gather sufficient funding on hand to get over its short-term tight liquidity that is driven by weak sales/refinancing difficulty,” said Stephen Cheung and Calvin Leung of Jefferies.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
