Keppel Land China divests stakes in a residential cum marina development in Zhongshan

Singapore, 26 October 2017 – Keppel Land China Limited (Keppel Land China) has entered into an agreement to divest its 100% stake in Keppel China Marina Holdings Pte Ltd (“KCMH”) to Delight Prime Limited for a total consideration of approximately RMB 2,900 million (approximately S$597.4 million).

The transaction will yield for Keppel Land China a divestment gain of about S$290 million upon completion, which is expected to take place by end-2017.

KCMH indirectly owns an 80% effective stake in Sunsea Yacht Club (Zhongshan) Co. Ltd. (“SYCZS”), which owns and is developing Keppel Cove, a residential cum marina development on Modao Island, Zhongshan City, China. Covering a total land area of 891,752 sqm, Keppel Cove has completed Phase 1 of its development, comprising 42 villas, a club house and a marina with 82 berths, in March 2017.

Mr Ang Wee Gee, CEO, Keppel Land Limited (Keppel Land), said, “Leveraging Keppel Land’s experience in waterfront developments, we have developed Phase 1 of the premium Keppel Cove project. The divestment is in line with our strategy to recycle assets to seek higher returns and rebalance our portfolio to focus on our five key cities of Shanghai, Beijing, Tianjin, Chengdu and Wuxi, where we have established strong track records and local teams.”

Based on the latest audited financial statements of Keppel Corporation Limited for the financial year ended 31 December 2016 (FY2016), on a proforma financial effects basis, had the Divestment been completed on 31 December 2016, the net tangible asset per share as at 31 December 2016 would have increased from S$6.34 (before the Divestment) to S$6.50 (after the Divestment); and had the Divestment been completed on 1 January 2016, the earnings per share for FY2016 would have increased from 43.2 cents (before the Divestment) to 59.2 cents (after the Divestment).
