Keppel Land China Limited, through its subsidiary Hillwest Pte Ltd., divested 100% of its equity interest in Chengdu Shengshi Jingwei Real Estate Co., Ltd. for around RMB1,561m (S$324m).
Its shares will be sold to subsidiaries of China Vanke Co. Ltd, Keppel Corporation Limited said in a disclosure. Chengdu Shengshi owns Serenity Villas, a residential development project in Mumashan, Chengdu, China.
The buyers will pay RMB1,405m (S$292m) to Hillwest as consideration for the sale shares, while RMB156m (S$32m) will be paid to a related company of Hillwest as repayment for loans extended to Chengdu Shengshi.
“The Consideration was arrived at on a willing-buyer, willing-seller basis, taking into account, among others, the location of the Site, prevailing market conditions and the adjusted net asset value based on the agreed value of the Site attributable to the Sale Shares, which was approximately RMB1,405m (approximately S$292m) as of 30 June 2021,” Keppel said.
