Hidden No More :

China Has a Massive Debt Problem


China has a $28 trillion problem.
That’s the country’s total government, corporate and household debt load as of mid-2014, according to McKinsey & Co.

It’s equal to 282 percent of the country’s total annual economic output.

President Xi Jinping’s government aims to wind down that burden to more manageable levels by recapitalizing banks, overhauling local finances and removing implicit guarantees for corporate borrowing that once helped struggling companies.

. . .

Two Goals

“There’s obviously a contradiction between attempts to deleverage the economy and attempts to boost growth,” said Dariusz Kowalczyk, a senior economist at Credit Agricole SA in Hong Kong who’s covered emerging Asia for a decade and used to work at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange. “There’s a trade-off. China will focus on deleveraging as long as growth meets its target but if growth slows excessively then they will refocus.”

On April 17, securities regulators clamped down on margin lending that has helped fuel epic stock market rallies in Shenzhen and Shanghai over the last year.

Three days later, officials unleashed about 1.2 trillion yuan ($194 billion) into the economy -- and stock markets -- by cutting the level of deposits that banks need to hold in reserve with the central bank. For large lenders, the reserve requirement was lowered a full percentage point, to 18.5 percent, the PBOC’s most aggressive such step since 2008.

In a separate move, the People’s Bank of China injected a combined $62 billion worth of capital into two state-owned lenders that are referred to as policy banks, as they carry out government objectives, a Caixin magazine report showed.

Roll Over

Also in recent weeks, China’s Premier Li Keqiang has urged banks to support economic growth and roll over loans when needed to key borrowers.

That call didn’t apply to Baoding Tianwei, which suffered losses last year amid a glut of investment in the solar-energy industry. Nor to Kaisa Group Holdings Ltd., which on Monday became the first Chinese property developer to default on dollar debt.

Kaisa’s delinquency on $1 billion of bonds served as a reminder of the risks for overseas investors -- Chinese companies have $275 billion in dollar-denominated bonds outstanding, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. China’s property developers alone have tapped international bond and equity markets to the tune of almost $79 billion.

HONG KONG SHELLS : Crazy Prices?


Jaw-dropping share price fluctuations that cost a fortune - Shirley Yam, SCMP


+ Entrepreneur from the mainland has listed his business in Hong Kong, and

"only wants a multi-billion dollar company so he can borrow from mainland banks"


+ "To push up the price, he has to corner his shares in the market"

It used to be done in secret, but now in broad daylight, with help from "hordes of investors"


Mainland co's screening proposals (for listing vehicles) might be looking on 8 -10 proposals, with

"each asking for US$30 to 50 million", these deals may contain:


+ A buyback agreement, where a fund will buy a stake in a mainland co., and the company's owners

will have to buy it back in 12 months, with a guaranteed return of 20 percent, thru convertible bonds


+ The fund doing the deal, will finance it thru mainland banks, and the fund may benefit by being

able to borrow more, if the share price has been pushed higher


There are dozens of funds playing this game, and many co's now have 99% of their stock in the hands

of just 10 or less investors (ie they are available "shells")


Once trading at high levels, these are called "fairy stocks". And their share prices can be vulnerable,

if/when the game unravels


Why do banks support this game?

As Ms Yam writes: mainland banks may believe the big HK market caps and have "a different definition of risk",

and the company may be well-promoted to the banks. And the banks may not see what the game really is

until after the share price falls back. Meantime, the entrepreneur scrambles to keep the game going
