Sinotruk launched in HK stock market

Source: Shanghai Daily
SHARES of Sinotruk (Hong Kong) Ltd plunged on the first trading day of its initial public offering in Hong Kong yesterday, possibly due to an overvalued price. China’s largest maker of heavy-duty trucks dropped 15.6 percent to close at HK$10.86 (US$1.39) yesterday compared with its float price of HK$12.88, the top of the company’s initial price range.

The flat debut came after the initial offer was oversubscribed by institutional and individual investors. The Ji’nan, Shangdong Province-based truck maker raised a record high of HK$9 billion yuan after selling 702 million new shares, accounting for 32 percent of its capital.

Hong Kong individuals applied for more than 300 times the number of stock initially set aside for them, while demand from international institutions was about 50 times the available shares.

"The drop is within market expectation because the IPO price is overvalued amid an earlier market boom," said Xia Ping, auto analyst from Core-Pacific Yamaichi International (HK) Ltd, an investment banking firm. "But the strong fundamentals will still support the stock in the long term," Xia added.

Ma Chunji, chairman of Sinotruk, declined to comment on the price slump, reiterating the HK IPO would benefit the company’s long-term development in the auto industry on both domestic and overseas markets, according to finet.hk yesterday.

The sale proceeds will be used to fund production expansion, technology upgrades as well as research and development , Sinotruk said in its share-sale document.

The Chinese partner of Volvo AB earlier announced it will invest 800 million yuan by 2010 to double its capacity, thanks to China’s rapidly growing economy and increase in fixed assets. It aims to sell 125,000 heavy-duty trucks by 2010, of which one-third will be exported to overseas markets, Sinotruk’s Ma said earlier.

Sinotruk also has a Shenzhen-listed subsidiary, which also lost 3.2 percent yesterday to 46.82 yuan.

Chinese truck maker Sinotruck enters Kenyan market.

April 1, 2008 - The launch of a new brand from China is set to drive competition a notch higher in the heavy trucks market in Kenya. Made by Chinese auto maker Sinotruck, the vehicle offers Kenyan transporters a competitively priced truck expected to curve its niche in the fast growing commercial segment of the automobiles market in the African country.

It will be sold by the Africa China Motor Group (ACMG), a company incorporated in Kenya by the brand owners. Mr Imran Khan, the managing director of ACGM, said the company hopes to sell 500 units this year. He described the launch of the truck as the first step in a journey that will see more of the company’s products in the regional market.

The vehicles will be retailing at between Sh4.5 million (US$71,400) and Sh4.8 million. There are about 200 Sinotruks on Kenyan roads, most of them directly imported from China. Nairobi will serve as the company’s regional office for East and Central Africa as well as Southern Sudan. Mr Khan said ACGM was looking for partners in region to increase its sale points.

ACGM, which won the exclusive rights to sell Sinotruck brands last year, has invested more than Sh300 million in the venture. Mr Khan said the company will invest another Sh189 million in a new show room on Mombasa Road.

The arrival of a new Chinese truck in the Kenyan market is expected to increase competition in a segment of the motor industry where sales have been increasing steadily over the past three years.

Re: Sino Truck (China National Heavy Duty Truck Group)

Its very impressive growth by Sinotruck.

I am curious as to the operating structure - Eddie Stobart the big UK trucker as telematics [spies] in all its trucks - I imagine that China is a more practical level of fleet operation. Is the market highly fragmented- where else would have the information : )?
