CK Hutchison’s diverse, multinational footprint requires both disciplined strategy and robust financing to promote ongoing development across the many different sectors in which it operates.

Formed through the merger of Hutchison Whampoa and Cheung Kong (Holdings), CK Hutchison Holdings (“CK Hutchison”) is among the largest companies listed on the main board of The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited, with a global portfolio of businesses spanning ports, retail, infrastructure, energy and telecommunications in over 50 countries and employing over 270,000 people.

On 5 April, Barclays acted as Joint Bookrunner and Joint Lead Manager for CK Hutchison on a €2 billion 7-and 12-year dual-tranche bond offering, the largest international corporate euro issuance from Asia Pacific in 2016*.

We are very pleased to be involved in CK Hutchison’s debut bond offering. CK Hutchison took advantage of the recent momentum and ECB dynamic in the Euro markets. Ultimately, more expensive debt was refinanced with much lower coupon debt, which helped CK Hutchison save significantly in interest costs.
Reid Marsh, Head of Banking, Asia Pacific

Having a long-standing relationship with CK Hutchison and deep knowledge of the European investor base, our local coverage teams in Hong Kong worked closely with our European Syndicate team to recommend a sweet spot for the transaction and helped CK Hutchison meet both price and size objectives. 

This latest deal, and previous transactions we’ve executed on behalf of Hutchison Whampoa and Cheung Kong (Holdings), demonstrate how the tactical combination of local expertise and strength in European financing markets can help Asian corporates strategically expand business across borders and pursue their global ambitions.
