【本報訊】和黃(013)出售百佳已進入最後大直路。消息指有關競購將在下周最後一次出價,依目前情況來看將會是澳洲的Woolworths,以及泰國卜蜂聯同私募基金凱雷的財團之爭。市傳Woolworths願意出價最多30億美元(約234億港元),惟消息稱有關作價仍未落實。卜蜂在早輪時段出價一度屬最高,有指加入凱雷後亦為其競購增添不少勝算。
競購結果月內出爐

消息人士表示,Woolworths是聘請野村擔任財務顧問,而卜蜂及凱雷財團的代表是花旗及瑞銀,雙方將會在下周前作出最後一輪的出價,料競購結果有機會在月內可出爐。對於市傳Woolworths願意最高出價30億美元,消息強調作價未有最後定案,仍存在變數。
至於另外的競購者,尚有來自日本的超市連鎖集團永旺,但早前有報道指,永旺認為百佳的作價太高,故現時出價已不太積極。另外,在中、港兩地經營華潤萬家超市的華創(291),據悉仍有機會出價,但估算其競購成功機會偏低,市傳其母公司華潤集團亦不太支持華創收購百佳,令情況更撲朔迷離。
和黃出售百佳的意向價為30億至40億美元,早前就有報道指,各競購方的出價都較和黃的心水價尚有一段距離。
昨日澳洲報章《The Australian Financial Review》就引述消息指,Woolworths願意用相當於百佳EBITDA(除息、稅、折舊及攤銷前盈利)約15至16倍的價錢,收購百佳,作價介乎28至30億美元。去年百佳的EBITDA為12.5億港元。該報章指,如Woolworths成功投得百佳,將會是集團有史以來最大宗的收購。

Hutchison Whampoa, controlled by Hong Kong’s richest man Li Ka-shing, has scrapped the sale of ParknShop, Hong Kong's largest supermarket chain by market share.

The company said that, after completing an initial strategic review with advisors Goldman Sachs and Bank of America Merrill Lynch, a sale of ParknShop by a private market transaction “would not deliver maximum value" to the shareholders of the company.

Hutchison was seeking $3 billion-$4 billion for the supermarket chain, which was deemed to be steep for a mature market such as Hong Kong, and one that faces expensive rents.

According to one source, there was a mismatch in valuations between what Hutchison was looking for and what bidders were prepared to pay, and Hutchison was disciplined as to the price it was willing to accept.

Bidders for ParknShop included CP Group - controlled by Thai billionaire Dhanin Chearavanont – which was teaming up with private equity firm Carlyle; Australian retailer Woolworths and Japanese retail Aeon. At least one bidder -- China Resources Enterprises -- had pulled out because it was not comfortable with the asking price.

Hutchison said it would continue to implement an “accelerated growth strategy with a particular focus in mainland China." Having not achieved the kind of valuations it was looking for through a private sale, it hinted that it could potentially list AS Watson, the division that owns ParknShop, instead.

In a statement to the Hong Kong stock exchange on Friday, Hutchison said it has decided to expand its strategic review process to include options for maximising the value of the AS Watson retail businesses going forward. This includes the possibility of public offerings of “all or some of those businesses," it added. It also said that Hutchison would not consider giving up control of any of the businesses.

A move to list AS Watson but retain a stake would be in line with that adopted by Power Assets Holding, which is also controlled by Li Ka-shing. Power Assets announced late September that it was spinning off its Hong Kong Electricity arm through a business trust listing.
