Yuexiu Property Ratings Placed On CreditWatch Negative On Potential Weakening Of Group Credit Profile Stcoks—01 Mar 17

HONG KONG--1 Mar--S&P Global Ratings

HONG KONG (S&P Global Ratings) March 1, 2017--S&P Global Ratings today placed its 'BBB-' long-term corporate credit rating and 'cnBBB+' long-term Greater China regional scale rating on China-based Yuexiu Property Co. Ltd. on CreditWatch with negative implications.

We placed our ratings on Yuexiu Property on CreditWatch with negative implications to reflect a high likelihood that a deterioration in the company's leverage will weaken the credit profile of its parent, Guangzhou Yuexiu Holdings Ltd. As a core subsidiary, Yuexiu Property contributes a significant 70% of the parent's non-financial-service EBITDA. The rating on Yuexiu Property is equalized to the group credit profile of the parent.

In our view, Yuexiu Property's leverage is likely to stay elevated in the next 12 months, after it further deteriorated in 2016, against our expectation of a modest improvement. Yuexiu Property's debt-to-EBITDA ratio increased to 9.4x in 2016, from 8.2x in 2015. Its EBITDA interest coverage also weakened to 2.1x, compared with 2.5x a year earlier, despite lower funding costs.

We expect Yuexiu Property to remain active in land purchases in 2017, given that it targets contracted sales of Chinese renminbi (RMB) 50 billion by 2020. The company spent more than RMB11 billion in 2016, exceeding
