Hutch docks euro bond after issuance drought

Li Ka-shing's ports-to-telecoms conglomerate raises €2 billion through the sale of a dual-tranche euro-denominated bond.

CK Hutchison Holdings, controlled by Hong Kong billionaire Li Ka-shing, ended an 18-month issuance drought on Tuesday with a 2 billion $2.27 billion euro-denominated bond offering.

The deal marks the first transaction since Hutchison Whampoa and Cheung Kong Holdings were formally merged in March 2015, creating a blue chip conglomerate that operates across ports, telecoms, retail, energy and infrastructure.

For most of the past two decades Hutch has been Asia’s pre-eminent international borrower with a very strong reputation for leaving a few basis points on the tables so its deals trade well in the secondary market.
