China Hongqiao #B# Rating Affirmed On Publication Of Financial Outlook Off CreditWatch Stcoks—22 Nov 17

HONG KONG--22 Nov--S&P Global Ratings

HONG KONG (S&P Global Ratings) Nov. 22, 2017--S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'B' long-term corporate credit rating on China Hongqiao Group Ltd. (Hongqiao). The outlook is stable. We also affirmed our 'B-' long-term issue rating on the company's outstanding senior unsecured notes. We removed all the ratings from CreditWatch, where they were placed with negative implications on March 24, 2017.

We affirmed the ratings and removed them from CreditWatch after Hongqiao published its 2016 annual report and financial statements with an unqualified auditor's opinion. At the same time, the company also published a report refuting the allegations of accounting irregularities from a short-seller research firm.

We expect Hongqiao's financial position to improve due to favorable aluminum prices and the company's lower capital spending. We also anticipate that Hongqiao will have the financial resources to refinance its short-term maturities, thanks to an increase in funding from a number of Chinese banks.

In our view, the support from Chinese banks would help to restore investor confidence in Hongqiao and reduce the potential negative impact of any further campaign by short-seller firms.
On Oct. 25, 2017, Hongqiao published a clarification report related to short-seller Em
