马来西亚区块链债券发行被取消

2020-11-24 19:30

 

马来西亚新成立的区块链债券发行平台扶桑证券交易所(Fusang Exchange)宣布,其首批债券发行已被取消。长期债券最初的发行规模为1,400万美元,整体数字高达30亿美元。债券收益将以现金存款形式存入中国建设银行(CCB)纳闽分行的信托账户。


11月13日(周五),建行对有关其并非债券发行者的媒体报道做出了回应。该债券将由一个名为LongBond的特殊目的机构发行,银行将担任牵头安排和上市顾问。


随后,在上周五,也就是11月20日,扶桑证券交易所宣布取消发行计划,“将重新评估整个债券发行计划”。该公司表示,取消认购是通过作为上市保荐人的中国建设银行传达的,没有提供进一步的理由。


“该银行没有给出停牌的原因,扶桑首席执行官钟瑞祥(Henry Chong)说,”这是援引路透社(Reuters)的一篇报道。


不过,扶桑交易所的董事长是David Chong。他还被列为Gurker (Labuan)有限公司的代表,该公司是发行人长期债券(LongBond)的唯一董事。扶桑交易所、朗邦证券、董事Gurker(纳闽)和股份受托人Baixan Trust(纳闽)都有相同的物理地址。


最低认购金额是1000万美元,所以可能看起来不太可能实现。


或者是建行临阵退缩了。扶桑交易所宣传了30亿美元的数字,尽管最初的发行计划规模要小得多。它还吹嘘了与中国建设银行(CCB)的合作,以及代币可以用比特币结算的事实,而建行表示不接受比特币。对于纳闽建行来说,这一举措最初可能是令人满意的,但当这一消息被更广泛地报道并传到中国时,它可能没有得到很好的接受。

 

Fusang Exchange, a new Malaysian blockchain bond issuance platform, has announced that its first bond issuance has been canceled. The LongBond issuance was initially to be $14 million with a headline figure of up to $3 billion. The bond proceeds were to be held as cash deposits in trust accounts at the Labuan branch of China Construction Bank (CCB).

On Friday the 13th of November, CCB reacted to press reports that it was not the bond issuer. The bond was to be issued by a special purpose vehicle, LongBond, with the bank acting as lead arranger and listing advisor.

Then this past Friday, the 20th of November, Fusang Exchange announced that the proposed issuance was canceled and that the “overall bond issuance programme is being re-evaluated.” It said the cancellation was communicated via CCB acting as listing sponsor, with no further reasons provided.

“The bank did not give a reason for the suspension, Fusang Chief Executive Henry Chong said,” is a quote from a Reuters report. 

However, the chairman of Fusang Exchange is David Chong. He is also listed as the representative of Gurker (Labuan) Limited, which acts as sole corporate director for LongBond, the issuer. Fusang Exchange, LongBond, the director Gurker (Labuan), and the share trustee Baixan Trust (Labuan) all have the same physical address. 

There was a minimum subscription amount of $10 million, so perhaps it didn’t look like it would be met.

Or maybe CCB had cold feet. Fusang Exchange promoted the headline $3 billion figure, despite the initial far smaller planned issuance. It also touted the association with China Construction Bank (CCB) and the fact that the tokens could be settled with Bitcoin, which CCB said it does not accept. This may have been palatable for the Labuan CCB branch initially, but perhaps it didn’t sit well when it was more widely reported and the news reached China.
