Credit Rating Agencies Slash Ratings

Despite China's stimulus and efforts to calm investors on Wednesday, credit rating agencies took action against Sunac and Logan Group.

Sunac was downgraded last week by S&P credit rating agency. Logan Group, a well-known real estate investment company in China has been downgraded by Moody's credit rating agency to Caa2.

"Logan has large debt maturities coming due or puttable by the end of 2022 at the holding company level, including RMB9.8 billion of onshore (including puttable) and USD300 million of offshore bonds.

"Moody's estimates that the company will still face a liquidity gap considering its sizable debt maturity, despite its asset disposal plan for its debt repayment.

"Moody's expects a significant part of Logan's cash to be held at the project level to be used for project-level debt repayment and construction expenses.

"As a result, Logan will not have sufficient cash at the holding company level to service its maturing debt, absent any new fundraising activities amid the tight funding environment and weak investor confidence.

"The risk of default or debt restructuring has increased. Moody's forecasts that Logan's contracted sales will decline significantly over the next 6-12 months, driven by weak homebuyer confidence and diminishing saleable resources.

"This will weaken its operating cash flow, and in turn, its liquidity. Logan's operating scale will shrink if further asset disposals occur.

"Logan's contracted sales fell 44% and 65% in January 2022 and February 2022, respectively, from the same periods a year ago. These levels of sales decline are weaker than the industry average."

There are growing expectations for the People's Bank of China (PBOC) to slash rates in April. The reserve requirements ratio may be cut as well.

It is still early to determine whether the chaos in China's real estate market will spillover to other markets. If the PBOC will loosen its monetary policy, it may then begin reflecting in other markets.
