Big investment fund keeps pouring money into Vietnamese companies

Vietnamnet

Foreign investors are still grabbing every opportunity to buy shares in Vietnam. The group of investment funds managed by Dragon Capital has announced the purchase of 813,110 GEX shares (Vietnam Electrical Equipment JSC) to raise the total number of shares it holds to 13.6 million, becoming a big shareholder with 5.05 percent of shares. In the last few months, Dragon Capital has poured money into Vietnamese leading brands such as Vinhomes (VHM), Sabeco, Masan Group (MSN), PNJ, CEN Land and Binh Son Refinery (BSR). The investment portfolio managed by Dragon Capital in Vietnam is valued at billions of dollars, a large proportion of which has been poured into leading real estate firms such as VinHomes, Khang Dien, Dat Xanh, CEN Land, Hai Phat, Kinh Bac City and Ha Do. Tran Van Dung, chair of the State Securities Commission (SSC), when interviewed By Thoi Bao Tai Chinh Vietnam on June 20, affirmed that foreign cash ‘still seeks opportunities for disbursement in Vietnam’. From January 1 to June 12, 2018, the net inflow was estimated at $2.41 billion (it was $2.9 billion in 2017). The strongest capital flow was seen in April and May.

 

 

Vietnamese firms get the hang of mergers, acquisitions

VnExpress

A new report by the Vietnam M&A Forum shows that Vietnamese buyers are getting more involved in M&As’ deals. This rise of participation highlights the growth of Vietnamese local investors as they are using M&As “as a ticket to growth” by acting as a seller and a buyer. Even though, foreign investors still lead the market in M&As the future for Vietnam is bright as they will soon be able to work alongside with the foreign investors.

Investment rate in Vietnam hotel sector increases 

Vir

HCMC is leading the country in the number of foreign travelers, amounting to 50% of the total to Vietnam. However, it lags behind other localities in the development of hotels. This is attributed to the lack of land, especially land plots in areas with developed infrastructure and in central business districts, where investors can expect high business efficiency when developing projects. The room rate of a 5-star hotel in district 1 is $20 per night higher than that in district 5. The room occupancy in central business districts is also higher, thus bringing more profit. That is why hotel developers seek advantageous positions, though the investment rate is much higher.
