Debt-asset ratio at China's central SOEs falls in Q1

April 16, 2019


Abstract : The debt-to-asset ratio at China's central state-owned enterprises (SOEs) continued to head downwards in the first quarter of 2019 as regulators took measures to contain debt in the sector, official data showed Tuesday.

BEIJING, April 16 (Xinhua) -- The debt-to-asset ratio at China's central state-owned enterprises (SOEs) continued to head downwards in the first quarter of 2019 as regulators took measures to contain debt in the sector, official data showed Tuesday.

By the end of March, central SOEs' average debt-to-assets ratio stood at 65.7 percent, down 0.2 percentage points from the same period last year, according to the State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission (SASAC) .

Their average ratio of interest-bearing liability to assets stood at 40.2 percent, decreasing 0.3 percentage points from a year ago.

As central authorities have made curbing financial risks an economic priority, SASAC has put the capital structure, financing leverage, investment and risk of central SOEs under greater scrutiny in recent years.

China has set a timetable for SOEs deleveraging as part of its efforts to defuse financial risks.

The average debt-to-asset ratio of SOEs should be reduced by 2 percentage points by the end of 2020, as compared with that at the end of 2017, according to guidelines released by the general offices of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and the State Council in September 2018.
