THE SHARE PRICE of SIIC Environment Holdings jumped 9.3% yesterday to 16.4 cents on news of its proposed acquisition of 100% of Global Envirotech Investment for RMB1.548 billion, which includes the repayment of a debt of RMB479,180,000.

The vendor is Global Environment Investment.

The target company owns all of Global Environment Investment (HK), which in turn owns 92.15% of Fudan Water Engineering and Technology Co. 

The target company and the HK company are investment holding companies.

"In addition, the location of the target group has a strategic significance to the group as it would potentially serve as a platform for the group to secure more opportunities in the respective regions."

The net profit attributable to the 92.15% equity interest in Fudan Water Group for 2014, based on PRC unaudited management accounts, amounted to RMB89.4 million.

Had the acquisition been effected on 1 January 2014, the earnings per share of SIIC would have risen from 2.90 RMB cents to 3.31 RMB cents.

That translates into a PE of about 23X based on the recent stock price of 16.4 cents.
