Case Studies

Vanke wished to transfer its share listing from Shenzhen to Hong Kong for strategic purposes. In line with Hong Kong Exchange’s listing rules, such a move required the services of CAA to perform valuations on the company’s properties. Vanke’s extensive property portfolio covered 195 developments across 51 cities in China with total value of over US$43billion.

Philips’ global TV manufacturing operations were placed under a joint venture named TP Vision, initially majority-owned and now fully-owned by TPV Technology – a Hong Kong listed company. In order to consolidate the parent and the subsidiary companies’ books, a report was required to fair value trademarks, R&D projects, financial instruments, plant and machinery and the inventory of the joint venture company. These elements were in different jurisdictions yet CAA provided these valuation services with a total value of over US$1.3billion. We supported Corporate Solutions to fulfil their client’s needs and thank them for referring and directing us to this engagement.​

Alibaba appointed CAA as their property valuer for financial reporting purposes concerning their selection of properties within China. They needed a well-coordinated valuer with presence, scale and a hybrid accounting / real estate expertise to consider their property portfolio. CAA, working alongside China Desk is thrilled to have won an engagement with one of the world’s leading e-commerce companies.
