Under the agreements, CDB is expected to support Ming Yang in its strategic and financial planning by granting Ming Yang up to US$5 billion (or equivalent in other currencies) in potential financings, including loans and credit facilities between 2011 and 2015, and by actively participating in the Company’s medium-to-long term development planning. The potential financings may be used for a range of potential domestic and overseas business activities including the Company’s on-shore and off-shore wind power businesses, supply chain integration and working capital management. CDB, its branches and subsidiaries would also be available to provide Ming Yang with other financial services including financial advisory, investment banking and finance leasing services.
The Company cautions that any future financings from CBD are subject to further terms and conditions to be negotiated between Ming Yang and CDB, and there can be no assurance how much or when, if at all, any future financings would be granted.
“We are very pleased with CDB’s support and confidence in Ming Yang,” said Mr. Zhang Chuanwei, chairman and chief executive officer of Ming Yang. “Against the current macroeconomic background, we believe Ming Yang’s arrangements for US$5 billion of potential financings from CDB demonstrate strong financial support for our wind power projects, business expansion and working capital funding needs, and help us to drive business model innovation and to pursue opportunities as a world-class wind power total solution provider.”
