Shandong Qiaochang Delays Listing Plan Due to Suspension of SFH

Shandong Qiaochang plans to get listed by assets reorganization towards SFH, a listed real estate company, which means that the assets exchange and stock issue will be achieved between Shandong Qiaochang and SFH, and Shandong Qiaochang's agrochemical businesses, including dominant herbicide, will be injected into SFH.

Unfortunately, the integration plan failed finally due to the suspension of SFH's stock trade.  According to SFH's announcement, the suspension is because of the sharp influence made by Chinese government's real estate regulations. Therefore, the two companies hung up the reorganization and SFH restored transaction in the share market on Aug. 9th, 2011, thirty five days after its stock suspension. What's more, SFH declared in the announcement that it wouldn't plan the reorganization within the future three months.

Except the influence of the governmental real estate regulations, there are also many difficulties that hinder the listing plan of Shandong Qiaochang, if Shandong Qiaochang adopts current method of assets reorganization towards listed real estate companies. For example, weak R&D, overcapacity in domestic market and overwhelming competition from overseas agrochemical giants all force Chinese pesticide companies to enhance their competitiveness constantly.

It requires domestic pesticide companies including Shandong Qiaochang, must explore new ways to arm themselves immediately, such as integration, getting listed or cooperation. Moreover, Chinese pesticide companies also need strong competitiveness to face challenges.
