  • 報告:ByteDance正在透過新的 30 億美元貸款為債務再融資

      202110/0803:27

    ◎今年早些時候,ByteDance透露2020 年的收入翻了一倍多,達到 343 億美元,儘管它也出現21 億美元的營運虧損。現在Reuters報導,ByteDance “正在與華爾街銀行進行談判,貸款30 億美元為其債務再融資”。
    ◎報告暗示這是一項“利用當前低利率償還債務”的計劃,而不是疲軟的跡象。 30 億美元的數字可能不是一成不變的:Bloomberg聲稱它可能是 40 億美元,而 The Information 暗示它可能高達 50 億美元。
    ◎所有這一切都發生在ByteDance之前曾被暗示通過 IPO 上市的時刻。目前,這似乎是次要的,因為中國所有大型科技公司都處於不確定的時期,中國政府正透過各種新法規對它們進行嚴厲打擊。
    ◎8 月,中國政府持有ByteDance在中國主要子公司的少數股權和董事會席位。

    詳細全文:

    Earlier this year, ByteDance revealed that its revenues more than doubled to $34.3bn in 2020, although it also recorded an operating loss of $2.1bn. Now Reuters claims that ByteDance is “in talks with Wall Street banks to borrow more than $3 billion to refinance its debt”.
    Rather than a sign of weakness, the report suggested that that it is a plan to “take advantage of currently low interest rates to repay its debt”. The $3bn figure may not be set in stone: Bloomberg claimed it may be $4bn, while The Information suggested it could go as high as $5bn.
    All this is happening at a point where ByteDance had been previously tipped to be going public via an IPO. That appears to be on the back burner for now, at an uncertain time for all of China’s big technology companies with the government there coming down on them hard with various new regulations.
    In August, the Chinese government took a minority stake and board seat in ByteDance’s main subsidiary in China.
