Avmax Sold to China's Sunward Intelligent Equipment



China's Sunward buys Canada's Avmax to diversify into aviation


Chinese construction equipment maker Sunward Intelligent Equipment Co (002097.SZ) said it has bought Canadian aviation services provider Avmax Group, which has assets of up to $312 million, amid a sustained downturn in the construction machinery market.

Sunward closed the deal with Avmax's biggest shareholder in mid-September, but the pricing has yet to be finalised based on Avmax's future performance, among other factors, Sunward said in a stock exchanging filing late on Monday.

Sunward will raise up to 2.2 billion yuan ($347.24 million)via a private placement arrangement of shares to fund the acquisition, it added.

The deal would give Sunward a share of China's fast growing aviation market, including regional aviation and jet leasing sectors, the statement said, by bringing Avmax's expertise to the country.
Avmax, based in Calgary, maintains facilities in Vancouver and Montreal, as well as in the United States, Kenya and Chad. Besides a leasing and operations business, Avmax also offers avionics, component repairs and engineering services.

Sunward's bigger rival Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science and Technology (000157.SZ) is also diversifying into farm machinery sector amid a supply glut of construction equipment at home and some overseas markets.
Sunward started making small drones as early as 2010. It also invested in the jet engine business.

Cityjet to Operate Eight New CRJ-900s for Scandinavian Airlines






SAS has entered into an agreement with Cityjet on the wet lease of eight new Bombardier CRJ900s. SAS already operates twelve regional jet aircraft of this type through its subsidiary, Cimber.
“We are looking forward to working with Cityjet to further expand our regional route network and thereby strengthen SAS’s offering to frequent travelers. The eight brand new CRJ900s from Cityjet will provide us with efficient and flexible production of regional flights that will complement SAS’s production on the larger traffic flows,” says Rickard Gustafson, President and CEO at SAS.
The new aircraft, which each have 90 seats and are painted in SAS colors, will be put into service from March 2016 on routes and at times when there is a need for smaller aircraft. The wet lease agreement is for three years and covers eight Bombardier CRJ900s with an option on a further six aircraft.
