Dasin Retail Trust’s price action suggests that the either the refinancing or the loan extension of the almost $500 million of loans that mature on July 18 has been successful. Of the $500 million, $419.5 million is offshore debt, and $80.1 million is onshore debt.

Dasin Retail Trust’s rebound in price, from a low of 46 cents to the close of 50.5 cents took place in the afternoon of July 16. During the morning, Dasin Retail Trust’s unit price remained weak. Even with the rebound, prices are still down 36% this year, and the stock is trading at just 0.35 times its net asset value - as at Dec 31, 2020 - of $1.41.

On July 5, Dasin’s manager announced that the trust’s sponsor and major unitholder Zhang Zhencheng signed a non-binding memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Sino-Ocean Capital Holding. An earlier non-binding MOU with ARA Asset Management was called off. The Sino-Ocean transaction includes the Chinese SOE taking a stake in the trust such that it would hold around 25% of the trust. Currently, Sino-Ocean owns 6.25% of Dasin.
