CAO Sells Part of 80 Percent Stake in Subsidiary


China Aviation Oil has sold 41 percent of its 80 percent stake in China Aviation Oil Xinyuan Petrochemicals Co. Ltd to another existing Xinyuan shareholder Shenzhen Juzhengyuan
Petrolchemical Co. Ltd.

With this transaction worth a total of RMB 20.5m, Xinyuan is no longer a subsidiary of CAO.

CAO also plans to enter a joint venture with Juzhengyuan and CNAF to govern and develop the businesses of Xinyuan.

The Company was incorporated in Singapore on 26 May 1993. It became a public company on 6 December 2001 and changed its name from China Aviation Oil (S) Pte Ltd to China Aviation Oil (S) Corporation Ltd ('CAO'). CAO was conferred the Approved Oil Trader (AOT) award (which was later changed to Member of the Global Trader Programme) by the Government of Singapore in 1998.

The largest shareholder of CAO is China Aviation Oil Supply Corporation ('CAOSC'), one of the largest state-owned enterprises in China. CAOSC is responsible for the construction of aviation oil supply infrastructure, purchase of aviation oil supply equipment and the supply of jet fuel to over 100 foreign and domestic airlines (including the purchase, transportation, storage, and into-plane services of jet fuel) at more than 100 civil airports throughout China.

CAO's main business includes Jet Fuel Procurement, International Oil Trading and Oil-related investment. CAO has established a 'three-pronged' strategy, that embrace, 'Strengthen the import jet fuel procurement, Expand International Oil trading business and Develop oil-related investment.' Imported jet fuel procurement is the core business and base of CAO, whilst international oil trading will not only expand CAO's scale but also improve its profits, oil-related investments will ensure CAO continues to achieve steady growth.

Presently, CAO has close to 100 percent market share of the procurement of imported jet fuel for the civil aviation industry in China. CAO succeeded in conducting international oil trade in jet fuel, fuel oil, gas oil, crude oil, petrochemical products and oil derivatives. The company has also expanded its market beyond China to ASEAN countries, Far East and America etc. In April 2002, CAO was successful through an exclusive tender exercise, to secure an offer to invest in Spanish oil logistic and facilities company CLH, which is a leading oil carrier and owner of the largest network of oil pipelines and storage.
