野村銀行がSCFのブックを購入

アサヒのチャーリーズとインデペンデントリカーの買収の影に隠れて、ある日本の企業が、ニュージーランド金融史に残るサウスカンタベリーファイナンスのブックを購入しています。

要約すると、野村が$123ミリオンの価値に相当するSCFの優良債権を$80ミリオン以下で購入したのではないか、と労働党から指摘されています。通常、このような高額の取り引きが海外企業と行われるときは、政府がシリアスフラウドオフィス(SFO)を通じてそのプロセスを監視するはずなのですが、それがされないまま、購入が決定してしまった、ちょっと不可思議な取り引きとなっているようです。SCFは昨年、$1.7ビリオンもの税金を投入して救済されていたため、野村へ不当に低い価格で優良債権を購入させたことが事実ならば、それは税金の無駄遣いであり、調査の必要性があるとしています。

これが報じられた後、国民党が反論をしていないので、真相は闇の中になるかもしれません。

The taxpayer's final bill for bailing out South Canterbury Finance investors may increase yet again after its receivers sold key assets at what is understood to be a bargain price to the Japanese bank Nomura. Allan Hubbard's South Canterbury Finance went into receivership last year, prompting a $1.7 billion call on the Government's deposit guarantee scheme. Initial Government estimates of a $600 million net loss to the taxpayer after the company's assets were sold have proved optimistic - the most recent forecast is $1.2 billion. The company's receivers, Kerryn Downey and William Black of McGrathNicol, said yesterday that South Canterbury's core business, rural and consumer loans - which together made up the balance of the company's "good bank" or unimpaired loans, and were valued at $123 million - had been sold to Nomura for a confidential sum. The Herald understands Nomura paid just under $80 million, although Mr Black said that figure was wide of the mark.

He would not say whether the price was higher or lower but confirmed Nomura did not have to secure Overseas Investment Office approval, needed for transactions above $100 million. The sale was an excellent outcome and was another important step in maximising the return for the Crown. Finance Minister Bill English said it was yet to be seen if the Government faced a bigger loss than the $1.2 billion net loss set out in the Crown's latest update, but there was no reason yet to change that estimate. Labour finance spokesman David Cunliffe called on the Government to reveal yesterday's sale price and say whether it met expectations.
