New year, new companies

* This week, six real estate companies have been reported in various stops in the going-public route.

Countdown begins: Two Hong Kong IPOs are on the calendar now, with Shanghai-based Zhenro Properties Group Ltd. targeting about HK$3.74 billion and Thing On Enterprise Ltd. up to HK$223.2 million.

Zhenro, a diversified property developer with an estimated 7.79 billion-yuan portfolio, and Thing On Enterprise, a local property investor, both expect to debut on the Hong Kong stock exchange Jan. 16, 2018.

Meanwhile, two other companies have expressed intentions to list in the coming year, but no concrete plans yet. Blackstone Group LP-backed K. Raheja Corp. is eyeing a real estate investment trust listing in India and Property Exchange Australia Ltd. might be pursuing a A$1 billion IPO in Australia.

On the other hand, two REITs listed in Thailand this week. Strategic Hospitality Extendable Freehold and Leasehold Real Estate Investment Trust debuted Dec. 27, making it the first foreign hospitality REIT to be listed on The Stock Exchange of Thailand.

A day later, TICON Freehold and Leasehold REIT made its debut. It is the biggest industrial REIT in the country and was formed from Ticon Industrial Connection Pcl's combination and conversion of its three property funds.

Singaporeans celebrate abroad

DLF closes a chapter
