China's securities regulator is considering scrapping profitability requirements in mergers and acquisitions (M&A;) for listed companies, as a way to facilitate secondary fundraising as the trade war weighs on Chinese growth and threatens to push the global economy into recession next year.Under consideration is an amendment to remove profitability requirements in M&A; deals involving listed companies, the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) said in a statement issued on its official website late Thursday.The regulator also invited the public to comment on the proposals unveiled Thursday.The proposed revisions also include easing fundraising restrictions for listed firms as a way to help boost cash flow, as well as support for back-door listings by hi-tech companies on the start-up board ChiNext."We believe, amid the continued loosening of policies, China's onshore M&A; market is to revive after cooling for more than two years. This will help direct financing by companies," analysts at Essence Securities said in a research note on Friday morning.The proposed changes are an institutional improvement that will lead to big benefits for the ChiNext market, Chinese brokerage Citic Securities said."The policy will be a strong sentiment boost to the ChiNext board in the short term," Citic analysts led by Qin Peijing wrote in a report Friday.Bolstered by the easing signal, the ChiNext Index, tracking leading technology companies in Shenzhen, rose 1.7 per cent to close at 1,523.8 on Friday.The CSRC tightened M&A; and restructuring rules in 2016, as a way to curb stock speculation following the equity market crash in the summer of 2015. After the policy revision, listed companies needed to pass comprehensive scrutiny to get regulatory approval for restructuring. These included requirements on total assets, net assets, revenue and profit.The authority also tightened approval for fundraising related to restructuring after 2016. As a result, the CSRC approved 267 secondary share placements in the year of 2018, sharply down from 813 in 2016 and 540 in 2017, according to financial data from Wind.With additional reporting by Yuijing Liu.This article originally appeared in the South China Morning Post (SCMP), the most authoritative voice reporting on China and Asia for more than a century.

SINGAPORE/Hong Kong, March 21 (Reuters) - CITIC Securities Co Ltd, China's biggest brokerage by market value, reported an 18 percent fall in 2018 net profit on Thursday amid a weak domestic stock market. Its net profit for the year dropped to 9.4 billion yuan ($1.41 billion) from 11.4 billion yuan a year earlier, the company said in a stock exchange filing, and was in line with preliminary results released in January.

The chief executive of brokerage CLSA has resigned with more management change likely amid differences over strategy with Chinese parent CITIC Securities Co Ltd (CITIC), people with direct knowledge of the matter said. Jonathan Slone's departure comes just two weeks after CLSA Chairman Tang Zhenyi resigned from the Asia-focused broker, bought by state-backed CITIC in 2013.
CLSA Ltd. once earned that proud moniker from its former chief executive officer, Jonathan Slone, for its nonconformist research ideas. After a decade as CEO and 30 years at the brokerage, Slone this week became the latest and the most high-profile departure, closely following former Chairman Tang Zhenyi. You can rightly blame the broader challenges facing the research industry, or a culture clash between a largely Western-run house and its Chinese state-owned parent, Citic Securities Co. But ultimately the mass exodus from what was once one of Asia’s top brokerages comes down to its mission: How do you publish independent analysis when your ultimate owner is a government with a tightening grip on your message?

China's leading brokerage Citic Securities issued a rare "sell" rating on the Shanghai-listed shares of People's Insurance Group of China (PICC) citing frothy valuations, knocking the stock down and sending ripples across the broader market. The report also forecast that PICC's yuan-denominated A-shares could slump by more than half over the next 12 months, correcting after their value doubled in the past two weeks. "PICC's A-shares are evidently over-valued, and we give the stock 'sell' rating for the first time," Citic Securities said in the report, which was published late on Thursday.
On Thursday evening, Citic Securities Co. advised clients that People’s Insurance Co. (Group) of China Ltd., a $65 billion giant, could decline more than 50 percent over the next year. Shortly after Citic’s note, Huatai Securities Co. cut its rating on CSC Financial Co., a fellow brokerage. Separately, the state-owned China Securities Journal said in a front-page editorial that sell ratings must become “normal” in the future.
