China Everbright Limited Completed Acquisition of 100% Shares in Tirana International Airport

HONG KONG, Oct 7, 2016 - (ACN Newswire) - China Everbright Limited ("CEL", stock code: 165.HK) is pleased to announce that it has completed the acquisition of 100% shares in Tirana International Airport SHPK ("TIA"), after having signed the sale and purchase agreement in April this year. TIA owns the concession right to operate the Tirana International Airport until 2027.


Tirana International Airport is Albania's most important transport hub, and is one of the fastest growing airports in Europe. Number of passengers increased from 600,000 in 2005 to 2 million in 2015. The airport itself is a testimony to Albania's rapid economic development.

Mr. Chen Shuang, Executive Director and CEO of CEL said, "Thanks to the support of Albania government and TIA's management team, CEL is delighted to have completed the acquisition of the Tirana International Airport. The acquisition is a proactive corporate approach to identify good infrastructure investment opportunities, which is in line with China's 'One Belt, One Road' Initiative. It also signs the first move of China Everbright Overseas Infrastructure Fund which is in the process of establishing. With CEL's support and resources, TIA can further upgrade their facilities and hardware meeting excellence in all aspects. Also, leveraging on CEL's extensive networks in China, we believe that trading and tourism between the two countries will be further promoted. Therefore, this acquisition is of great significance and value."

CEL is experienced in the aviation industry and is the single largest shareholder of the Hong Kong-listed China Aircraft Leasing Group Holdings Limited (stock code: 1848.HK).

"We are thrilled to announce an era of transformation with China Everbright Limited," said Mr Rolf Castro-Vasquez, CEO of TIA. "The current shareholders and all employees have proudly developed the airport and served its passengers, providing state-of-the-art facilities. We look forward to further growth under the new shareholder China Everbright Limited, by delivering what our travellers need and wish for," he added.

China is currently Albania's second largest trading partner. Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama have pledged to enhance infrastructure cooperation of the two countries at the fourth leaders' meeting between China and Central and Eastern European countries ("China-CEE Leaders' Meeting") held in November 2015. China supports domestic companies in actively participating in Albania's economic development while Albania is keen to expand cooperation in agricultural trade and tourism and plans to streamline visa access for Chinese people.
