HCMC - The Government’s investment arm, State Capital Investment Corporation (SCIC), plans to invest VND8 trillion in Vietnam Airlines, SCIC general director Nguyen Chi Thanh announced on January 14.

In accordance with the Government’s Resolution 194 on supporting Vietnam Airlines to overcome difficulties caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, the national flag carrier will issue shares to its existing stakeholders to raise its charter capital. SCIC would represent the Government, which owns 86% of the national flag carrier, to buy the shares.

Thanh said Vietnam Airlines is drawing up the share issuance plan, which will be submitted to the State Securities Commission of Vietnam for consideration, and working with SCIC to determine the issue price.

According to the SCIC leader, to determine the issue price, Vietnam Airlines and SCIC have to evaluate the carrier’s enterprise value, which is based on its business plan for the next at least five years.

“The Covid-19 pandemic is still developing complicatedly globally, making it hard to determine Vietnam Airlines’ business plan. We cannot evaluate the carrier’s enterprise value without the business plan,” Thanh said.

SCIC has selected a world-renowned audit firm to help evaluate the enterprise value of Vietnam Airlines. SCIC is also working with the airline, the Commission for the Management of State Capital at Enterprises and other relevant agencies to ensure effective, careful and lawful investment in Vietnam Airlines.
