Banyan Tree and China Vanke will set up Banyan Tree China (BTC), a joint venture with capital of RMB 2 billion to develop and manage new hospitality, senior living and wellness projects.

Singapore-based hotel company Banyan Tree Holdings is forming a "strategic partnership" with Chinese developer Vanke to boost its expansion in China.

The hotelier is tying up with Vanke to set up Banyan Tree China (BTC), a joint venture with an estimated initial paid-up capital of up to RMB 2 billion (SGD 414.2 million). ​The joint venture will develop and manage new hospitality, senior living and wellness projects.

BTC will initially be a 50:50 joint venture through the injection of Banyan Tree Holdings' assets in China, which have a book value of about RMB 720 million. 

These will include three assets fully owned by the hospitality company - Banyan Tree Lijiang, Banyan Tree Ringha and Laguna Chengdu, which is still under development and will feature a Banyan Tree property.
The proposed deal will involve BTC owning 40% of Banyan Tree's hotel management company in China.

Banyan Tree Holdings will also issue shares amounting to SGD 25 million to Vanke by private placement at 60 cents apiece, giving Vanke a stake of about 5%. Vanke will nominate one director to the Banyan Tree Holdings board.
