麦当劳发行人民币债券,旨在扩大在华业务 McDonald's Dishing Out Yuan Bonds; Eyes Expansion in China

19 August, 2010

麦当劳连锁店在用人民币而不是美元筹集资金。

这家世界上最大的快餐公司星期四在香港发售了总额2千9百万美元的人民币债券。

麦当劳说,这是一家跨国公司用中国的货币发行债券的首个案例。

麦当劳亚太、中东和非洲部总裁说,这笔资金将用来扩大该公司在中国的业务。

麦当劳在中国大陆已经有1100家餐馆和6万多名雇员。它计划今年在中国至少再开150家店。

这个月早些时候,这家连锁餐馆说,7月份的销售额增加了7%,部分是因为亚洲地区麦当劳餐馆业绩表现强劲。

The McDonald's restaurant chain is raising money using China's yuan currency instead of U.S. dollars.

The world's largest fast-food company sold $29 million worth of yuan-denominated bonds in Hong Kong on Thursday.

McDonald's said this is the first time a multinational company has sold bonds using China's currency.

The president of McDonald's Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa division said the money will be used to expand the company's presence in China.

McDonald's already has 1,100 stores in mainland China and more than 60,000 employees. It plans to open at least another 150 restaurants in China this year.

Earlier this month, the restaurant chain said its sales rose 7 percent in July due in part to strong performance by its Asian stores.
