History

Our Group's history dates back to the year of 2012 when our Company was incorporated in Hong Kong to serve as the sole leasing company under CSSC Group, which is a leading state-owned shipbuilding conglomerate in the PRC. As the first shipyard-affiliated leasing company in Greater China, we leverage our unique insights into the marine industry and offer customised ship leasing solutions to customers.

In order to capture the business opportunities brought about by the increasing demand for ship leasing services in the PRC, CSSC Shanghai and CSSC Tianjin were established in the PRC in 2014. Kylin Offshore was also incorporated by our Company and a company incorporated in Singapore, which is an Independent Third Party, in Singapore in 2014.

Over the years, we have continued to expand our scale of operations as well as our vessel portfolio. According to the F&S Report, in terms of revenue in 2018, we ranked fourth in the global ship leasing industry with a market share of 3.9% and first in the global non-bank ship leasing industry with a market share of 14.8%.
