HONG KONG, Dec 9 (Reuters) - China Everbright Bank Co Ltd said it will launch an up to $2.8 billion Hong Kong share offering on Tuesday to raise funds to bolster its balance sheet.
The Shanghai-listed bank aims to sell 5.1 billion shares at an indicative price of HK$3.83 to HK$4.27 each, the mid-sized Chinese lender statement said in a statement on Monday. That would make the deal worth up to HK$21.8 billion ($2.8 billion).
China Everbright Bank received commitments worth $1.74 billion from 19 so-called cornerstone investors including China Shipping (Group) Co and Prudential Financial Inc , its prospectus showed.
China Everbright Securities, China International Capital Corp (CICC), Morgan Stanley and UBS AG were hired as joint global coordinators.
