China Everbright Bank (601818.SH) is looking to raise US$6 billion in an initial public offering on Hong Kong’s stock market next month, Bloomberg reported. The bank began to evaluate investor demand on Tuesday for its planned 10.5 billion share issuance. It will set the final trading price on July 8, and the IPO will launch on July 15. The firm’s pricing – which is lower than originally forecast – may be in response to weakened investor appetite in recent weeks. Even so, its IPO could easily become the largest launch on the Hong Kong market so far this year. The firm also announced that it would establish a US$729 million investment fund with Macquarie (MQG.ASX) to focus on infrastructure projects within China.
