State-owned Postal Savings Bank of China (PSBC) on Tuesday launched an initial public offering in Hong Kong worth up to $8.1 billion, with the vast majority of the deal covered by cornerstone investors.
The group of six cornerstone investors will buy as much as $5.86 billion worth of stock on offer, or about 72 percent of the IPO, underscoring tepid demand for Hong Kong offerings from retail investors and fund managers in the city.
That would put it near the record 77 percent cornerstone tranche for the $810 million listing of China Development Bank Financial Leasing in July.
Large investments by cornerstone investors hurt liquidity for IPOs once the shares start trading, as the stock is locked up for a minimum of six months. The cornerstone money can also pressure the stock as the expiration of the lock-up period nears.
PSBC, China's largest bank by number of branches, is offering 12.1 billion new shares in an indicative range of HK$4.68 to HK$5.18 each, according to a term sheet seen by Reuters.
The two largest cornerstone investors, CSIC Investment One and Shanghai International Port Group, agreed to invest $2.2 billion and $2.1 billion respectively. Victory Global Group, a unit of aviation conglomerate HNA Group, will buy $1 billion of shares, while other cornerstone investors will buy smaller stakes.
PSBC did not immediately reply to a Reuters request for comment on the IPO terms.
The IPO is slated to be priced on Sept. 20, with its debut on the Hong Kong stock exchange set for Sept. 28.
