China Citic Bank has received approval from the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) to carry out a rights issue, Reuters reports. The mid-sized lender seeks to raise about $4 billion through the issue.
The bank will sell nearly 2.2 shares in Hong Kong and Shanghai for every 10 existing shares, up to a total of 8.6 billion shares. The issue is being supported by the bank’s two major shareholders, CITIC Group and BBVA.
