[HONG KONG] Cheung Kong Infrastructure Holdings Ltd (CKI), backed by Asia's richest man Li Ka-shing, plans to raise up to US$521 million in a Hong Kong share offering to fund its investment in Britain's Eversholt Rail, IFR reported late on Tuesday, citing a term sheet of the transaction.
The company is offering 69 million shares in an indicative range of HK$56.60 to HK$58.60 each, equivalent to a discount of up to 6.75 per cent to Tuesday's close of HK$60.70, the terms showed. That would put the total share sale at up to HK$4.04 billion (US$521 million).
Deutsche Bank, JPMorgan and Morgan Stanley were hired as joint bookrunners for the deal, IFR said.
CKI on Tuesday agreed to buy Eversholt for 2.5 billion pounds from a group of investors including UK private equity fund 3i Infrastructure Plc.
CKI didn't immediately respond to email and phone requests for comment from Reuters after business hours.
