Shares of struggling Chinese developer Kaisa jump as trade resumes

[HONG KONG] Shares of Chinese developer Kaisa Group surged as much as 32 per cent in resumed trade on Monday after Sunac China Holdings Ltd said it had acquired a HK$4.55 billion (US$586.9 million) stake in the embattled company.

Kaisa has been struggling after a string of senior executives left unexpectedly, authorities blocked sales at some of its projects in the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen late last year and it missed a coupon payment on one of its bonds.

Shares of the company rose to as high as HK$2.1 in early afternoon trade. The stock had halved in a one-month plunge before trading was suspended in December.
