China's Agile says unit plans HK$4.7b IPO in Hong Kong

[HONG KONG] China property developer Agile Group Holdings said it was looking to list its property management unit on the main board in Hong Kong, raising up to HK$4.7 billion (S$786.59 million) to fund investments, acquisitions and upgrade operations.

The China-focused property management service provider plans to issue 333.33 million shares of A-Living Services, at a price ranging from HK$10.80 to HK$14.20 apiece, Agile said in a filing on Monday.

That would put the unit's value at about US$1.84 billion to US$2.42 billion.

Agile said it will hold about 54 per cent of A-Living on completion of the offering.

Agile had earlier said that its shareholders would be entitled to apply for shares of its to-be-spun-off unit on an assured basis pursuant to a preferential offering.

The issue price of A-Living will be fixed on Feb 3 and dealing in the shares is expected to begin on Feb 9.

HSBC and Huatai Financial Holdings are joint sponsors of the global offering.
