China greenlights 10 IPOs

Xinhua, April 1, 2017 Adjust font size:

The China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) has approved IPO applications from ten companies, the same number as last week.

They will raise no more than 5.9 billion yuan (about 857 million U.S. dollars), the CSRC said in a statement.

Four companies will be listed on the Shanghai stock exchange, three on the Shenzhen small and medium enterprise board and three on the ChiNext, China's NASDAQ-style board.
