Cover Story: China’s Share Markets Back on the Fundraising Menu for Ailing Developers (Part 2)
China is reopening the door to the domestic stock market to cash-strapped property developers by lifting a 12-year ban on share sales in yet another major bid by policymakers to pull the ailing real estate sector out of a slump that has seen sales fall off a cliff and a flood of defaults.
The measure will allow listed builders to raise funds through domestic share sales for debt repayments and acquisitions, according to a Monday announcement by the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC). The statement said the policy adjustment will take effect immediately.
