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 years-long 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.
