PetroChina plans Shanghai IPO in early Nov
Updated: 2007-10-15 15:11

PetroChina, China's largest oil and gas producer, is expected to launch its initial public offer (IPO) in Shanghai next month, sources close to the deal said yesterday, according to today's Beijing Times.

The roadshow for investors is likely to start around October 22 in Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen, as well as Guangzhou in consideration. And the shares listing will be in Shanghai in the first ten days of November, the sources said.

On September 24, China's stock regulator approved PetroChina's plan to issue up to four billion new A shares in the offer, expected to raise around US$7-8 billion, making it one of China's biggest domestic IPOs.

The total number of shares be issued is expected to reach 183 billion shares, behind Industrial and Commercial Bank of China's 344 billion shares, Bank of China's 253.8 billion shares, and China Construction Bank's 233.7 billion shares.

The underwriters are CITIC, UBS and China International Capital Corporation Limited.

Shares in Chinese oil firm PetroChina Co Ltd jumped almost 10 percent on Monday touching an all-time high of HK$18.26 per share, valuing the firm at as much as $418 billion.

Dali, the IPO is on track. Judging from the run up, do you foresee more upside from current level? Is it worth a speculative punt?

My Master, A National Treasure

REPOST:  Its been more than two years since I posted on my sifu. This is probably the most significant posting I had done thus far that does not involve business or politics. My circle of close friends and business colleagues have benefited significantly from his treatment.

My Master, Dr. Law Chin Han (from my iPhone)

Where shall I start? OK, just based on real life experiences of those who are close to me. The entire Tong family (Bukit Kiara Properties) absolutely swear that he is the master of masters when it comes to acupuncture (and dentistry as well). To me, you can probably find many great dentists, but to find a real Master in acupuncture, thats a whole different ballgame.

I am not big aficionado of Chinese medicine or acupuncture initially. I guess you have to go through the whole shebang to appreciate the real life changing effects from a master.

My business partner and very close friend went to him after 15 years of persistent gout problem, he will get his heavy attacks at least…

Passengers - Go Watch It

Passengers. Brilliant story telling. Visionary yet believable. Like Martian, only better. Space travel, science, romantic, desolation, philosophical, mortality n its devastation, spectacular imagery. Being human n humane. 9.7/10
