Zhongyuan Bank to raise up to 20B yuan via bond, share issuances

Zhongyuan Bank Co. Ltd. plans to raise up to 20 billion yuan by issuing offshore preference shares and Tier 2 capital bonds.

The lender said in a Jan. 20 release that it plans to raise no more than 10 billion yuan by releasing up to 100 million shares on a private placement basis, with proceeds to be used to replenish its additional Tier 1 capital.

It also plans to raise up to 10 billion yuan via qualified Tier 2 capital instruments. Proceeds from the issuance will be used to replenish the bank's Tier 2 capital and boost its capital adequacy ratio and capital strengths.

Both issuances are subject to shareholder and regulatory approvals.

As of Jan. 19, US$1 was equivalent to 6.40 Chinese yuan.
