Chinese developer Midea Real Estate seeks up to US$493m in Hong Kong float

It is offering 180 million shares priced at $17 to $21.50 apiece.

Bloomberg reports that Midea Real Estate Holding Ltd., is seeking to raise as much as US$493m in a Hong Kong IPO.

The Guangdong-based developer is offering a total of 180 million shares at $17 to $21.50 apiece. Youngor Group Co. and Foshan Yesheng Investment Co. agreed to buy about $178m of stock as cornerstone investors.

The float comes at a delicate time as the city’s benchmark index has declined 17% from its January high on the back of persistent trade jitters and emerging market sell-off.
