CHINA: Beijing Yanjing confirms share placement details
Beijing Yanjing Brewery has unveiled further details of its planned private placement.
The brewer, which last week said it would use the sale of additional shares to fund expansion, said today (25 January) that it will issue between 80m and 86m new A-shares to a maximum of ten institutional investors.

The funds - expected to total around CNY17.96bn (US$2.49bn) - will be used to build 11 new facilities, including a raw material processing plant in Xinjiang and in Inner Mongolia, local reports have said.
