HONG KONG Dec 21 (Reuters) - China Machinery Engineering Corp (CMEC) jumped as much as 12.6 percent in its Hong Kong debut on Friday, after the Chinese state-owned contractor priced its $500 million initial public offering at the top of an indicative range.

Shares in the Beijing-based company rose to HK$6.08 in early trading, compared with a 0.4 percent decline in the benchmark Hang Seng index.

The company priced its IPO last week at HK$5.40, the top of a HK$4.10 to HK$5.40 per share indicative range.

ABC International, BOC International, CIMB Securities and ICBC International jointly managed the IPO.
