HONG KONG Oct 4 Sihuan Pharmaceutical Holdings
Group Ltd, China's largest cardio-cerebral vascular drugmaker,
plans to raise $600-700 million from a Hong Kong initial public
offering this month, sources familiar with the matter told
Reuters on Monday, joining a flurry of stock offerings in the
city in recent months.
Sihuan, which kicks off its IPO premarketing on Monday,
planned to start the road show and bookbuilding on Oct. 12, with
a trading debut set for Oct. 28, one of the sources said.
Sihuan offers products in China covering several major
medical therapeutic areas, namely the cardio-cerebral vascular,
anti-infective, metabolic, oncological and nervous system,
according to the company's website.
The company markets its products through a network covering
about 10,000 hospitals and medical institutions across China.
