Japan's ANA plans share issue after board meeting as early as next week, sources say

TOKYO, Nov 21 (Reuters) - Japan’s ANA Holdings Inc plans to issue new shares following a board meeting as early as next week, two sources said, a move that would see it raise around $1.9 billion to bolster its balance sheet.

Japan’s biggest airline has picked Nomura Holdings and Goldman Sachs Group Inc as two of the joint global coordinators for its first share offering since 2012, said the sources, both of whom declined to be identified because the information was not public.

The issuance is expected to raise around 200 billion yen ($1.9 billion), one of the sources said.
