BEIJING, Dec 18 (Reuters) - China’s Hengfeng Bank said in a Wednesday statement that it would issue 100 billion shares through a private placement.

Central Huijin Investment Ltd, an investment arm of the country’s sovereign investment fund, China Investment Corp (CIC), will purchase 60 billion shares, the local government-backed financial asset management firm will purchase 36 billion shares, while the remaining 4 billion shares will be issued to Singapore’s United Overseas Bank and other investors, according to the statement.
