CTC Media(CTCM) And Bank of China(3988.HK) IPO Today

Bank of China shares rise 15 percent in Hong Kong trading after mega IPO

Shares in Bank of China, which raised US$9.7 billion in the world's largest initial public offering in six years, rose a better-than-expected 15 percent in their trading debut on Thursday as investors shrugged off jittery markets.

The share sale was the largest from China and marked another milestone in Beijing's efforts to clean up a banking sector that has long been a weak link in the country's booming economy as a result of decades of state-directed lending.
