Metal mould and cast maker China Metal International (CMI) will be this year's last company to list on the stock exchange, after moving its listing to December 31. Held by Taiwanese-listed China Metal Products, CMI would launch its 31/2-day offering for retail investors on Monday, market sources said. It originally planned to start its public offering last Monday and list the shares next Thursday. CMI had priced the 250 million shares on offer at $1.42 each, against an indicative price ranging from $1.10 to $1.60, and expected to raise $355 million, a source said. Investors fear metal plays would be hit by the mainland's austerity measures, but sources said the listing, arranged by GC Capital and Sinopac Securities, was well anticipated. 'The company is planning to increase its exports and won't be affected much [by the measures],' the source said. Meanwhile, Beijing Media Corp, an advertising agency of state-owned Beijing Youth Daily Newspaper Agency, has priced its shares at $18.95 each, the top end of its $14.95-$18.95 offer price range, in response to overwhelming demand from both institutional and retail investors.
