THE last batch of investors who were promised shares following the August 1992 share issue fiasco will get their allocation next month when eight companies begin their share-issuing exercises, officials say. The investors getting shares were successful in lot-drawings, three of which have been held since August 1992. In August 1992, one billion shares were promised, but not immediately allocated, through the sale of subscription forms. A Shenzhen Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) official said yesterday all outstanding shares should have been met from the share-issuing. Eight companies would offer A shares with a par value of 140 million yuan (about HK$124 million) to mainlanders, the official said. The issues, to begin next month, would run until September, he said. Listing of the shares on the Shenzhen exchange would depend on the exchange's schedule, he said. Share-issuing and listing in China are separate exercises. It is not uncommon to have shares listed months after the shares are issued. The eight companies that will offer shares are: Shenzhen Textile Industrial Co, Shenzhen Kangde'er, Nanguang United Development, Shenzhen Nanyou Property Development, Shenzhen Tianmawei Electronics, Shenzhen World Sun Enterprises, Shenzhen Great Wall Property Development and Shenzhen Zhongqiao Development. The SEC official dismissed suggestions that the issues by the eight firms would further dampen sentiment. Some initial public offers listed this year have been received cooly. ''The sizes of the companies are relatively small, with each issuing about 10 million to 20 million shares,'' he said. The official said that the share issues were not late, considering the time required for approving the issues and other necessary procedures.
