To ease the pressure, Evergrande offered $ 3.20 to Tentcent Holdings Holdings Ltd. The unit sells for $ 2.07 billion and a 4% stake for an unknown buyer for $ 1.8 billion. The record did not give time for the sale.
Prior to the transaction, Overgrand owned 37.55% of the company and Tencent (0700.HK) was 16.9%. Evergrande’s stake will fall to 26.55% and Tencent’s holdings will increase to 23.9% after sale. Overgrande has agreed to provide Hington with a five-year HK 2.07 billion loan to support business development, the company added in its application.
Hington’s shares are expected to resume trading on August 2, after being closed on July 29.
