Chinese dairy giant Liaoning Huishan Holdings (Group) Co. has reportedly appointed three bankers to launch its IPO.
The company is hoping to raise between US$800m and $1bn through the initial public offering, according to the Wall Street Journal. Liaoning is understood to have appointed Deutsche Bank, HSBC Holdings and J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. as sponsors.
The IPO is expected to take place in second half of 2013, sources told the publication.
