CSRC turns down more firms applying for IPOs

CHINA’S securities market regulator has rejected more initial public offering applications from companies amid efforts to improve the quality of listed companies and protect the interests of individual investors.

The China Securities Regulatory Commission in May reviewed IPO application documents from 64 companies, and nine of them, or 14 percent of the total, failed to get the approval to go public, China Securities Journal said over the weekend.

The rate was higher than the 12 percent in April and the 11.6 percent for the first five months of this year, the journal said, citing data from Wind Info, a leading financial information provider.

An inability to generate sustainable profit growth and malpractices in business operations and information disclosure were among the main reasons for the CSRC to reject the IPOs, noted the report.

Under the current IPO system, new shares are subject to approval from the CSRC.

In a similar vein, the CSRC on Friday approved the IPO applications of four companies, fewer than the seven approved last week.

The four companies will raise no more than 1.5 billion yuan (US$220 million), much less than the 2.3 billion yuan approved to be raised by the seven IPOs in the previous week.
