Postal Savings Bank of China stages Shanghai listing /

SHANGHAI, Dec. 10 (Xinhua) — Postal Savings Bank of China (PSBC), one of China’s largest state-owned banks, got listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange Tuesday.

The bank’s shares opened 1.82 percent higher at its debut on the Chinese A-shares market, one of the largest IPOs in recent years.

Established in 2007, the bank got listed in Hong Kong in 2016 and is now one of the six leading state-owned banks in China, which are all listed both on the A-shares and H-shares markets.

The bank is known for its expansive network across the country and reported double-digit net profit growth in the first half of this year.

The PSBC’s Shanghai listing also introduced the greenshoe over-allotment option, which is designed to help firms stabilize price fluctuations of newly issued shares.
