Prudential, the UK life assurer, plans to list in Hong Kong ahead of its $20bn rights issue, in a surprise move that could encourage local investors to buy shares in support of its $35.5bn agreed deal to buy AIG's Asian businesses.
英国寿险集团保诚保险(Prudential)计划在配股融资200亿美元之前,先在香港上市。这一出人意料之举有望鼓励当地投资者购买其股票,以支持它以355亿美元收购美国国际集团(AIG)亚洲业务友邦保险(AIA)的交易。

The acceleration of the listing, which was announced yesterday, represents an apparent turnround from the company's statement last week that it would “consider seeking a dual primary-listing . . . in due course after completion of the transaction”.
保诚昨日宣布上市计划。加快上市步伐,标志着该公司明显逆转了上周的声明,即它将“在交易结束后的适当时机……考虑两地上市”。

However, the Pru had filed its application to list at the beginning of last month. Tidjane Thiam, its chief executive, obtained clearance from regulators last week to speed up the process, said people close to the situation. Prudential said it would not offer any new ordinary shares in Hong Kong.
不过,上月初保诚已递交了上市申请。据知情人士表示,保诚首席执行官迪德简?蒂亚姆(Tidjane Thiam)上周获得了监管部门的许可,加快上市进程。保诚表示,将不会在香港发行任何新的普通股。

Mr Thiam is conducting an intensive set of meetings with UK-based investors this week to try to ensure they vote in favour of the rights issue and the deal after some complained of poor communication and a lack of financial information on the deal from the Pru.
本周,蒂亚姆与英国的投资者举行了一系列紧锣密鼓的会面,试图确保他们能投票支持配股发行和收购交易。此前,一些投资者抱怨,在收购友邦保险的问题上,保诚沟通不畅,而且财务信息不透明。

Plenty of Asian investors, many of whom were being lined up for the initial public offering of AIA, the Asian business of AIG, are keen to invest in the combined group, according to people familiar with the deal.
据熟悉交易的人士表示,大量亚洲投资者都渴望投资合并后的集团。此前,其中许多投资者曾在等待友邦保险的首次公开发行(IPO)。

A Hong Kong listing could encourage some Asian investors to buy into the Pru ahead of its rights issue. The company is hoping that the listing will support its share price, which fell 14 per cent last week after news of the deal.
在香港上市有望鼓励一些亚洲投资者在保诚配股发行之前购买其股票。保诚希望此次上市能对其股价起到支撑作用——上周,在公布收购交易后,其股价下跌了14%。
