HONG KONG, March 10 (Reuters) - Tianjin Tianhai Investment Co Ltd, a unit of Chinese aviation and shipping conglomerate HNA Group, plans a Hong Kong share sale worth about $800 million as soon as this year, IFR reported, citing people familiar with the plans.
Shanghai-listed Tianhai Investment, a logistics unit of HNA that last year bought U.S. electronics distributor Ingram Micro Inc, has invited banks to pitch for a role in the share sale, IFR, a Thomson Reuters publication, said on Friday.
The company hasn’t set a target for the fundraising, but it could raise about $800 million, two of the people said, according to IFR.
Tianhai Investment declined to comment, while HNA Group and HNA Logistics did not respond to requests for comment, IFR added.
