Liu Family is reportedly seeking to sell Chong Hing Bank Limited. Shares of Chong Hing Bank rose to 9.8% at HKD 20.90 on April 2, 2013. Shares of the parent company, Liu Chong Hing Investment Ltd. rose 5.1% at HKD 12.30 on April 2, 2013. A source from an investment bank said the lender is in talks to sell the business. According to South Moring Post, Chong Hing Bank Limited declined to comment. Liu Family holds 60% of Chong Hing Bank. "The board would like to confirm that it is not aware of any negotiations or agreements relating to any disposal of controlling interest in the bank by its controlling shareholders," Chong Hing Board said. "Chong Hing is paving the way for them to sell. The family is looking to sell at a price of at least two times price-to-book. That is why despite all the talk a final deal has failed to materialize. They want a good price," said a fund manager who declined to be named. The deed says if a Liu family member wants to sell his shares, existing shareholders have the right of first refusal. The sale of Chong Hing Bank shares to people outside the Liu family is limited by a deed that the bank's founder instituted in 1972. The Apple Daily newspaper on April 1, 2013 reported that the family may confirm a potential disposal of a controlling interest in the bank. The board was not aware of any information that must be announced, the bank said in a statement to the Hong Kong stock exchange following a jump in the price of the stock and an increase in trading volumes that began on March 28, 2013. Chong Hing Bank Limited said the statement was made at the request of the bourse.
