Global law firm Norton Rose Fulbright has advised Beijing Capital Land Ltd on the acquisitions of four target companies and related shareholders’ loans from its controlling shareholder, Beijing Capital Group Co., Ltd, and its subsidiaries. The acquisitions involve an aggregate value of US$640 million.

The target companies hold property and primary land development projects in Chongqing, Shenyang and office properties in Beijing.

The acquisitions follow Beijing Capital Land’s proposed A-share offering and listing in China. They constitute a major and connected transaction under the listing rules of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and are subject to the approval of its shareholders in the company’s general meeting.
