Chinese companies are set to defy expectations and raise another $100bn next year through stock market listings, Ernst & Young has forecast.
安永(Ernst & Young)预计，中国企业明年将通过股票市场上市的方式，有望再筹集1000亿美元的资金。这与一些人的预期不同。
Next year will again see large numbers of mainland companies list on domestic and overseas bourses in search of capital to fund expansion plans, according to the professional services firm.
This is in spite of the recent turnround in investor sentiment for Chinese stocks that has led some to perform badly on market debut. Shares in Sinotrans Shipping, Sinotruk and Anton Oilfields all ended down on their first day of trading in Hong Kong this month.
上述预期是在近期市场投资者对中国股票的人气出现转变之际做出的，这使得一些股票在首日上市交易中表现不佳。近期上市的中外运(Sinotrans Shipping)、中国重汽(Sinotruk)和安东油田服务(Anton Oilfields)在首日交易中均收盘下跌。
