BEIJING, Jan 21 - Chinese state-owned metals trader Sinosteel plans to file for an initial public offering of Chinese A-shares before March and get all required approvals by June, Sinosteel president Huang Tianwen was quoted as saying on Thursday.
"Our plan is to list the shares on the A-market this year itself," Huang told China Daily. He did not specify which market the shares would be listed on or say how much it planned to raise.
China Daily said it planned to inject 95 percent of its assets into the listed firm. Sinosteel bought Australian iron ore miner Midwest Corp in 2008.
