New IPO rules help send Chinese stocks lower

|By:, SA News Editor

Chinese shares ended -0.6% after authorities introduced rules that would allow IPOs to resume in 2014 year following a year-long suspension.

The concern is that with hundreds of companies waiting to list, a wave of offerings could squeeze liquidity from existing shares.

Still, the regulations, which include stricter disclosure requirements and shorter review times, are considered to be a positive for the long term.
