CTOnews.com, December 12 (Xinhua)-- IDG Capital is considering buying shares in Chery Holdings Group Co., Ltd. from existing shareholders for up to 7 billion yuan ($976 million), which could expose the buy-out company to one of China's few major unlisted automakers, according to Bloomberg.
Beijing-based IDG is raising money from investors for potential deals, according to people familiar with the matter, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Given that Chery has revived plans to list Chery in China, any deal will be struck as Chery seeks to simplify its shareholding structure, according to people familiar with the matter. As part of the restructuring, Chery shareholders can choose to exchange their shares for Chery's shares, they added.
Chery is considering applying for an initial public offering as early as next year and could seek a valuation of up to 150 billion yuan, according to people familiar with the matter.
The review is ongoing and may not lead to any deals, according to people familiar with the matter. The details of Chery's potential IPO could also change, they added. Representatives of Chery and IDG Capital didn't respond to requests for comment.
Chery is one of the last unlisted carmakers in China. This is also the most important asset of the Chery Group, which is also engaged in other businesses such as financial services and real estate.
Chery is also one of China's largest car exporters. The company plans to set up subsidiaries to sell products directly to customers in the UK, Germany and France.
