SINGAPORE (ICIS)--China National Chemical Corporation (ChemChina) aims to buy 17.92% shares of Shenyang Chemical that will take its overall interest in the company to 51%, according to a notification to the Shenzhen Stock Exchange on Thursday.

Shenhua Group - a wholly-owned subsidiary of China National Blue Star which in turn is 80% owned by ChemChina - already owns 33.02% shares of Shenyang Chemical.

“ChemChina targets to raise its interest to 51% following the completion of purchase, that could help to improve long-term development of Shenyang Chemica," Shenyang Chemical said in the statement to the bourse.

The direct purchase involves 118m shares at yuan (CNY) 4.55/share ($0.7/share), the statement added.

The State-owned Assets Supervision and Administration Commission of the State Council approved the acquisition on 21 January but a final approval needs to be made by the China Securities Regulatory Commission, the statement added.

Shenyang Chemical is a state-owned listed company in chlor-alkali chemicals, deep oil processing and new chemical materials.
