HA NOI (Biz Hub) — Cam Ranh Port Co. Ltd. sold 582,000 shares, or only 9.5 per cent shares during its initial public offering (IPO) organised at the Ha Noi Stock Exchange on March 16.

The local press said 50 individual investors had bought the shares at an average winning bid of VND10,172 (US$0.48) per share. The company earned more than VND5.9 billion ($280,952) through the transactions.
