"The listing of Cavico Mining & Construction shares on the Ho Chi Minh exchange should add immediate value to both Cavico Mining & Construction and Cavico Corporation, which owns 50% of the shares," commented Cavico Corporation Chairman and CEO Ha Quang Bui. "Cavico Mining is Cavico Corporation's first subsidiary to list its shares on the Vietnam stock exchange. This listing will allow Cavico Mining & Construction to raise capital to further its business objectives, which potentially includes owning and operating a coal mining project of its own." He added, "Cavico has plans to list additional subsidiaries on the Vietnamese exchange in the future."

The Vietnamese government issued approval #74/UBCK-GPNY, giving CVCM, JSC the ability to list its shares on the exchange.

However, the actual offering price at closing may differ from its par value due to the high level of public interest in CVCM, JSC.
