Shanghai-listed Tianhai Investment plans $800 mln HK share sale -IFR

HONG KONG, March 10 (Reuters) - Tianjin Tianhai Investment

Co Ltd, a unit of Chinese aviation and shipping conglomerate HNA

Group, plans a Hong Kong share sale worth about $800

million as soon as this year, IFR reported, citing people

familiar with the plans.

Shanghai-listed Tianhai Investment, a logistics

unit of HNA that last year bought U.S. electronics distributor

Ingram Micro Inc, has invited banks to pitch for a role in the

share sale, IFR, a Thomson Reuters publication, said on Friday.

The company hasn't set a target for the fundraising, but it

could raise about $800 million, two of the people said,

according to IFR.

Tianhai Investment declined to comment, while HNA Group and

HNA Logistics did not respond to requests for comment, IFR

added.
