The volume of shares is equivalent to 86.16 per cent of Vietnam Airlines, which is listed as HVN.

Earlier, the carrier announced the issuance of more than 191.19 million shares to existing shareholders at the price of VNĐ10,000 (US$0.4) per share.

The Ministry of Transport, which represented the State in the ownership of HVN shares before they were transferred to the committee, was allocated more than one trillion buying rights. It then decided to put up more than 371.5 million buying rights for auction with a starting price of VNĐ6,026 each.

At the end of the registration period, only nine individuals registered to buy 272,000 buying rights. However, no investor came to buy the rights and to receive the deposit.

In the trading session on Tuesday, HVN stock was at VNĐ32,000 per share. — VNS
