HCM CITY — Sài Gòn Fuel Joint Stock Company (SFC) registered to buy over 9.7 million shares, or nearly 33 per cent, of stakes in HCM Food One Member Company (Foodcosa) when the firm auctioned its shares in an initial public offering this week.

According to the HCM City Stock Exchange, which will organize the auction, the shares are to be offered on July 15 at a starting price of VNĐ12,000 each (US$0.53).
