HÀ NỘI — The State Capital Investment Corporation (SCIC) will auction 2.5 million shares of Lâm Đồng Pharmaceutical JSC (HNX: LDP) at VNĐ28,100 (US$1.20) per share.
The auction will be held at the Hà Nội Stock Exchange on October 10 and the volume of shares offered for sale is equal to 31.88 per cent of the firm’s charter capital.

In May 2019, Nguyễn Kim Group successfully completed the deal.
In the first six months of 2019, the pharmaceutical business earned VNĐ181 billion ($7.78 million) in net revenue, down 13.8 per cent yearly, and VNĐ6.84 billion in loss, up 10.3 per cent yearly. — VNS
