GM Eyes Asian Partners for IPO
General Motors Co (GM.UL) considered an Asian exchange for its historic return to the public markets, but ruled it out because it would have delayed the IPO, people familiar with the matter said.
GM, which filed plans for a dual listing in New York and Toronto this week, as recently as several weeks ago was also considering listing in Hong Kong to highlight its growing focus on China -- now the world's largest car market -- and to attract the region's growing pool of investors, the sources said.
That plan was ultimately scrapped because a Hong Kong listing would have pushed GM's IPO beyond its targeted debut between late October and the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday, sources said, asking not to be named because the preparations for the IPO are not public.
