GOME Electrical Appliances, whose founder and ex-chairman is being investigated by Chinese police, is keen to issue new shares in a private placement to new investors to boost its capital but no financial details have been settled, two sources with direct knowledge of the plan told Reuters.

In November, Asia-focused bank Standard Chartered acquired Cazenove Asia, including its staff, mostly based in Hong Kong, for an undisclosed sum.

A spokeswoman for Cazenove Asia in Hong Kong could not be immediately reached for comment. GOME declined to comment.
