“But the timing is subject to the approval of the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) and market conditions,” he said.

The company has recently completed transforming itself into a shareholding corporation.

The company’s electricity sales for February rose 4 percent from a year earlier. But the first two months of 2009 saw a decrease of 1 percent, a slower decline compared with the fourth quarter of last year.

The China Securities Regulatory Commission may lift a five-month moratorium on initial public offerings after the Shanghai Composite Index rallied 20 percent this year to become the world’s best- performing stock market. But no timetable has been announced.
