Global power company AES, based in Arlington, said it raised $1.58 billion by selling a portion of the company to a subsidiary of China Investment Corp.
China Investment bought 125.5 million shares of AES stock for $12.60 each. It gains a seat on AES's board.
CIC, with about $300 billion in assets along with other state-controlled companies, has been buying assets around the world. Such business transactions are empirical evidence of China's market system. Such mix of private sector and public sectors may be observed in other nations as well.
