Lee Shau Kee and Cheng Yu-Tung, from the same town as Yang (Shunde), bought 1 billion of Country Garden IPO stocks respectively. There was much investment interest from Hong Kong. Yang is the chairman of the company nominally. However, and his daughter's majority interest is held on behalf of the family.
