Assets Hudong Heavy might purchase from China State Shipbuilding Corp.

Last week, Hudong Heavy, originally a ship engine maker, obtained regulatory approval to purchase $1.59b worth of shipbuilding assets -- including Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Co. -- mostly from its parent via a share placement deal.
