Bank of China announced in January plans for the issue of six-year bonds, convertible into its Shanghai-listed shares, to shore up its capital base and maintain its lending capacity, joining a rush of fundraising by Chinese lenders.

Guo Shuqing, chairman of China Construction Bank, the world's second-largest lender by market value, said in an interview with Reuters on Thursday that CCB may delay its planned $11 billion capital-raising to early next year due to uncertain market conditions.
