Shenzhen-listed Internet services provider Wangsu Science & Technology Co. Ltd. said it has agreed to buy South Korean peer CDNetworks for 21.1 billion yen ($185 million) in a bid to quickly expand its content delivery services outside its home market.

China Minsheng Financial eyes financial sector buys in Europe
China Minsheng Financial Holding Corp is scouting for acquisitions of financial services companies including banks in Europe, betting on the bloc's strengthening ties with the world's second-largest economy, a top executive said.
