Nov. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Kepco Engineering & Construction Inc. fell the most in three weeks in Seoul trading after its biggest shareholder sold part of its stake in the nuclear plant design company at a discount.

Korea Electric Power Corp., known as Kepco, raised 101.2 billion won ($88 million) by selling 1.18 million shares of Kepco Engineering for 86,100 won apiece yesterday, a 3.9 percent discount to the closing price, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The buyers weren’t immediately known.
