China Resources Pharmaceutical Group Ltd. raised $1.8 billion after pricing its Hong Kong initial public offering below the midpoint of a marketed range, according to people familiar with the matter.

The nation’s second-largest drugmaker priced its sale of 1.543 billion shares at HK$9.10 apiece, the people said, asking not to be identified as the information is private. State-backed China Resources Pharmaceutical offered the shares at HK$8.45 to HK$10.15 each, according to terms for the deal obtained by Bloomberg last week.
