HONG KONG, Oct 12 (Reuters) - Haitong International Securities Group Limited said on Wednesday that it has sold HK$3.88 billion ($500.15 million) zero-coupon convertible bonds, which were twice times oversubscribed, in the first such bond sale from a Chinese brokerage in Hong Kong.

The initial conversion price of the bonds was HK$6.81 per share, representing a premium of about 32 percent over the last closing price of HK$5.16 per share on Oct. 11.

The bond offering was well received by institutional investors and the orderbook amounted to three times of the issuance volume, the firm said in a statement.

Proceeds of the bonds will be used to support the expansion of its business operation, it added.
