StanChart announces $5.1 bln capital-raising plan, posts Q3 loss

HONG KONG, Nov 3 (Reuters) - Standard Chartered Plc announced plans on Tuesday to raise $5.1 billion in new capital via a rights issue and posted a third-quarter operating loss of $139 million due to growing regulatory costs and rising loan impairments in India.

The loss for the July-September quarter compares with a $1.5 billion profit in the same period a year ago.
