for RMB 70 million and RMB 125 million, respectively. A 49% stake in a Shanghai project has also been sold for RMB 49 million.
In 2011, Greentown China's contracted sales totaled RMB 35.3 billion, reflecting a year-on-year decline of 35% or RMB 18.8 billion and accounting for 88% of its reduced annual sales target of RMB 40 billion.
The sales target for 2011 was reduced to RMB 40 billion from RMB 55 billion last September, said the property developer.
