FBA: Bona files for stock market listing
THR: China's Bona Film Group Files IPO
- Bona, which no longer is connected to China's military, counts among its private competitors Huayi Brothers Media, which raised $176 million on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange in October 2009 and Enlight Media, a Beijing based TV company turned movie studio.
- Bona, in fact, has government ties of its own, having merged in November 2003 with the China Poly Group, a business wing of the People's Liberation Army, to form PolyBona Film Distribution, the company's former English name
- Bona's U.S. IPO filing follows close on the heels of the filings for U.S. public listings by China's two largest online video sharing web sites, Youku with the New York Stock Exchange and Tudou on the Nasdaq.

Hsu may have called Wang her "husband" in her statement, however, due to regulations governing cross–strait marriages; they are not legally husband and wife yet.
