Evergrande’s Frankfurt listed shares rose 15.1% following a multi-year-old low in the prior session.

The pan-European rose 0.8% by 0720 GMT, extending Tuesday’s bounce with commodity-linked stocks also in the lead.

Deutsche Post (OTC) dropped 2.3% following a cut by FedEx Corp (NYSE) its full-year outlook after US delivery company FedEx Corp (NYSE) reduced earnings estimates and slowing packages.
