Samsung Biologics under scrutiny again over 2016 IPO

Korea Exchange suspected of loosening regulations to help listing

The investigation, which follows an earlier probe into Samsung BioLogic's accounting practices ahead of the listing, is a blow for the Samsung group, which has been hoping to turn biotech into a new pillar of growth.
