Book launch

16th April 2011

“IPO: A Global Guide” was formally launched on 15 April 2011 at Kelly & Walsh in Exchange Square in Hong Kong. The event was well attended, and saw the author signing a number of copies of the book. The attendees came from a variety of backgrounds and included, among others, ECM bankers, research analysts, traders, company directors, lawyers, investors, students and journalists.

Ms. Meryl Chan, Manager of Swindon Book Group, first welcomed participants. M. Michael Duckworth, Publisher of Hong Kong University Press, subsequently introduced the author and the book, and then handed over to Philippe Espinasse, who explained the genesis and development of the project, before sitting down for a busy signing session.

A few photos of the event are set out below:

I have set up this blog to report notable events on international IPOs.

These include particularly remarkable transactions, changes in market practice (whether pertaining to documentation, valuation or marketing techniques) and regulations, as well as appointments in the sphere of equity capital markets (ECM).

Although the blog has a bias towards the Asia-Pacific region, since this is where I am based, it is intended to be global in both its scope and outlook.

Please use the contact form above to report an IPO story or an ECM development.
