Bloomberg and CNBC interviews

27th April 2012

I was interviewed by Bernie Lo and Emily Chan at CNBC and Rishaad Salamat at Bloomberg TV today on Haitong Securities’ IPO debut in Hong Kong. After an initial jump of 0.75%, the shares soon started to trade below the offer price.

I also talked about other share sales in the region. Co., the online business of the Chinese Communist Party’s official newspaper, jumped as much as 71% on its trading debut in Shanghai. Haitong Securities Co., the third-biggest publicly traded Chinese brokerage, was the most active stock by value in Hong Kong on its trading debut in the city. I also discussed the prospects for Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing Ltd.

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.
