Huishan Dairy lists in Hong Kong

27th September 2013

I was interviewed by BBC News again, this time about the IPO of China Huishan Dairy Holdings, which at US$1.3 billion (pre Greenshoe) currently stands as the second largest IPO in Hong Kong in 2013, after that of Sinopec Engineering. The deal was also the largest consumer sector IPO in Asia since the flotation of Chow Tai Fook Jewellery (also in Hong Kong) in December 2011.

Price range meeting turns ugly

19th September 2013

Michael Flaherty and Elzio Barreto published on Reuters today an account of what apparently really went on behind the scenes at a meeting of the underwriters for the US$1.3 billion IPO of Huishan Dairy, Hong Kong’s second largest flotation so far this year.

New licensing for Hong Kong IPO sponsors

12th September 2013

A sponsor firm and its management are responsible for ensuring that staff undertaking sponsor work as Principals and Representatives are licensed and meet the sponsor guidelines. Under the new IPO sponsor regime coming into force on 1 October 2013, there are now three distinct routes through which staff working as Principals on IPO transactions where their firm has been appointed in the role of sponsor can be licensed.

 

 

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.
