Public Offering Services
Our Public offerings professionals deliver immediate and comprehensive services in the Chinese Mainland and Hong Kong. We have also helped companies list New York, London, Europe, Canada, Tokyo and Singapore.
The need for actionable intelligence on global capital market developments has never been stronger in China as more Chinese companies seek to raise capital on more exchanges around the globe. Recent Initial Public Offering ("IPO") activity indicates that Europe, London, Tokyo and Toronto have joined the traditionally favored exchanges in Hong Kong, Singapore and New York for ambitious Chinese companies with worldwide aspirations.
Other than the local stock exchanges in Shanghai (The Shanghai Stock Exchange) , Shenzhen (The Shenzhen Stock Exchange) and Hong Kong (The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong) in China, the following are major capital markets offering choices for Chinese companies planning to go public overseas:
- The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in the United States
- London Stock Exchange (LSE) in the United Kingdom
- Euronext in Europe
- Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) in Canada
- Tokyo Stock Exchange in Japan
- Singapore Exchange (SGX) in Singapore
However, the fast evolving global regulatory environment since the US Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, has introduced new complexity to listing decisions. Chinese companies must now:
- perform intensive analysis and comparison of listing requirements among different exchanges
- allow greater lead time to make the necessary preparations
- prepare for increasing competition for funding.
In view of the many options ahead, our Public Offering professionals can advise and assist you to navigate the complex route to becoming a public company.
For the past 20 years, we have assisted in the listing of more than 300 Chinese companies on the different stock exchanges in the world. We keep abreast of regulatory and accounting developments, and anticipate potential issues faced by companies seeking listing. Acting as a key member of your offering team, we provide timely advice on changes in accounting principles, disclosure requirements and stock exchange regulations. We can play a pivotal role to assist you in approaching sponsors and underwriters and can provide consultations. We can also give you an initial evaluation of your state of readiness to go public. Our unique audit approaches provide efficient and effective services to meet stringent time requirements.
We are dedicated to delivering immediate, comprehensive services in Mainland China and Hong Kong and also to helping companies seek listing in many of the above capital markets including New York, London, Europe, Canada, Tokyo, and Singapore.
