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

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.

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.
