Hong Kong: Capital markets

Capital markets (equity)

Within: Capital markets (equity)

Eversheds Sutherland's global footprint makes it a strong choice for issuers seeking to list in Hong Kong and elsewhere in Asia, as well as for those looking to raise capital through public markets further afield, particularly in the US. Under the leadership of Stephen Mok, the team is particularly active in complex offerings including groundbreaking listings. Mok recently led a team that included Norman Hui and consultant Sin-Joh Chuang in advising Datang Power on its non-public issuance of A-shares to its controlling shareholder (China Datang Corporation, hereafter CDC), and also its non-public issuance of H-shares to a wholly owned subsidiary of CDC for circa $2.1bn; this marked the first time a whitewash waiver was used in Hong Kong for such issuances. Mok, Hui, Amy Yu and others acted as Hong Kong counsel to Precision Tsugami (China) on its $64m spin-off listing on the Main Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange; this listing was the first in Hong Kong to involve a spin-off from a Japanese company listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange. In addition, Mok's team served as Hong Kong legal advisers to Nomura as the sole sponsor on Nissin Foods' circa $121m spin-off listing on the Main Board; this was the second listing in Hong Kong to involve a spin-off from a Japanese company listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange. Beyond new listings and follow-on offerings, other work included Mok and others advising listed company New World Department Store (China) on its proposed privatisation by parent firm New World Development.
