TOPIC:  Hong Kong or New York: How a Listing Venue Can Affect Your Fortune

Hong Kong and New York are both popular venues for Chinese companies seeking to list offshore. During this seminar, Virginia Tam will highlight the pros and cons of the two cities from the perspective of issuers, investors and acquirers.  Through case studies and anecdotal evidence, participants will learn about:

  • The framework: securities regulators, stock exchanges and financial intermediaries
  • The market: investors, securities analysts and the “noises”
  • Why companies fail: mismatches in timing, industry and culture
  • Going forward: trends to consider for 2018 and beyond

Whether you’re general counsel preparing for your company’s IPO, managing M&A projects, or working on private equity investments, this discussion should help you assess the strength of your corporate strategies and plan for the year ahead.  Register now for this briefing.
