Sidley’s capital markets team of professionals has worked on a significant number of the initial public offerings (IPOs) that are listed on the SEHK, and ranks among the top firms in terms of number of deals. In recent years, we have handled more than 180 IPOs on the SEHK. Between January 2013 and February 2014, Sidley completed 11 IPOs on the SEHK and was named as number one international law firm (tied) advising on Hong Kong IPOs based on the number of transactions (The Lawyer, March 2014). Many of these transactions involve a concurrent global placement pursuant to Rule 144A and Regulation S. We also have the capability to handle dual listings and cross-border IPOs, such as SEC-registered IPOs listed on the New York Stock Exchange or NASDAQ with concurrent listings elsewhere, and global placements with listings on non-U.S. stock exchanges. Our issuer clients include major corporations from industries such as real estate, power, energy, solar, internet, telecom, oilfield services, metals, paper and pulp, mining, transportation, consumer products and automotives. In addition, we have also worked with numerous leading financial institutions in their role as underwriter or sponsor in connection with equity transactions.
