Bankers and analysts are expecting a recovery in listings in Hong Kong as China moves forward with reopening plans. Murli Maiya, head of equity capital markets for Asia Pacific at JPMorgan & Chase in Hong Kong, said that with the transition towards a reopening, they anticipate several delayed Chinese initial public offerings (IPOs) and follow-on transactions to occur in the near term adding that these are more likely to be either onshore or in Hong Kong rather than the US. Victoria Lloyd, a partner in Baker McKenzie’s capital markets practice in Hong Kong, said that with China opening up, everyone is hoping that next year will be a better year – because there is a solid IPO pipeline, with a series of companies that have submitted applications for listings or are waiting to do so.
