Many Chinese would like to go public to raise the profile of their company and to raise capital for growth. But the local Chinese stock markets: Shanghai, Shenzhen and even Hong Kong, can involve long waits and currying political favor. As an alternative, Chinese companies have long looked to the US market, where it is possible to go public in one big step, or to go public through a series of smaller steps. Tonight, we will discuss this topic with two experts who have been involved with Chinese companies going public in the US through an “Alternative Public Offering” or a shell transaction. Ni Haiping is from Access America Investments, a private equity investor who has helped companies go public in the US. Chen Hong has been involved with several investments as well.
