其实跳过IPO的直接挂牌 “Direct Listing” ,并不是什么新鲜事了,被写进了哈佛案例分析,现在市值超过600亿美金的Spotify,应该是这两年来最出名的,通过直接挂牌在纽约交易所(NYSE)上市的公司。但在12月22日之前,直接挂牌的公司,只能向市场公开售卖现有股东的股份, 并不能 公开募集新的资金。

 

这种直接挂牌的方式,被纽交所称为 “Selling Shareholder Direct Floor Listing(SSDFL)”。如果需要发售新股、公开募集新的、大量资金,主流的方式,...

美第二家在线问诊IPO Amwell的长期挑战和趋势

村夫日记 08月27日

Latitude Health是一家为大健康领域投资者和从业者提供咨询的机构

近日,Amwell申请在纽约上市,这是在Teladoc上市5年后,美国迎来第二家在线问诊公司IPO。从上市文件来看,Amwell的营收来源较为分散,为其他机构赋能而非自身平台的收入是助其做大的关键,但这也制约了其快速做大规模。虽然今年疫情大幅提升了自身平台的问诊量和收入,但这并不持久,未来主营业务仍将来源于为其他机构赋能,这也将在总体上限制增速。

 

由于互联网医疗在美国始终是一个2B的产业,企业和保险公司的付费模式决定了公司的增长性。会员费模式助推其营收规模快速上量,Teladoc能够在用户实际问诊次数很低的情况下就达到上...

Bottom line: Live streaming gamer DouYu should get relatively strong demand for its $500 million New York IPO, while a smaller listing plan by younger coffee specialist Luckin is likely to die on the vine.

One of the longest runs I can recall for New York IPOs by Chinese firms continues to chug ahead, with two new filings, one by live streaming game operator DouYu and the other by a high-tech Starbucks (Nasdaq: SBUX) challenger called Luckin. This particular IPO window is now rapidly creeping...

Bottom line: A slowdown in New York IPOs by Chinese firms at the start of the year was largely caused by the government shutdown, and activity could soon pick up starting with a listing by leading live broadcaster Douyu.

We'll kick off my first post of the Lunar New Year with a look at New York IPO activity in the first part of 2019, or more precisely the lack of activity for Chinese companies. If this were any other year, I would say such a silence is probably normal, since in the past the f...

IPOs: BeiGene, China Tower IPOs Fail to Excite in HK

Doug Young 08月10日

财新传媒英文部编辑

Bottom line: Lackluster debuts for two of this year's largest China IPOs in Hong Kong points to a cresting of the current new listing wave, with sentiment starting to wane as investor appetite for new choices gets satisfied.

Two of the year's biggest China IPOs have formally launched in Hong Kong this week, each with a different story and accompanying moral to tell. The larger of those, and the world's largest IPO in the last two years, has seen state-run cellular tower operator China Tower (...

IPOs: Xiaomi Fizzles in Debut, But What's Next?

Doug Young 07月09日

财新传媒英文部编辑

Bottom line: Xiaomi's stock is likely to be volatile over the next year and could move broadly downward as investors wait to see if the company's comeback has legs and it can move into higher-end products.

Smartphone maker Xiaomi (HKEx: 1810) seems to have become the proverbial lead zepplyn sinking further and further into the mire as it finally made its trading debut in Hong Kong. The company has been dogged by skepticism almost since the get-go of its blockbuster IPO, which ended this morni...

IPOs: Xiaomi Growth Charms, Losses Alarm

Doug Young 05月04日

财新传媒英文部编辑

Bottom line: Xiaomi is hoping to attract investors to its IPO through its recent strong revenue growth, but it could still be years before it becomes profitable due to heavy reliance on low-end, low-margin products.

Everyone is fawning over the newly released IPO prospectus from Xiaomi, the smartphone maker that is aiming to make what's likely to be the biggest listing of all time by a company from its class. Most eyes seem to be focused on the company's top line, headlined by revenue that gr...

IPOs: China Biotechs Abandon New York for Hong Kong

Doug Young 04月27日

财新传媒英文部编辑

Bottom line: Two biotech firms' abandonment of New York IPOs for Hong Kong is part of a broader trend to make Hong Kong and China more competitive for high-growth startups, and could ultimately boost valuations in all three markets.

We'll take a break from all the trade war talk as we close out the week and instead turn to another major development taking place in Hong Kong, where the local stock exchange has just rolled out some reforms with major implications for high-growth startups. Those...

IPOs: iQiyi, Bilibili Juice Up Fund-Raising Targets

Doug Young 03月19日

财新传媒英文部编辑

Bottom line: iQiyi and Bilibili should price near the top of their higher IPO price ranges, as each benefits from strong investor sentiment fueled by their unique offerings and a potential new plan to concurrently list their shares in China. 

Anyone who was worried that a regulatory crackdown on fintechs late last year might dampen broader enthusiasm for Chinese stocks can relax. That's my key takeaway from the latest headlines, which show that two non-fintech Internet firms are experiencing ...

Bottom line: A new plan allowing offshore listed Chinese firms like Alibaba and Tencent to make secondary listings at home appears to have momentum and could stand a better than 50 percent chance of success.

A mix of politics and business is in the air this week, as the annual National People's Congress takes place in Beijing, including a concurrent gathering of business leaders who advise the nation's legislature. Those leaders include most of the country's leading high-tech CEOs, who are al...

IPOs: Sogou Makes It to Market, But Will It Excite?

Doug Young 11月10日

财新传媒英文部编辑

Bottom line: Sogou is unlikely to shed its position as a second-tier search engine anytime soon, despite its ties to Tencent ties, and its stock is also unlikely to be a strong performer over the next 2-3 years.

Sogou pops on debut, but will it hold?

After writing about up-and-coming hot new names like Qudian (NYSE: QD) and ZhongAn Insurance (HKEx: 6060) making blockbuster IPOs over these last few weeks, it feels a bit like going back to the future by writing today about...

Bottom line: The strong debut for Rise Education reflects good investor appetite for new China concept stocks in New York, which should bode well for a new listing by Jianpu and could also buoy iClick.

Jianpu, iClick file for NY listings

The IPO floodgates are opening wider following the hugely successful listings of microlender Qudian (NYSE: QD) in New York last week and the Hong Kong listing of online insurance provider ZhongAn (HKEx: 6060) shortly before that. Those t...

Bottom line: A periodic window of IPOs that opens every 2-3 years is taking shape, with fintechs and other new categories like online literature likely to do well, while older concepts  like e-commerce could struggle for attention.

My long-predicted IPO floodgate has finally burst, with no less than four major offerings in the headlines as we go into the new week. The new offerings I'm referring to involve two in the US, one for fintech ...

Bottom line: China Reading's IPO should be well received when it launches its road show as soon next week, and the shares should price and debut strongly on its good profit margins and growth prospects.

Bottom line: ZhongAn should perform reasonably well over the short- to medium-term by drawing on its big-name investors for business, but faces uncertainty due to an untested business model.

ZhongAn banks on online insurance

There's not a ton to say about the year's first blockbuster IPO from the fintech realm, since it really went pretty much according to plan. I'm talking about the just-concluded listing for online-only insurance startup ZhongAn Online Property & Casua...

Bottom line: A flurry of IPOs for offshore Chinese tech firms marks the start of an upcycle following a three year lull, with fintechs likely to be the top stars.

Secoo fizzles in trading debut

After a relatively boring first eight months of the year, the IPO market has suddenly come to life with a flurry of offerings that are turning in a mixed performance. E-commerce seems to be a bit passe, though you would never guess that based on the recent run-up in the stock of s...

​新加坡人也成了“乡巴佬”,见识到金融科技(Fintech)在中国的崛起,新加坡总理李显龙形容道。为此,他要求当地金融发展局加速“补课”,以保证其“智慧国”战略的落地。

同样需要补这课的,还有国内那些心心念念要上市的企业。统计显示,2017年以来,有52家企业IPO(Initial Public Offerings,首次公开募股)被否,数量超前4年总和。其中,制造型企业居多,主因是证监会质疑它们持续盈利的能力,本质在于很多公司的“应收账款”增长过快,或者占营收比例较大。

按彭博社统计,仅国内上市公司,应收帐款总额就达3.89万亿元,两...

Bottom line: Best Inc is likely to make its New York IPO in the next two weeks, but its shares will price in the middle of their range and debut weakly due to stiff competition in the logistics sector.

Best Inc. raises IPO target

It's been a quiet year so far for major Chinese IPOs in New York, but all that looks set to change soon with several major offerings coming down the pipeline. One of those is in the headlines as we head into the end of August, with word that Bes...

Bottom line: Sohu's plan to list its Sogou search unit has a 50-50 chance of happening this year, while AirMedia's 2-year-old privatization plan is likely to close within that period.

Sohu talks IPO for Sogou -- again

A couple of IPOs are in the headlines as we head into the new week, led by an often-discussed offering by perennial third-place search engine Sogou, which is co-owned by Internet titan Tencent (HKEx: 700) and second-rate portal Sohu (Nasdaq: SOHU). At the s...
