The firm has advised DBS Bank, Merrill Lynch, China International Capital Corporation, Credit Suisse, Maybank Kim Eng Securities, and Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited as the joint bookrunners and underwriters on the IPO with an offering of 923,863,999 units in the real estate investment trust.
