Leading firms acts on US$468m HK IPO

Three global law firms and two Chinese outfits worked on the second-largest first-time share sale in Hong Kong this year.

Squire Patton Boggs (SPB), working with Grandall Law Firm, acted for Xinyi Energy in its US$468m IPO in Hong Kong. Deacons, alongside JunHe, worked for the underwriters. Milbank advised the sponsors and coordinators.

Xinyi Solar, a solar-glass manufacturer, spun off Xinyi Energy, its solar farm-management arm. Xinyi Energy said it will use the float’s proceeds to add 540MW of capacity to its 954MW portfolio of plants in China.
