KEY STAT | Chinese companies raised record-breaking amount of money in global IPOs

Written by Julianna Wu Published on 

The USD 129 billion raised in 2020 mark a historical high for Chinese companies.

Thanks to a strong post-pandemic rebound in the capital markets, Chinese companies have collected USD 129 billion through initial public offerings (IPOs) on exchanges around the globe in 2020, a record-high for firms with their major business in mainland China, said Bloomberg.

The amount corresponds to 37% of the total capital proceeds from share offerings globally this year, the highest percentage since 2009.

JD Health (HKEX: 6618), the online healthcare unit of e-commerce giant (NASDAQ:JD; HKEX: 9618), which celebrated its USD 3.5 billion Hong Kong debut in early December, accounts for the biggest Chinese IPO so far in 2020.
