What You Need to Know About the Premier Destinations for Overseas Listings


Please join us for an informative afternoon seminar in the three locations in China indicated below, addressing what is often one of the most important questions faced by Chinese companies — which is the right overseas stock exchange for listing. Our panel of speakers includes leading securities experts from London, Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai. We also have guest speakers from PricewaterhouseCoopers joining us.

Deciding where to list overseas can have lasting consequences for a company.  The Nasdaq National Market, the Hong Kong Stock Exchange and the London Stock Exchange and AIM market have become the principal markets for an ever-growing number of China-based companies, but they differ in important ways. Understanding the similarities and differences between these markets is thus crucial for Chinese companies, underwriters, venture capital investors and other participants in the IPO process.  In this second installment of Morrison & Foerster's highly popular annual Toolkit series of seminars, our panel of legal and accounting experts from London, Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong will examine the practical issues and important trends you need to know about.

This seminar will offer participants specific information on:

  • The key listing requirements for each market and what you should be doing ahead of time to prepare
  • Corporate governance issues
  • Best practices for minimizing risk in an IPO
  • How the different regulators view China-based companies
  • The audit process and understanding the financial reporting obligations
  • Case studies
