DLA Piper has advised Xinjiang Goldwind Science & Technology Co Ltd (Goldwind) in its initial public offering (IPO), placed on 8 October, on the Main Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

This is the first time an A-share company listed on the SME board of the Shenzhen Stock Exchange has listed in Hong Kong, and is thus far the second largest IPO of PRC companies in Hong Kong in 2010. Goldwind successfully raised more than HK$7.1 billion through this IPO (excluding any over-allotment option which may be exercised).

Esther Leung, partner and co-head of Asia Capital Markets of DLA Piper, led the deal with Liu Wei and Gene Buttrill. Hong Kong-based team members included Eugene Choi, Phil Lam, Cynthia Tan, Yeti Ho, Gu Minxia, Shirley Fu, Vivian Ji, while the Beijing team included Vivian Liu, Li Xiao, Victor Zhang, Owen Au-Yeung and Amy Li. The team advised Goldwind on both Hong Kong and US laws.

The joint book runners are China International Capital Corporation Hong Kong Securities Limited, J.P. Morgan Securities (Asia Pacific) Ltd., Citigroup Global Markets Asia Limited, Goldman Sachs (Asia) LLC and Hai Tong Capital (HK) Limited.
