Aequitas Research puts out a weekly update on the deals that have been covered by the team recently along with updates for upcoming IPOs.

Hong Kong's IPO pipeline is looking like it will be packed with blockbuster IPOs comprising of China ADRs' homecoming and unicorns looking to dual list in Hong Kong and China. This week, it was reported Vipshop is the newest US-listed Chinese company to make a move to list closer to home.

Beyond that, Ant Financial has made preparatory filing with China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) which will get the company ready for its dual listing in Hong Kong and STAR market as mentioned by the company last month. SenseTime was also said to be considering a dual listing in Hong Kong and China. Nongfu Spring (NON HK) got approved by HKEX this week to move forward with its IPO and will be pre-marketing next week.

Our coverage for upcoming Hong Kong IPOs and secondary listings this week:

Earlier coverage on Nongfu Spring (NON HK):

IPO pipeline in other Southeast Asia markets seem to be warming up finally as MR D.I.Y. Group (1706769D MK) was said to be reviving its IPO plans next month after it delayed its IPO due to COVID-19. Glove maker Harps is also jumping on the bandwagon as it just hired banks to push forward with an IPO likely in the first half of 2021.

In Philippines, Areit (AREIT PM) performance was disappointing as it broke IPO price on debut and closed the week 10% lower. There were reports that some brokers were unaware of a special licence required to trade REITS which had resulted in the lack of retail orders.

Lastly, in the U.S., KE Holdings Inc (BEKE US) debut did exceedingly well, closing 87% higher on the first day before retracing on Friday to close out the week with still about 65% up from IPO price. The strong performance could continue to spur more China ADRs to list despite the homecoming efforts by existing companies. Xpeng Motors (XPEV US) filed last week whereas Lufax has filed confidentially that could raise about US$2-3bn.
