The remaining proceeds will be used for the expansion of sales networks, working capital and other general corporate purposes.

The Appleby team was led by Judy Lee, a corporate partner in Appleby’s Hong Kong office, assisted by senior associate Chris Cheng. PC Woo & Co advised the company as to Hong Kong law and Commerce & Finance Law Offices advised the company as to PRC law, while Chiu & Partners advised the underwriters as to Hong Kong law and Jingtian & Gongcheng advised the underwriters as to PRC law.
