Conyers Dill & Pearman has advised China Metal Resources Utilization on the $90m (£54m) listing of shares on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
The company is the successor to Gushan Environmental Energy, a Cayman incorporated company for which Conyers has acted since its incorporation in 2006.
Gushan was listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in 2008, was privatised by way of merger under the Cayman merger regime in 2012 and, following the distribution of the assets held by Gushan to the company, was successfully listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in 2014.
Conyers understands that this is the first successful re-listing on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange of assets of a company formerly listed on the NYSE and privatised by way of merger under the Cayman merger regime.
Richard Hall of Conyers’ Hong Kong office advised on the matter, working alongside Herbert Smith Freehills, Chen & Co Law Firm, Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom and Haiwen & Partners.
