Dentons Hong Kong Webinar: Debt Capital Market offerings by Chinese companies in Hong Kong

March 5, 2021

The Asian US dollar bond market has grown rapidly in recent years. At approximately US$1.1 trillion in outstanding bonds, it now ranks on par with US bank loan and high yield bond markets, which each total around US$1 trillion. Greater China (including Hong Kong and Macau) now accounts for over two-thirds of all outstanding bonds in the Asian US dollar bond space. Hong Kong is by far the largest offshore center for bond offerings by Chinese companies and, in 2020, Chinese companies raised around US$200 billion in the Hong Kong bond markets. In this one-hour webinar, partner Man Chiu Lee and associate Ningxin Sun discussed common structures for bond offerings by Chinese companies in Hong Kong, related documentation and PRC legal issues, the HKEx and MOX listing processes/requirements and practical tips for a successful bond offering.
