China Takes AIM at UK Funds

Related entries: Corporate News, General, Investment, News

Bodisen, a Chinese organic fertilizer maker, is the latest (and largest) Chinese listing on Londons Alternative Investment Market (AIM). It raised GBP12 million, giving it a market cap of GBP162 m, and is the first Chinese company to have a dual listing on the American Stock Exchange and AIM.

The company is run by former Chinese business woman of the year, Karen Qiong Wang, and the company has been listed by Forbes as one of the top 100 growth companies in China.

Private Chinese companies have long been starved of capital and are increasingly attracted to the London market, especially AIM, as it offers attractive valuations compared to Hong Kong, but avoids much of the costly regulation of the US.
