Longtop Financial Tech IPO

Reading Time: 3 minutes

I didn’t pay much attention to Chinese IPOs listed in US lately. This spring (March) I got into XFML, which is a big mess. Recently I traded WX (Wuxi Pharma Tech), which I think is the best Chinese IPO this year so far. But I am not a biotech/pharma guy, and I felt WX valuation was not cheap shortly after IPO, so I decided to sell it.

Today I happened to read that Longtop Financial Tech (LFT, 东南融通), an IT and software provider for financial services in Xiameng, China, will be listed in NYSE this week. You can read its prospectus here and listen to its roadshow at IPOHome. I have not got into the financial details, but from my preliminary analysis, this is a solid company in a fast growth industry (financial services in China).

From IPOHome, it will be priced between $14 to 16, and will debut this week. Note Goldman Sachs (Asia) will be the underwriter.
