Leading international law firm Herbert Smith Freehills has advised Hua Hong Semiconductor Limited (“Hua Hong Semiconductor”) (01347.HK/ 688347.SSE) as its Hong Kong legal advisers on the Hong Kong law aspects of its RMB21.2 billion (US$2.96 billion) initial public offering and listing on the STAR Market of the Shanghai Stock Exchange. 

国际领先的律师事务所史密夫斐尔作为华虹半导体有限公司(“华虹半导体”) (01347.HK / 688347.SSE) 的香港法律顾问,为其212亿元人民币 (29.6亿美元) 首次公开发行及在上海证券交易所科创板上市提供香港法方面的法律服务。

This is the largest A-share listing in 2023 so far, and the third-largest listing on the STAR Market of the Shanghai Stock Exchange.

Hua Hong Semiconductor is a leading global pure-play semiconductor foundry. According to IC Insights, Hua Hong Semiconductor was ranked sixth among global foundries and was the largest in mainland China based on annual revenue in 2021.

Hua Hong Semiconductor debuted on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange in 2014, a listing on which Herbert Smith Freehills also advised.

"We are delighted to have worked with Hua Hong Semiconductor again on this new and successful listing on the STAR Market,” said Hong Kong partner Matt Emsley. "We congratulate Hua Hong Semiconductor, the leading semiconductor foundry in China and the world, on this successful IPO and wish them continued success."

Matt led the team advising Hua Hong Semiconductor on the listing, assisted by senior associates Maisie Ko and Ian Tam, associates Gigi Lo, Bryan Cheung and Samuel Au, and trainee solicitor Tiger Chan.

这是2023年到目前为止A股规模最大的上市,也是上海证券交易所科创板第三大上市。

华虹半导体是全球领先的特色工艺纯晶圆代工企业。根据IC Insights 发布的2021 年度全球晶圆代工企业的营业收入排名数据,华虹半导体位居第六位,也是中国大陆最大的专注特色工艺的晶圆代工企业。

华虹半导体于2014年在香港联交所上市,而史密夫斐尔当时亦为其香港上市提供法律服务。
