Corporate & Securities partner Thomas Kollar, who appears as member of Editorial Board for FinanceAsia’s 2023 magazine, is quoted on DCM market outlook.
“We expect to see some further opening of the Chinese DCM markets in 2Q23; however generally new issuance high yield activity will be muted out of China for 2023. Consents and exchanges will continue to be a big theme in the Chinese DCM market.
“We expect to see more private and club deals in both the DCM and ECM secondary space across APAC. India will be a bright spot on both sides, with meaningful activity following the elections in the spring. We anticipate further interest by regional Southeast Asian corporates listing in Hong Kong, and a renewed interest in US IPOs, by Chinese and other APAC-based issuers."
