“We are especially honored as this award reflects a year’s worth of efforts rather than a single deal,” said Jeremy Choy, Managing Director and Head of M&A for China Renaissance, who attended the award ceremony on behalf of the firm. “It is a testament to our clarity of purpose, the strength of our team and, most importantly, the trust of our clients whose interests are at the heart of everything we do.
“The deals we worked on this year demanded an evolution in our approach as the development of China’s TMT sector creates ever more innovative business models and increases the complexity of transactions.”
The award caps a banner year for China Renaissance as it continued to grow the advisory platform as part of the firm’s support for China’s high-growth “new economy” companies. In the first three quarters alone, the firm closed 37 deals with a total transaction value exceeding $11.5 billion, among them:
- Advising the bike-sharing company Mobike in raising nearly $1 billion in equity capital from prominent strategic and financial investors, both domestic and international.
- Advising longstanding client JD.com on the spinoff of its financial services subsidiary JD Finance, and its simultaneous capital raising, for a total transaction value of approximately $5.3 billion.
- Serving as exclusive financial advisor to the logistics firm GOGOVAN of Hong Kong and the online market place 58.com of Beijing in their cross-border merger, hailed as creating Hong Kong’s first ‘unicorn.’
- Serving as exclusive financial advisor in forging a strategic cooperation agreement between Maoyan and Weying, two leading online ticketing platforms in China, in a total transaction value exceeding $2.0 billion.
China Renaissance’s M&A practice supports the firm’s overall mission to be the leading financial partner to China’s new economy companies, those with progressive, often tech-oriented business models and high-growth potential. Its clients are entrepreneurial innovators who are constantly pushing limits in their fields and pursing outcomes that can change the shape of industries and influence people’s everyday experience of life.
