Citi’s Issuer Services, acting through Citibank, N.A., has been appointed by Zhejiang Yongtai Technology Co., Ltd. (“Yongtai”) – a leading manufacturer of fluorine-containing fine chemicals in the industry – to act as the Depositary Bank for its Global Depositary Receipt (“GDR”) Program.
Yongtai’s GDR Program was established in connection with a US$70 million initial public offering of its GDRs, priced at US$9.41 per GDR. The GDRs are listed on the London Stock Exchange under the symbol “YTT”. Each GDR represents five (5) A shares. Yongtai’s A shares are listed and traded on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange under the stock code 002326. This is the first Shenzhen Stock Exchange listed company to issue and list GDRs on the London Stock Exchange through the Shenzhen-London Stock Connect program.
“We are pleased to be the Depositary Bank for Yongtai’s LSE-Listed GDR Program, as well as serve as the depositary bank for the first ever Shenzhen-London Stock Connect GDR program,” said Dirk Jones, Global Head of Issuer Services at Citi. “Citi’s cross-regional capabilities, global network, the ability to enhance investor access, and our experience gained from the previous GDR programs will serve Yongtai well. We expect to see more issuers raise capital and brand themselves through the Connect Scheme.”
