Corporate Practice

Debt Financing

We advise on various types of debt financing ranging from acquisition financing to property development financing, including bilateral loan transactions, club or syndicated facilities and placement of private and listed bonds (including plain vanilla bonds, high yield bonds, and convertible bonds).  We also advise clients on secondary debt trading, local participation and bond transfers as well as debt restructuring.

We actively serve the investment bank and asset management divisions of Chinese state-owned banks, global financial institutions, and listed companies, in every step of their complex and diverse range of debt financings.  Our service includes structuring and negotiating the transaction, preparing and reviewing transaction documents, preparing information memoranda, preparing due diligence reports and responding to due diligence enquiries.

Our team works closely with our corporate colleagues to support their M&A transactions and pre-IPO debt or equity financings.  Our in-depth understanding of the Hong Kong Listing Rules and the Hong Kong Stock Exchange's acceptable pre-IPO investment practices is invaluable to our clients in navigating the increasingly intensive regulatory environment of IPO related debt financing transactions.
