Chinese Semiconductor Firm 3Peak Looks to Raise $339 Million in STAR Market IPO
Chinese fabless semiconductor firm 3Peak Inc. is looking to raise 2.31 billion yuan ($339 million) in an initial public offering (IPO) on Shanghai’s Nasdaq-style STAR Market.
The company, which kicked off its subscription exercise on Wednesday, is offering 20 million common shares at 115.71 yuan apiece. The shares have been oversubscribed 4,608 times, the company said on Thursday.
3Peak will allocate the proceeds for analog products and tools, its research center, and operating funds, it said.
Shanghai-based Haitong Securities is the principal underwriter for the deal.
3Peak, set up in 2012 and located in East China’s Suzhou, produces high-performing and ultra-precision analog IC products and services. Its products are applied to a slew of industries such as medical equipment, automotive electronics, communication systems, information security, and industrial systems.
The company’s top clients include Samsung’s Harman, telecommunications and information technology player ZTE Corp., IoT solutions provider Hikvision, and intelligent speech developer iFlytek.
3Peak clocked 302 million yuan in annual revenue in the first half of this year, a 211.45% year-on-year growth, as per its prospectus. In addition, 3Peak’s assets under management stood at 286 million yuan in 2019.
Hoaxin Venture Partners, a semiconductor fund co-launched in 2011 by state-owned SDIC and SVIC No.28 New Technology Business Investment, will remain the largest shareholder in 3Peak with an 18.55% stake. Other shareholders include Chinese tech giant Huawei Technologies’ investment arm Hubble Technologies (6%) and Oriza Holdings’ Oriza Hua (1.5%).
Hubble exclusively made an unspecified investment in 3Peak in July 2019. Oriza Hua along with Sunic Capital, Hua Ventures, and Shenzhen Huiyou Investment had together made an equity investment in the company in January 2019.
