Sequoia Scores Again With 2nd
Chinese IPO in NY This Year - ZTO
The biggest winner from the recent NYSE listing of China's ZTO Express must be early investor Sequoia Capital China, which earned a reported return in the billion dollar range.
Xing Liu said the venture firm made three investments since 2013 totaling under $1 million and had a pre-IPO share of 7.2% in ZTO.
The IPO raised $1.4 billion to rank as the biggest public offering in the U.S. this year and second to Alibaba as largest U.S. IPO for a China-based company. ZTO counts as the 5th Chinese firm to go public in New York this year, as U.S. listings from China pick up.
Interestingly, Liu is also the Sequoia partner behind the firms' investment in a second Chinese company, English language learning app 51 Talk, which went public in New York in January.
