If Angelalign Technology continues a similar growth rate on its first day of trading, it will surpass short-video giant Kuaishou Technology (1024) as the second-best performing new listing on record, whose shares jumped 161 percent on debut in February, equivalent to a more than HK$22,000 gain per board lot of new shares.

Yuexiu Services introduced 10 cornerstone investors who agreed to subscribe HK$777.2 million worth of shares, about a third of total fundraising. The investors include New China Asset Management, Kaiser Private Equity Fund, Crotona Assets and SensePower Management.
Chairman Lin Feng said the group has its unique advantages in its transit-oriented development comprehensive property management capabilities under the support of its three state-owned shareholders, namely Yuexiu Property, Guangzhou Metro, and Guangzhou Yuexiu.
Besides just focusing on the Guangzhou area, Lin emphasized that they will also actively expand their development into other cities.
And Chinese pressure equipment manufacturer Morimatsu International relaunched its IPO today, lowering the fundraising size from HK$980 million to HK$620 million.
The company postponed the flotation in March, saying it needs more time to obtain clearance from the regulators.
