Leapmotor has initiated the process for an overseas initial public offering, information published on the official website of the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) at the end of last month showed.
The company submitted to the CSRC for approval materials for an application for an initial public offering of shares abroad, including common shares, preferred shares and other types of shares and derivative forms of shares, the information showed.
The CSRC has received these materials, and information published on its official website showed that it did not disclose the location of Leapmotor's planned IPO or the target amount of financing.
Last October, Bloomberg said Leapmotor was considering a Hong Kong IPO that could raise at least $1 billion, citing people familiar with the matter.
