Squire Patton Boggs lawyers from China, Hong Kong, Germany, and Poland have advised Feike, the German holding of a leading manufacturer of children’s footwear and apparel in China, on its listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The public offering was conducted in Germany and Poland.
The Feike group sells its products of leather and canvas shoes, sandals, and sneakers in China under three brands, ‘Feike’, ‘Atongmu’ and, for both children’s clothing and shoes, ‘Lanmao.’ Each brand targets different age groups, from young children to teenagers, and is positioned in different price segments.
The Squire Patton Boggs team was led by Partner Benjamin Kroymann in the firm’s Shanghai office, and included Furong Ren and Leon Xu in Shanghai, Francis Li and Dennis Chan in Hong Kong, Kai Mertens and Navid Anderson in Berlin, Andreas Fillmann and Thomas Busching in Frankfurt, and Marcin Wnukowski, Pawel Magierowski, and Dominika Kupisz in Warsaw.
“We’re pleased to have acted for Feike AG on this important step in its ongoing business growth,” commented Benjamin Kroymann. “There continues to be a steady stream of Chinese businesses looking to raise capital abroad. Their expansion strategies reflect the changing consumer demands and a rapidly growing consumer market which we have seen emerge in the Chinese economy over the past few years.”
