Citi Appointed as Depositary Bank for Ming Yang Smart Energy Group Limited GDR Program -- the Fifth Shanghai-London Stock Connect GDR Program

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 13, 2022-- Citi’s Issuer Services business, acting through Citibank, N.A., has been appointed by Ming Yang Smart Energy Group Limited (“Ming Yang”) – a leading wind turbine manufacturer in China – to act as Depositary Bank for its Global Depositary Receipt (“GDR”) program.

Ming Yang’s GDR program was established in connection with a US$656.9 million initial public offering of its GDRs (or US$706.9 million, if the underwriters exercise their over-allotment option in full), priced at US$21.00 per GDR. The GDRs are listed on the Shanghai-London Stock Connect (“SLSC”) segment of the Main market of the London Stock Exchange (“LSE”) under the symbol “MYSE”. Each GDR represents five (5) A shares. Ming Yang’s A shares are listed and traded on the Shanghai Stock Exchange (“SSE”) under the stock code 601615.

“As a leading wind turbine manufacturer, we aim to become a full lifecycle renewable solutions provider. Through technological and business innovations, we have developed into a leading smart energy enterprise in China with global influence, gradually becoming an industry leader in providing integrated wind power, photovoltaics, power storage and hydrogen power solutions. The GDR issuance of Ming Yang Smart Energy will promote the implementation of our strategies and help the company's internationalization process.” said Mr. Zhang Chuanwei, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and General Manager of Ming Yang.

“We are truly grateful to be appointed as the Depositary Bank for Ming Yang’s LSE-Listed GDR Program, and it is our honor to be the depositary bank for all five SLSC GDR programs listed so far,” said Dirk Jones, Global Head of Issuer Services at Citi. “Citi’s cross-regional capabilities, global network, the ability to enhance investor access, and our experience gained from the previous SLSC GDR programs will serve Ming Yang well. We expect to see more and more issuers raise capital and brand themselves through the Connect Scheme in the future.”
