"Our client SBB is a retailer and wholesaler of men’s ware aimed at upmarket middle class gentlemen, mainly in China through a distribution network of over 400 stores. It controls the high margin design, branding, warehousing and marketing, outsourcing the low margin manufacturing" says Barry Palte

"SBB was growing steadily and was very profitable with net profit after tax of around RMB 100 m and had ambitions to grow quickly to 1000 stores

The company wished to become a publicly listed company to gain prestige, lift its image with suppliers and customers, and to increase its corporate governance

SBB was introduced to BlueMount to ascertain if it could be listed on the ASX, as Asian stock markets in Shanghai and Singapore were either closed or had very long waiting lists" says Barry Palte

After ascertaining that SBB was a good candidate, easily qualifying for listing, and after receiving encouragement from the ASX, BlueMount was appointed Corporate Advisor and Listing Manager and assumed 100% responsibility for the listing" says Barry Palte

BlueMount then recruited the Team necessary to carry out the listing duties, which included lawyers, auditors, tax advisors, stockbrokers, public relations consultants, directors, CFO and the company secretary.

Over a period of 9 months the Team headed by Barry Palte worked with the major shareholder and CEO to fulfill all of the many listing requirements to achieve the IPO

In November 2013 SBB successfully listed on the ASX with a market capitalization of A$ 94 m and was subsequently included in the ASX All Ordinaries Index of the top 500 listed companies

"We continue to increase our participation with Chinese clients to achieve their IPO’s on the ASX by providing solutions to sometimes complex transactions" says Barry Palte
