Coach to list on the Hong Kong stock exchange

Known for its luxurious handbags, leather goods firm Coach hailing from the United States is keen on etching a mark in China. The firm, in particular, will issue up to 293.6 million Hong Kong depositary receipts as it lists shares in Hong Kong. Also, Coach has decided to swing away from public offerings and offer the shares by way of introduction with no funds being raised. As the luxury goods market further blows out of proportion in the ever-expanding and growing Chinese markets, Coach is currently drawing out plans to set up about 30 stores in China by the upcoming year. With this, Coach joins the ranks of other luxury brands, including Prada and Jimmy Choo, who have had listings in Hong Kong.
