Chinese bubble tea company Chabaidao falls 30% in Hong Kong trading debut

Shares of Chinese bubble tea chain Chabaidao, officially listed as Sichuan Baicha Baidao Industrial, opened 10% lower in early trading in its Hong Kong debut, before plunging more than 30%.

It is currently trading at HK$12.32, well below its IPO offer price of HK$17.50.

The IPO is the largest listing in Hong Kong so far this year. The company said it raked in net proceeds of HK$2.59 billion ($330.5 million) from its IPO, before listing fees.

Chabaidao offered 90% of its 147.7 million shares in a global offering, while the remaining 10% was offered in a public offering in Hong Kong.

However, the public offering was only 0.5 times subscribed, leading the company to reallocate the remaining shares to the overall offering, which was 1.11 times subscribed.

Check out the businesses making headlines after hours.

  • Nucor — Shares fell 6.3% after the steelmaker’s first-quarter results missed estimates and it issued a lackluster outlook for the second quarter. First-quarter earnings per share of $3.46 fell below the FactSet consensus estimate of $3.67 earnings per share. Revenue of $8.14 billion was lower than the $8.26 billion estimate. Nucor expects second-quarter earnings to decline, citing “a decline in steel mill segment profits, primarily due to a decline in average selling prices partially offset by a slight increase in volumes.”
  • Cleveland-Cliffs — The steel producer lost nearly 3%. Cleveland-Cliffs’ first-quarter results fell short of analysts’ expectations, with adjusted earnings of 18 cents per share on revenue of $5.2 billion. Analysts surveyed by LSEG estimate earnings per share of 22 cents and revenue of $5.35 billion.
