Davis Polk and Simpson Thacher land roles on $125m US listing for Chinese internet giant
US pair Davis Polk & Wardwell and Simpson Thacher & Bartlett have scored mandates on the planned New York listing of Chinese internet company Baidu's online travel unit. The listing of Qunar Cayman Islands, valued at $125m (£78m), comes as China's big four internet companies compete with each other to grow their businesses abroad. The initial public offering (IPO) is thought to be the largest by a Chinese company in the US for two years. Davis Polk won the role of issuers' counsel, fielding a team led by Beijing-based capital markets partner Li He.
