According to recent regulatory news, the Initial Public Offering (IPO) of Ebang Communication can be in trouble.
Ebang Communication is one of the largest bitcoin mining chip makers in China. In June this year, the company has shown its interest to go public on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEX). A recent criminal investigation may prevent Ebang Communication from conducting an IPO.
Ebang has become embroiled in a criminal investigation which may pose a challenge to the IPO of the company. According to the investigation report, there was a transaction of $76.18 million (approximately 524. Million Chinese yuan) between the major mining devices manufacturer Ebang Communication and wealth management company Yindou.com. In March-April, Ebang transferred 380 million yuan and kept 144.9 million yuan pending. According to Sina Finance, Ebang received this money in exchange of laundering money, inflating sales revenue, or collecting a fictitious sales contract to increase the chance of securing a public listing on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
