Miniso sold 30.4 million shares for $20 each on Wednesday after marketing them for $16.50 to $18.50.

The company’s backers include Tencent Holdings, according to its filings with the US Securities and Exchange Commission. Each depositary share will represent four ordinary shares.

The listing followed 33 others on US exchanges this year by companies based in China and Hong Kong that raised a combined $9.74 billion, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, that’s more than double last year’s total of about $4 billion raised in 35 listings.

The offering was led by Goldman Sachs Group and Bank of America. The shares are trading Thursday on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol MNSO.
