O2O home improvement firm debuts on Nasdaq
    2018-February-7  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

CHINESE vertically integrated online-to-offline (O2O) home improvement service and product provider SSLJ.com Ltd. rang the Nasdaq Stock Market opening bell in celebration of its Initial Public Offerings (IPO) Monday, notching the first Nasdaq IPO of a Chinese company this year.

SSLJ.com, trading under the ticker symbol of “SSLJ,” priced its initial public offering of 4 million Class A ordinary shares at a public offering price of US$5 per share for a total of US$20,000 in gross proceeds before expenses.

SSLJ.com started trading exactly at US$5 per share, but then slid as U.S. stocks continued its previous day’s sell-off on Monday, with the Dow recording its worst one-day point drop in history. At the close, the company’s shares tumbled 28.2 percent to US$3.59 a share.

“Our listing as a public company on the Nasdaq is a significant milestone for SSLJ, which will give us a better growth platform to create more value for clients and shareholders,” Wei Zheng, chairman and CEO of SSLJ.com, said at the opening bell ceremony.

Compared to traditional home improvement service providers, SSLJ.com’s O2O business model provides its customers with a highly cost efficient one-stop overall home improvement package and attracts online user traffic, Zheng believed.

According to its prospectus, the company plans to use the net proceeds of this offering primarily for general corporate purposes, which may include establishment of new branch companies and sales offices, expansion of existing branch companies, investment in product research and development, sales and marketing activities, etc.

Founded in July 2014, SSLJ’s revenue amounted to US$7.3 million during the six months ended June 30, 2017, with a net loss of US$9.2 million due to advertising activities in the second quarter of 2017 and an increased effort in building up its research and development department, the company said in the prospectus.
