China Sets New Rules for Overseas IPOs. What It Means for DiDi, Alibaba, and Others.

China has announced new rules on overseas IPOs, potentially sparking the resumption of Chinese companies listing in New York.

Under the new rules, the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC) will vet any overseas listing applications, effective from March 31. The regulator has the power to block such IPOs, and the rules make clear listings must not endanger national security.
