(Innovent) (HKEX: 01801), a world-class biopharmaceutical company that develops and commercializes high quality medicines, today announced that it has received the 10th Anniversary China Healthcare Investment Conference (CHIC) "IPO of the Year" Award.
As an influential communication platform in the healthcare industry, CHIC not only improves China's healthcare investment ecosystem, but also promotes the development of the industry. The award ceremony was held in Shanghai yesterday. The award aims to recognize companies that had successful IPO and have achieved outstanding performance in China's healthcare industry. Dr. Qinwei Zhou, Chief Operating Officer of Innovent Biologics, received the award on behalf of the company. After receiving the "IFR Asia-Pacific IPO of the Year 2018" and "IFR Asia Review Hong Kong Equity Issue of the Year 2018" awards, Innovent once again won a recognition in the investment community.
"Innovent was listed on the Main Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange on October 31, 2018. IPO for the company is like a young man who formally enters the adulthood, seizing new opportunities and embracing challenges," said Dr. Qinwei Zhou, Chief Operating Officer of Innovent Biologics. "We are honored to be recognized as the IPO of the Year. This will encourage us to pursue higher goals going forward. Thank you for placing your trust and confidence in Innovent!

Innovent was listed on the Main Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange on October 31, 2018. The stock price has increased over 100% since IPO. When Innovent launched its new share offering, in addition to getting strong support from ten well-known cornerstone investors, its international allocation also attracted an oversubscription rate of 15 times from high-quality well-known global investors, enabling the company to successfully launch the IPO in the global capital market. The IPO was priced at the top end of the prospective range and became the largest IPO fund raise for a pre-revenue biotech company.
