Howse Williams Bowers ("HWB"), a leading Hong Kong independent law firm, advised Able Engineering Holdings ("Able"), as the Hong Kong legal counsel, on its HK$550 million share offering, which was a spin-off from Hong Kong listed company, Vantage International (Holdings) Limited ("Vantage"). Ample Capital acted as the sole sponsor while Ample Orient, Convoy Investment Services, First Shanghai Securities and Guoyuan Capital (Hong Kong) acted as joint bookrunners and lead managers. The shares commenced trading on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited on 20 February 2017.
