J&T Express said in a statement that the public offer price was HK$ 12 ($1.53) per offer Share, with net proceeds from the global offering amounting to HK$ 3.53 billion ($450 million).

J&T Express will also utilize the funds to expand into new markets and diversify its service offerings as well as for research and development and technology innovations, as it seeks to deliver faster and more convenient logistics services to consumers globally.

Founded in Indonesia in 2015, J&T Express expanded rapidly into six other Southeast Asian countries before entering the Chinese market in 2020.

Cited Frost & Sullivan, J&T Express said the firm was the number one express delivery operator in Southeast Asia by parcel volume in 2022, and among the leading operators in China by market share.

Leveraging the strong growth of its business in China and Southeast Asia, the company further expanded its reach into five countries in Latin America, Middle East and North Africa in 2022.

At present, J&T’s express delivery operations span 13 countries.

According to him, the listing on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange marks a significant milestone in the company’s development.
