Carlyle Congratulates ADICON on its HKEX Listing
Hong Kong, June 30, 2023 – ADICON Holdings Limited (“ADICON” or the “Company”), one of the top three independent clinical laboratory (“ICL”) service providers in China, today debuted on the Main Board of The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong with a total offering size of HK$408.9 million, as the Company looks to further strengthen and expand its service offerings and capitalize on the growing demand for healthcare testing services in China.
Carlyle invested in ADICON through Carlyle Asia Partners and became the Company’s Controlling Shareholder in 2018.
Ling Yang, Managing Director & Co-Head of Healthcare at Carlyle Asia and Chairwoman & Non-Executive Director of ADICON, congratulated the Company: “Since Carlyle’s investment in ADICON in 2018, the Company has transformed from being a founder-led business into a corporation that is led by a board of directors and an experienced management team. The successful Hong Kong listing of ADICON is a recognition of the Company’s achievements and we would like to thank and congratulate the founders, management team and everyone at ADICON. We believe the ICL market in China is still in a nascent stage and there remains significant room for the industry to grow. Carlyle will continue to work with ADICON’s management team and support the Company as it seeks to embark on its next phase of growth.”
As the Controlling Shareholder since 2018, Carlyle has worked with ADICON’s management team in seeking to enhance and strengthen the Company’s management capabilities, operational efficiency, business development capabilities, and corporate governance, which we believe aided the Company in its rapid growth during the three years ended December 31, 2020, 2021 and 2022.
