Three Chinese firms, led by artificial intelligence (AI) software company Beijing Fourth Paradigm, are aiming to raise up to US$280 million in Hong Kong initial public offerings launched on Monday. Beijing Fourth Paradigm, an AI start-up, is aiming to raise up to US$144 million by selling 18.4 million shares in a price range of HK$55.60 to HK$61.16 each, according to its regulatory filings.

Three cornerstone investors, headed by New China Capital Management, have subscribed for about US$96.8 million worth of stock, which equates to 70.6 per cent of the IPO, the filings showed.

Fourth Paradigm was added to the US “Entity List” this year, which means US suppliers are barred from shipping US technology to it unless they can procure a difficult-to-obtain licence from the Commerce Department.
