(Reuters) – Fast fashion firm Shein has held talks with the London Stock Exchange about the possibility of a public listing in the United Kingdom, Sky News reported on Monday, citing sources.
Shein’s chairman, Donald Tang, met executives from the LSE and other stakeholders in the UK economy during a visit to London last week, according to the report.
London Stock Exchange Group (LON:) did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment. Shein declined to comment.
Last month, Reuters reported that the China-founded firm had confidentially filed to go public in the United States.
Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase (NYSE:) and Morgan Stanley have been hired as lead underwriters of the initial public offering (IPO), and Singapore-based Shein could launch its new share sale in 2024, the sources said at the time.
The company founded in mainland China in 2012 was valued at more than $60 billion in a May fundraising, down by a third from a funding round last year.
