Xiaomi’s much-published initial public offering has raised $4.7 billion for the organization, and has esteemed the Chinese cell phone producer at $54 billion. The IPO was led in Hong Kong, and the offers were sold at HK$17 per unit. The valuation and capital implantation is altogether lower than was earlier expected, and the overall result is much more conservative than most spectators had accepted would be the outcome.

As indicated by reports by Bloomberg, Billionaire George Soros and Chinese investment firm Hillhouse Capital bought Xiaomi IPO shares, and other institutional financial specialists including Qualcomm are accepted to have participated in the IPO.

Xiaomi has been seeing rapid growth globally, and is presently the biggest cell phone seller in India by shipments. This has a considerable measure to do with the way that India is quickly receiving the online model for cell phones, and an ever increasing number of Indians are growing confortable with purchasing their cell phones online. Xiaomi, which has pushed the online-first retail display, is one the greatest recipients of this adjustment in purchasing habits.

In any case, the aggressive idea of the cell phone industry and the consistent need to improve implies that even a highly successful organization like Xiaomi can’t take its position. Another key factor is Xiaomi’s lack of product versatility; the organization is fundamentally in the matter of affordable cell phones, and has no other truly viable business openings. This could be the key reason behind Xiaomi’s IPO being on the moderate side. The IPO was at first anticipated that would esteem the Chinese cell phone producer essentially higher than the $54 billion valuation that has at last been settled on.
