The China Securities Regulatory Commission said on Thursday it had not conducted any assessment regarding a potential resumption of Ant Group’s mega IPO, which was abruptly halted in November 2020. The Chinese securities watchdog made the statement in response to a Thursday report from Bloomberg which said the regulator was in “early stage discussions” on the matter. While denying the Ant IPO news, the CSRC added that it will support overseas and domestic listings for qualified platforms. Ant Group also denied it was attempting to revive its IPO plans in a late Thursday announcement, adding that the company is “focused on rectification work under the guidance of regulators.” [CSRC, in Chinese]
