Simpson Thacher, Latham act on Xpeng Motor’s NYEx IPO

Simpson Thacher & Bartlett and Fangda Partners have advised Chinese smart electric vehicle manufacturer Xpeng Motors on its $1.5 billion IPO on the New York Stock Exchange, with JunHe and Latham & Watkins advising the underwriters.

Established in 2015, Xpeng completed its Series C+ round financing of $500 million in early August. It is the second China EV manufacturer listed in U.S. this month, after Li Auto’s $1.1 billion IPO on the Nasdaq.

The Simpson Thacher team was led by partners Kevin Kennedy, Celia Lam and Yi Gao, while the JunHe team was led by partners Wang Yi and Wan Jing. Harneys represented the issuer on offshore law. 

The underwriters for Xpeng’s IPO included Credit Suisse Securities, J.P. Morgan Securities, BofA Securities, ABCI Securities, BOCI Asia, Futu Inc, Haitong International Securities and Tiger Brokers.
