Shenzhen tops Asian IPO market in April

The Shenzhen stock exchange hosted four out of the top 10 IPOs in Asia in April amid relatively subdued activities across the region.

ChiNext, the Nasdaq-style board under Shenzhen Stock Exchange, hosted four out of the 10 top Asian IPO and was the busiest stock exchange in Asia last month. 

However, Shanghai Stock Exchange won the largest deal in April by hosting the IPO of chemical company Ningxia Baofeng Energy Group, which raised $1.2 billion through its listing on the mainboard.
