Regulator Approval-Based IPO System


In a regulator/approval-based (as opposed to registration-based) IPO system, companies are required to obtain prior approval from a regulatory body and the necessary regulatory requirements (such as those on cash flow or profitability) before being able to go public. The regulator/approval-based system is traditionally used in China, with the exception of the STAR Market and ChiNext.
