“We congratulate Jenscare, one of the leading medical device manufacturers, on beginning its new chapter by listing on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange,” said Hong Kong partner Matt Emsley. “We are delighted to have worked with the company and the joint sponsors on this IPO and wish their continued success.”
