The China-based company said it would sell 30.4 million American Depositary Shares priced between $16.50 and $18.50 per ADS. Each ADS would represent four of Class A ordinary shares. (https://bit.ly/3d4LGS7)

At the top end of the range, Miniso would be valued at $10.18 billion.

Miniso’s plans to go public come on the heels of numerous blockbuster IPOs this year, including those of Palantir Technologies and Snowflake in recent weeks. A number of Chinese companies, which have debuted in U.S. stock markets this year, have also attracted strong investor interest. Earlier this year, SoftBank-backed KE Holdings , which owns real estate brokerage brand Lianjia and housing transactions platform Beike, sold over $2 billion worth of shares after its IPO was priced above range.

Entities affiliated with Tencent would own 4.8% of Miniso’s stock after the offering, the filing showed.

Goldman Sachs and BofA Securities are the underwriters for the offering.
