Huobi is planning for a reverse IPO attempt according to documents posted by the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEX).

Pantronics Holdings Limited, acquired by Huobi last August disclosed in a filing that it will change its name to “Huobi Technology Holdings Limited”.

Huobi is the majority shareholder of Pantronics Holdings Limited with over 73 percent stake at the company. 221 million shares of Pantronics Holdings Limited were transferred to the Huobi Group upon the acquisition.

According to the document:

“While the Group continues to develop the relatively stable manufacturing businesses, the Group is looking into further expansion to the fast growing technology related businesses,”

The acquisition of Pantronics Holdings Limited will provide Huobi the opportunity to go public in Hong Kong.

“Emerging technologies, such as mobile internet, AI, big data, and especially blockchain technology are radically transforming traditional business models. The knowledge, experiences, and management skills that have allowed Leon to build one of the most successful digital asset companies in the world will be invaluable to the Pantronics team.”

Chris Lee, Pantronics’ current executive director, Pantronics holdings Limited
