BEIJING (Reuters) – TikTok-owner ByteDance is in discussions to list its Chinese short video app Douyin in Hong Kong, according to two people familiar with the situation.
ByteDance has discussed internally about the potential scenario and its representatives have met several investment banks in recent weeks to talk about such a possibility for Douyin, according to one of the people.
TikTok is not available in China and Douyin is TikTok’s Chinese counterpart.
A Douyin spokeswoman declined to comment.
