Shein IPO: How to buy shares in Shein?

The fast-fashion giant has filed for an IPO and is expected to list in the U.S. in 2024.

About Shein

With a network of manufacturers and extensive online advertising, Shein has become a leading e-commerce player. The company has filed the paperwork for a confidential IPO with the Securities and Exchange Commission, signalling its plans to go public on a stock exchange in the U.S. in the future. 

With a focus on fast fashion, Shein has finetuned logistics and just-in-time production methods to produce very low cost items. The business has grown rapidly since its founding in 2008, quickly closing in on rivals H&M and Zara. The Chinese firm now operates in more than 150 countries and is headquartered in Singapore. 

Shein is reportedly targeting a valuation between US$80b and US$90b in 2024. It was valued at US$66b in its latest fundraising round in May 2023. The listing could raise its profile and help the business access more funds to grow further. 

Shein operates in a competitive industry, with thin margins. The company has been trying to diversify its offerings beyond clothes and accessories, as well as gaining a stronger foothold in the U.S. The company purchased one third of SPARC Group, the joint venture between Authentic Brands Group and Simon Property Group. This means the firm can now work with another rival, Forever 21, and have access to physical retail spaces. 

Shein has a number of regulatory issues that could affect the IPO. It has faced allegations that it uses materials made with forced labour, that there are poor working conditions in its factories and that it has infringed copyright on designs. The fast fashion industry has also been criticised for its environmental damage. 

The confidential IPO means few details are currently available, including official information about financials and timing. If the IPO occurs, Shein’s listing documents will be released shortly before the selected date. Investors can keep an eye out for what could become one of the largest listings in several years.

What is the expected Shein share price?

The expected share price of Shein will not be available until the IPO is closer, but it is expected to be one of the biggest IPOs in recent years. The company received a valuation of $US$66b in May 2023 and Bloomberg reported in early November a target of up to US$90b for the float.

What is the Shein IPO date?

There is no date for the Shein IPO just yet, but it will reportedly happen in 2024.
