According to public information, Ruoyu technology was founded in 2012 by Stanford alumni Liu Zihong, Wei Peng and Yu Xiaojun. Through the core flexible technology independently developed by Ruoyu, we produce full flexible displays and full flexible sensors, as well as a full range of new generation of human-computer interaction products including folding screen mobile phones and other intelligent devices.
In the domestic science and technology circle, there are many disputes about Ruoyu science and technology. One of the most well-known is the battle for the first folding screen mobile phone in 2019. In recent years, there have been repeated media questions about the mass production and yield of Ruoyu technology products. When will the science and technology innovation board tour of Rouyu technology be officially launched? The market will continue to watch.
Science and technology board of science and technology
Flexible screen first brother Rouyu technology has been on the market for a long time. Recently, the market has once again heard the voice of rushing for examination on its science and technology innovation board.
Chinese flexible display maker Ruoyu technology has shelved its U.S. listing plan and instead sought an initial public offering of up to 12 billion yuan (US $1.8 billion) on the Shanghai Science and technology innovation board, according to a person familiar with the matter, according to a person familiar with the matter.
According to people familiar with the matter, the company plans to file a listing application as soon as December, and the companys valuation may rise to more than $8bn, higher than the valuation sought in last years round of private equity financing. The final fund-raising scale of Rouyu technology depends on the market conditions and may still change.
However, for the news, Rouyu technology did not respond, and representatives of Rouyu technology did not comment. According to the previous report of pembo, Rouyu technology has secretly applied for an IPO in the United States, which may raise about $1 billion, but it did not come true in the end.
Although it has not been confirmed, the back a signs of Rouyu technology are still very obvious. According to Tianyan information, on June 30, 2020, the whole process of Ruoyu Technology Co., Ltd. will be changed from Shenzhen Ruoyu Technology Co., Ltd. to Shenzhen Ruoyu Technology Co., Ltd., with the registered capital increased from 120 million yuan to 360 million yuan, and the market entity type was changed from a limited liability company to a joint stock limited company.

In addition to the sponsor of CITIC Securities, the audit agency selected by Rouyu technology is Dahua accounting firm. At the end of September this year, CITIC Securities disclosed the second progress report of Ruoyu technologys IPO guidance work, which has not been updated.
If Ruoyu science and technology plans to raise as much as 12 billion yuan, it is expected that it will steadily buy the top five levels among many science and technology innovation board enterprises. Adding the over raised effect of popular enterprises on the science and technology innovation board, how to tell the capital story of capital utilization is an important issue that Ruoyu technology and its sponsor securities companies are concerned about.
Flexibility + to build core technology
From Huawei mate x to millet mix alpha and Samsung Galaxy fold, once the high-end and strange appearance folding screen is released, it has caused a fierce competition among technology enthusiasts.
