$OG Onion Global is a China based online fashion eCommerce marketplace. The company will list on May 11th selling shares at $7.25/share raising about $67.5M at about $600M Market Cap.

$OG has received at least $128M from investors including Li Bai Global, Pingsan Bai, YGC Holdings, and ECSH Xianlv Limited.
$OG fresh, fashionable and future brands, which it refers to as the 3Fs across China and parts of Asia.

$OG has $40M in cash and will raise another $67M with $6M in Free cash flow for 2020.
At $600M Market cap and $40M in Operating margin they seem reasonably valued, relative to $CPNG, $FTCH and $SE, but $OG has much lower margins.
While I think this is an interesting company with a good brand, I am personally not buying shares at the IPO and have no interest until I see growth in other regions. Fashion as an eCommerce segment has tremendous competition in China as well.
