(Bloomberg) -- Credit Suisse Group AG has stopped working on the upcoming U.S. initial public offering of Chinese gay dating app Blued, according to people familiar with the matter.Credit Suisse joins other investment firms, including Citigroup Inc. and Bank of America Corp., that in recent months have dropped off the U.S. debuts of high-profile Chinese companies.

Since the summer, Credit Suisse’s name has vanished from the listing documents of podcast app Lizhi Inc., bitcoin mining machine maker Canaan Inc. and drone company EHang Holdings Ltd., the filings show.It wasn't clear why Credit Suisse dropped off Blued’s IPO, but it did so before the company filed publicly, as opposed to Lizhi, Canaan and EHang. Blued founder Geng Le didn’t immediately respond to an email query during non-business hours. A spokeswoman for Credit Suisse declined to comment.Read more: Gay Dating App Blued Said to Plan U.S. IPO at $1 Billion ValueFounded in 2012 by former policeman Geng, Blued has become an icon for the Chinese LGBTQ community and attracted more than $130 million in venture capital as of March last year. Besides providing dating services to 40 million users, the app also offers live streaming and connects men who want to become parents with overseas surrogates. The services are part of Blued’s larger strategy to diversify its business and generate revenue.Blued has said it’s eyeing an IPO ideally in the U.S., which offers a simpler process and deeper capital markets.

Shrunken deal sizes mean the fee pool also gets smaller, making deals less attractive to banks.The 33 Chinese companies that listed in the U.S. last year have dropped by an average 13% from their IPO price, and only 9 of them have risen since their floats, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.To contact the reporters on this story: Julia Fioretti in Hong Kong at firstname.lastname@example.org;Lulu Yilun Chen in Hong Kong at email@example.comTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Lianting Tu at firstname.lastname@example.org, Edwin Chan, Colum MurphyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
