HONG KONG (Jan 29) -- Chinese smart wearable technology company Huami Corp. said it expects to raise up to $120 million in gross proceeds from an initial public offering in the U.S.
The company is offering 10 million American Depositary Shares in an indicative price range of $10 to $12 apiece, according to a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Huami makes Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi's Mi smart wrist band, and also designs and manufactures smart wearable products under the brand Amazfit.

The company expects to use proceeds from the offering for research and development, selling and marketing and general working capital, including potential acquisitions.
Huami has applied for its ADSs to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol HMI.
