Parkson Holdings: Prices set for IPO, but size smaller
Parkson Holdings Bhd has priced its regional retail arm Parkson Retail Asia Pte Ltd (PRA) at an IPO price of S$0.94 (RM2.33) per share. The IPO valued the whole of PRA at S$636.7m, which is a decent 18.2 times its net profit S$35m for FY11 ended June 30. However, the size of the IPO that will comprise the issuance of 80m new shares is smaller than previously anticipated. In a statement to Bursa Malaysia, Parkson Holdings said PRA’s listing on the Singapore Exchange (SGX) will involve an offering of 147m shares – 80m new shares to be issued by PRA and 67m existing shares by the vendors Parkson Holdings and its Indonesian partner PT Mitra Samaya.
