KUALA LUMPUR — Home-improvement store operator Mr DIY Group of Malaysia opened its initial public offering for bids, aiming to raise 1.5 billion ringgit ($360.6 million) in what would be the country’s largest stock market listing since 2017.
The company on Tuesday unveiled its prospectus, an important step to listing on the main board of Kuala Lumpur’s stock exchange, known as Bursa Malaysia. Mr DIY’s first two attempts at listing — late last year and the first half of 2020 — were shelved amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The offering would give the company a market capitalization of 10 billion ringgit post-IPO, CEO Adrian Ong said at an online news conference after the prospectus was released.
Mr DIY is targeting a retail price of 1.60 ringgit a share, with the institutional offering consisting of 779.95 million shares and 161.53 million shares allocated for the retail offering.
