Thai bourse's PP silent period rule effective May 6, 2015

BANGKOK, April 29, 2015 - The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) announces that a one-year silent period rule for a discount share offering in a private placement  (PP) will be effective from May 6, 2015.
Supakit Jirapraditkul, SET's executive vice president, said that the silent period rule has received approval from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and would be effective on May 6 following the agreement of the SET's board of governors on February 17 in approving a one-year silent period rule in share offering to PP at a price lower than 90 percent of its market price. (The market price refers to an average market price dated back 7-15 days before the selling date for PP). In addition, one-fourth of the silent period shares would be allowed for trading six months later, using the same principles of silent period rule as applied for initial public offerings.

SE Asia Stocks -Thai stocks fall after unexpected rate cut; Indonesia extends losses

BANGKOK, April 29 (Reuters) - Thai stocks hit a four-week low on Wednesday amid foreign-led selling after an unexpected interest rate cut, while stocks in Indonesia fell for a sixth successive session as weak corporate earnings dented the broader market sentiment.
Bangkok's SET index    finished down 0.6 percent at 1,522.47, the lowest close since March 31. It fell as much as 1.1 percent at one point after the Bank of Thailand unexpectedly cut its key policy rate for a second straight meeting.
Large caps led losses, with PTT Pcl  down 2.5 percent and Siam Commercial Bank Pcl  lower 1.2 percent.

The market saw a net foreign selling worth 2.9 billion baht ($88.31 million), stock exchange data showed.
The Jakarta composite index   ended down 2.6 percent, taking its loss over six trading days to 6.5 percent. It was the worst performing index in Asia, with a year-to-date loss of 2.3 percent.  I
 Indonesia's biggest cement producer, PT Semen Indonesia Tbk , which reported an 8.5 percent drop in first-quarter net profit, was down 1.9 percent.  
Stocks in Singapore , Malaysia   and the Philippines  tracked Asia lower, while Vietnam remained closed through this week for national holidays.
Asian share markets faded from seven-year peaks, while investors exited crowded positions in the U.S. dollar as the Federal Reserve wraps up a two-day policy meeting.
