SET to list "Triple i Logistics" on September 1 BANGKOK, August 31, 2017 - The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) will list Triple
i Logistics pcl, an integrated logistics service provider, on September 1, under the ticker symbol "III". The company has a market capitalization at its
initial public offering (IPO) of THB 2.9 billion (approx. USD 85.3 million).

SET Senior Executive Vice President Santi Kiranand said that III would list on SET in the Services industry, Transportation & Logistics sector. III, a leading
one-stop logistics service provider with more than 25 years of experiences and professional staff, provides four categories of services, which are air freight;
sea freight and inland transport; logistics management; and chemical & specialty logistics services, serving both domestic and international customers.
III has a paid-up registered capital of THB 302.25 million, consisting of 440 million existing common shares and 164.5 million newly issued shares, with a par
value of THB 0.50 each. It offered 160 million newly issued shares to general public during August 23-25, and 4.5 million newly issued shares to employees, at
THB 4.80 each, for a total of THB 789.60 million. CIMB Thai Bank pcl is the financial advisor, while CIMB Securities (Thailand) Co. Ltd. is its underwriter.

III Chief Executive Officer Tipp Dalal said that the company foresees opportunities for our business growth, based on many positive factors especially
the government's stimulus for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) including the megaproject investment plan, which will lead to the growth of many
industries, as well as the economic growth in ASEAN. We plan to invest in various projects such as Donmueng airport cargo terminal project; warehouse and
domestic container transport services expansion; logistics and inventory management to cater to the growth of e-commerce; and warehouse and truck fleet
expansion for specialty products, among others. The fund raised would be used to finance the business expansion projects, strengthen III's business and generate
 substantial returns for all shareholders.

III's three major shareholders after the IPO are Tipp Dalal (23.39 percent), Viraj Nobnomtham (17.86 percent) and Teeranit Isarangkul Na Ayudhaya (10.04
percent). The IPO price was set by a book building process, equivalent to price-to-earnings ratio (P/E ratio) of 22.66 times calculated by using the
company's net profit in the past four quarters divided by fully diluted shares, representing earnings per share of THB 0.21. III's dividend policy is to pay no
less than 40 percent of net profit after reserves under the condition that such dividend payment is related to the investment plan, other necessities and
suitabilities in the future.

SE Asia Stocks-Upbeat China, U.S. data aid sentiment

Southeast Asian stock markets, except Indonesia, edged up on Thursday, as a surprise increase in
Chinese factory output and upwardly revised U.S. economic growth provided some cheer, although concerns over North Korea
Growth in China's manufacturing sector unexpectedly accelerated in August, defying expectations that the world's
second-largest economy will start to cool as borrowing costs rise and regulators clamp down on riskier lending.  

The U.S. economy grew faster than initially thought in the second quarter, notching its quickest pace in more than two
years, while private-sector employment logged its biggest monthly increase in five months, driving expectations that
non-farm payrolls numbers for August, due at 1300 GMT, would be solid.  

Tensions between the United States and North Korea simmered in the background after U.S. President Donald Trump dismissed
any diplomatic negotiations via a tweet, a day after the reclusive state fired a ballistic missile that flew over Japan.
In Southeast Asia, the Singapore index  .STI  closed at its highest in more than two weeks, supported by financial shares.
Index heavyweight United Overseas Bank  UOBH.SI  climbed 1.5 percent, while Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation  OCBC.SI  
ended the day 1.7 percent higher.
For the month, Singapore shares fell 1.4 percent, snapping seven straight monthly gains to log its worst month in nine.
Vietnam  .VNI  finished 0.5 percent higher, helped by financials, with Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Investment and
Development of Vietnam  BID.HM  the biggest index gainer.
The index fell 0.1 percent on month, snapping three straight months of gains.
Indonesia  .JKSE  dropped slightly, closing lower for a fourth straight session, but posted a monthly gain of 0.3
percent, extending gains to a seventh straight month.
Private hospital operator Mitra Keluarga Karyasehat Tbk  MIKA.JK  fell more than 8 percent, dragging down the index.
"Indonesia is closed tomorrow; there are some data points that will be released tomorrow such as the labour report in the
United States, so I think there is little bit of caution ahead of that," said Taye Shim, head of research at Jakarta-based
Mirae Asset Sekuritas.
Thailand  .SETI  closed up 0.2 percent on broad-based gains.
Malaysia  .KLSE  was closed for a national holiday.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
