SET Executive Vice President Chanitr Charnchainarong said, S 11 Group pcl would  list in the Finance & Securities sector on SET. The company was a motorcycle hire purchase finance company focusing on retail customers for new motorcycles of such popular brands as Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki and Kawasaki, providing services in Bangkok, suburbs and many provinces in Thailand covering Chonburi, Ayudhya, Chachoengsao, Rayong and Chanthaburi, as well as through its network of 139 branches.
S 11 has a paid-up registered capital of THB 613 million, consisting of 533  million existing common shares and 80 million newly issued shares, with a par value of THB 1 each. During February 11-13, the company offered newly-issued shares to the general public via IPO, at THB 5.3 each, for a total of THB 424 million.

S11 Managing Director Surasak Khemthongkham said the company was honored and  really pleased to list on SET. The fund raised would be used as working capital to strengthen company's financial status. S11's executives had more than 20 years of experience with deep knowledge and understanding of the industry. As such, this listing would support the company to expand its market share corresponding to future business growth in the long run.
S11's three major shareholders after the IPO are Samart Chiradamrong group   (30.01 percent), Richard Wee Keng Kwok  group  (15.82 percent) and Sirawat Wanglee group (9.96 percent). The IPO price was set by a booking building process and equivalent to price per earnings ratio (P/E ratio) of 20.38 times.

Vietnam index above 3-mth high, VCB stock hits record

HANOI, Feb 24 - Vietnam's benchmark VN Index  climbed 1.65 percent to end at its highest since Nov. 17 on Tuesday, with lender Vietcombank    outperforming the market on foreign purchase.
Solid overseas inflows into Hanoi-based Vietcombank, Vietnam's top lender by market value, boosted the shares near the daily limit, closing up 6.85 percent at a record high of 39,000 dong ($1.83), Reuters data showed.
Vietcombank is 15 percent owned by Mizuho   Corporate Bank, its strategic partner, while Vietnam caps foreign ownership at 30 percent of a local lender.
VietinBank , the country's biggest partly-private lender by assets, and BIDV  both climbed near their highest in a month, as robust trade in banking shares lifted subdued volume in other sectors.
Despite a seven-month low volume on the first trading day after the Feb. 16-23 Lunar New Year break, more than half of the index constituents advanced, including property firm Vingroup and food producer Masan Group .
Analysts expected the index to further rise, supported by foreign investors' extended purchases.
 Here is a snapshot of the VN Index  at the close

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
