Thai alternative bourse to list NETBAY on June 16

BANGKOK, June 15, 2016 - Market for Alternative Investment (mai) will list Netbay pcl, an e-business service provider, on June 16, under the ticker symbol "NETBAY". The company has a market capitalization at its initial public offering  (IPO) of THB 800 million (approximately USD 22.54 million).

mai President Prapan Charoenprawatt said that NETBAY would list and start trading on mai in the Technology industry group on June 16, 2016. Serving various groups of customers from business-to-government (B2G), business-to-business (B2B) and business-to-customer (B2C), NETBAY, a software developer for e-business transactions, provided clients with the software called "Software as a Service"(SaaS). The company's e-business services covered 1) e-logistics trading, engaging e-customs services; 2) e-business services, providing reports of customers' transactions with financial institutes and customer due diligence services; 3) special projects, designing and developing an information system to satisfy client's specific requirements.

NETBAY has a paid-up registered capital of THB 200 million, consisting of 160 million existing common shares and 40 million newly issued shares, with a par value of THB 1.00 each. During June 8-10, it offered newly issued shares to the general public via IPO, at THB 4.00 each, for a total of THB 160 million.

Maybank Kim Eng Securities (Thailand) pcl is the financial advisor and underwriter.

NETBAY Chief Executive Officer Pichit Viwatrujirapong said under the "Better, Faster and Cheaper" concept, NETBAY focused on innovation, technology and business platform development which were keys to logistics excellence, while being customer centric. Thus, customers could acquire information technology services at an affordable price and could accelerate service speed by online transaction. The fund raised would be used for working capital. This listing would build up customer confidence and strengthen capital base to serve business  growth in the future.

NETBAY's three major shareholders after the IPO are Pichit Viwatrujirapong (60.00 percent), Internet Thailand pcl (20.00 percent) and Rasita Jaraphichitchai (0.50 percent). The IPO price was equivalent to price-to-earnings ratio (P/E ratio) of 11.76 times calculated by using the company's net profit in the past four quarters (April 1, 2015-March 31, 2016) at THB 67.82 million, divided by fully diluted shares, representing earnings per share of THB 0.34. NETBAY's dividend policy is to pay no less than 40 percent of  net profits after taxes and reserves.

SE Asia Stocks-Cautious on Brexit fears

Southeast Asian stock markets were cautious on Thursday after the U.S. Federal Reserve refrained
from raising interest rates and the Bank of Japan kept monetary policy steady, while Brexit fears continued to weigh.
The U.S. central bank kept policy steady as widely expected and lowered its economic projections but signalled that it still
planned to raise rates twice in 2016.  
A small majority of Wall Street's top banks expects the Fed to raise interest rates no more than once this year, a Reuters
poll showed on Wednesday.  
The Bank of Japan kept monetary policy steady and stuck to its optimistic view of the economy on Thursday, even as renewed
yen rises and slumping stock prices threaten to hurt business sentiment and derail a fragile economic recovery.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS  fell 0.8 percent at 0430 GMT, after briefly
rising earlier in the day.
Worries that Britain, the world's fifth-largest economy, could quit the European Union after a June 23 referendum added
to the volatility.
"It's all about the Brexit now. Markets are reacting to the Brexit risks," said a Singapore-based analyst who did not want
to be identified.
The Philippine index  .PSI  rose nearly 1 percent, led by shares of telecom service providers such as Philippine Long
Distance Telephone Co  TEL.PS , which rose 1.8 percent.
"It might be a case of rotation of buying, probably lightening up on some countries and moving to the Philippines
because of our better fundamentals at the moment," said Jose Vistan, an analyst with Manila-based AB Capital Securities.
The Fed's decision has helped the appetite in a way for risk assets, Vistan said.
"If funds are going to risk assets, they want to go into countries that have strong fundamentals," Vistan added.
Singapore  .STI  stocks were down 0.8 percent, with oil and gas shares dragging the index down.
Oil prices fell on Thursday, heading for a sixth session of declines, following a lower-than-expected draw on U.S.
stockpiles and concerns over Britain's exit from the European Union.  
Shares of Keppel Corp Ltd  KPLM.SI  fell 1.7 percent, while Sembcorp Industries Ltd  SCIL.SI  was down 2.5 percent.
Vietnam rose 0.3 percent, led by utilities and healthcare stocks. PetroVietnam Power Nhon Trach 2 JSC  NT2.HM  rose 6.1

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
