Thai alternative bourse welcomes Planet Communications Asia

BANGKOK, June 20, 2014 - The Market for Alternative Investment (mai), under The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) group, will list Planet Communications Asia pcl, a telecommunications and broadcast & digital TV technology service provider, on mai and start trading on June 23, under the ticker symbol "PCA."
Prapan Charoenprawatt, mai President, said that PCA, providing services in  design, installation and distribution of world leading products covering
wireless network, wire network, multimedia and broadcast & digital TV, also offered its owned brand, "Planetcom", for network communications solutions.
PCA has a paid-up registered capital of THB 250 million, consisting of 175  million existing common shares and 75 million newly-issued shares, with a par value of THB 1.00 each. It sold 70 million new shares to the general public via initial public offerings (IPOs) and five million shares to the company's
directors and employees at THB 2.80 during June 16-18 for a total THB 210 million. Finansia Syrus Securities pcl is the financial advisor and lead underwriter.
PCA President and CEO Prapat Rathlertkarn said that the company was honored and  delighted to list on mai. This would be a significant step to enhance image, goodwill, financial strength and effectiveness for the company. The fundraising would be used for working capital and business expansions to accommodate the company's future growth.
PCA's three major shareholders after the IPO are Rathlertkarn's group (35.85  percent), Mr. Trevor John Thompson's family (31.58 percent) and Mrs. Ratana Suwan (2.08 percent). The IPO price had a price/earnings ratio (P/E) of 9.89 times, calculated by using 12-month earnings (April 2013 - March 2014), divided by the number of fully-diluted shares, equivalent to earnings per share of THB 0.28. Its dividend policy is to pay no less than 50 percent of net profits after  taxes and reserves.

Vietnam index at 2-wk low as funds restructure portfolios

Vietnam's benchmark VN Index   fell 1.16 percent on Friday to close at 560.78 points, its lowest level since June 6, as exchange-traded funds restructure their second-quarter portfolios, analysts said.     
Food producer Masan Group   tumbled 6.35 percent to 88,500 dong ($4.17) per share, its lowest close since May 8, while property firm Vingroup   lost 1.57 percent.
Masan and Vingroup were among those that fell on selling by the Market Vectors Vietnam exchange-traded fund   in the last trading day of its second-quarter portfolio restructuring, analysts said.
VNM ETF, however, bought a large number of shares from Ho Chi Minh City-based lender Sacombank , which boosted the stock by 2.38 percent, with its strongest volume in five years at 23.7 million shares, Reuters data showed.
Another ETF, db x-trackers FTSE Vietnam , was also on its last day of restructuring on Friday, keeping volume on the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange at a solid level of 123 million shares against the five-day average level of 109 million, according to Reuters data.
 "But losses today are not fundamental and mostly on selling by ETF, so the index is likely to increase in the next sessions on bargain hunting," said Hoang Huy, analyst at ACB Securities.
