Thai bourse to list ALT Telecom on July 4

BANGKOK, June 30, 2016 - The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) will list ALT Telecom pcl, a one-stop telecommunication product and service provider, on July 4, under the ticker symbol "ALT". The company has a market capitalization at its  initial public offering (IPO) of THB 4.7 billion (approx. USD 132.4 million).

SET Senior Executive Vice President Santi Kiranand said ALT would list and start trading on SET's Technology industry group, Information & Communication Technology sector. The company was a one-stop telecommunication operator with three main business functions of producing, installing and repairing telecom base stations such as telecom turnkey site solutions, radio access network and outside plant, as well as distributing telecommunication devices and offering telecommunication infrastructure leasing.

ALT has a paid-up registered capital of THB 500 million, consisting of 750 million existing common shares and 250 million newly-issued shares with a par value of THB 0.50 each. During June 24 and 27-28, 2016, it offered newly-issued shares to the general public via IPO at THB 4.70 each, for a total of THB 1.18 billion, Finnex Advisory Co., Ltd. is its financial advisor, while Finansia Syrus Securities pcl is its underwriter.

ALT Managing Director Preeyaporn Tangpaosak said this listing would strengthen the ALT's financial capabilities and support ALT's business plan to increase recurring income proportion from rental income of infrastructure, for the company stability and sustainable growth. The fund raised would be used to invest in fiber-optic network of the rail poles for rental. This network would connect to the company's network to serve customers in all regions of Thailand, responding to demand of network operator and industry growth.

ALT's three major shareholders after the IPO are Preeyaporn Tangpaosak (74.40 percent), Templetion Investment Management (Singapore) PTE LTD (0.70 percent), and Tawan Soonthonyankit (0.60 percent). The IPO price, set by a book building process, was equivalent to price-to-earnings ratio (P/E ratio) of 23.50 times, calculated by using the company's net profit in the past four quarters (Q2/2015-Q1/2016) divided by fully diluted shares, representing earnings per share of THB 0.20. ALT's dividend policy is to pay no less than 40 percent of net profits after taxes and reserves.

SE Asia Stocks-Close higher as post-Brexit rebound continues

Most Southeast Asian markets closed higher on Thursday, tracking regional peers, as markets shrugged off the impact of Britain's stunning vote to leave the European Union.
MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan  .MIAPJ0000PUS  was up 1.5 percent at 0900 GMT, pulling further
away from a one-month low hit on Friday. The index has dropped about 0.8 percent in the April-June quarter. 
Singapore shares  .STI  rose 1.7 percent, helped by consumer service providers. The index posted its biggest intra-day
percentage gain since Oct. 2011.
Singapore's total bank lending in May rose from April on stronger demand for manufacturing loans, central bank data
showed on Thursday.  
United Overseas Bank  UOBH.SI  gained 2.6 percent after the city-state's number 3 lender suspended its loans programme for
London properties in the wake of Brexit.  
The Singapore index has shed 1.5 percent during the first half of the year.
Vietnam's benchmark index  .VNI  hit a 11-month high during the session, led by healthcare shares, before closing up 0.3
percent. Dhg Pharmaceutical Joint-Stock Co  DHG.HM  gained 4.6 percent.      
Sentiment improved following rebounds across global markets and as funds boosted prices of Vietnamese shares to improve
their end-June portfolio performance, analysts said.
Analysts expect stocks to retreat in the next few sessions as the index approaches a historically strong resistance level of 640 points and on a lack of supportive news.
The Philippine index  .PSI  erased early gains of as much as 2.3 percent to end marginally lower.
Philippine stocks were up earlier in the session on Rodrigo Duterte's inauguration as president. However, when the market
approached 8,000 points, "there was strong resistance.

Eventually, the market corrected in the afternoon," said an analyst with SB Equities.
"It went up too high, too fast."
However, the index has gained 7.4 percent in the April-June quarter.

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.

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
