 Thai bourse welcomes TLHPF property fund on November 27

BANGKOK, November 26, 2015 - The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) will list Thailand Hospitality Property Fund, a property fund invested in land and building of PP Holiday Inn Resort, located on PP Island, Krabi, in the southern province of Thailand, with market capitalization of THB 1.72 billion (approx. USD 47.8 million), on its main board on November 27, under the ticker symbol "TLHPF”.

SET Executive Vice President Santi Kiranand said that TLHPF would be listed and start trading on SET in the Property Fund & REIT sector of the Property & Construction industry on November 27, being the last property fund to be listed on SET following the SEC’s regulation to substitute “property fund” in Thailand with Real Estate Investment Trust.

TLHPF sold 172 million units to the general public at THB 10 per unit, a total worth 1.72 billion, during October 9-27, having One Asset Management Limited as fund manager.

TLHPF has invested in freehold rights of land and building of PP Holiday Inn Resort in Krabi, consisting of 85 villas (128 rooms), utilities including related facilities and services. PP Holiday Inn Resort Krabi, under the management of Holiday Inns (Thailand) Ltd., a subsidiary of the InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), has an average occupancy of more than 80 percent per year.

One Asset Management Chief Executive Officer Win Udomrachtavanich said that TLHPF’s investment in PP Holiday Inn Resort Krabi, a popular four-star hotel, could generate stable income from its long-term rental contracts by its clients, with a fixed rental rate at THB 136 million in the first three years, with renewable 3-year contract for 4 times , totaling 15 years. The rental fees would be raised every three years, and the asset value was expected to grow in the future, as such providing good returns for the trust unit holders in the long run.

TLHPF is a specific closed-ended fund with no maturity. Its dividend policy is to pay at least once a year, at no less than 90 percent of adjusted net profit of its financial year. The fund's top three unit holders after its IPOs are Phi Phi Holiday Co., Ltd. (25.00 percent), Social Security Office (25.00 percent) and Muang Thai Life Assurance pcl for Takaful PSA 1 (8.72 percent).


 Thai bourse to hold first charity mini marathon “SET Bull Run” in Feb 2016

BANGKOK, November 26, 2015 - The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) has joined hands with both private and public entities in the financial market to organize the unique "SET Bull Run" charity mini marathon, the first time ever for the Thai capital market, initiating new running route on Ratchadapisek Road in the rim of downtown Bangkok, on Sunday February 28, 2016, from 5-9 a.m.

This marathon will be organized under the concept “Power of the Bull”, with an aim to enhance healthy lifestyle of the Thai people. All fundraising from application fee (without expense deduction) will be donated to the Thai Red Cross Society. Participation from the public is welcome and can apply now via

SET President Kesara Manchusree said, "This collaboration is a flagship event by SET and other capital market organizations namely the Federation of Thai Capital Market Organizations (FETCO), Thai Listed Companies Association (TLCA), Association of Thai Securities Companies (ASCO), the Association of Investment Management Companies (AIMC), and mai Listed Companies Association (maiA). The marathon starts and finishes at SET’s new building on Ratchadapisek road, near The Embassy of the People's Republic of China.”

“The “Power of the Bull’ concept of this mini marathon represents the “bull” market condition in the upward trend, which could be compared to the power of the runners who are enthusiastic to achieve their set targets. The ‘SET Bull Run’ aims to support the society and promote healthy lifestyle of the Thai people, expecting to draw a large number of participants from capital market professionals, investors, professional and amateur runners, and the general public,” added Kesara.

FETCO Chairwoman and AIMC Chairwoman Vorawan Tarapoom said, “The ‘SET Bull Run’ event is a phenomenal  as it will truly reflect the synergy and unity of professionals in the Thai capital market and stakeholders, while embracing general public’s engagement to the Thai capital market, an engine in driving the Thai economy  for over 40 years.”

ASCO Chairwoman Pattera Dilokrungthirapop said, “SET and securities companies have frequently organized social-related and sports competitions, such as soccer, badminton, table tennis and others, in order to strengthen relationship and promote health among employees and the public as a whole. This time, Thai securities companies express the spirit of unity again in the “SET Bull Run,” and I would like to invite investors to join this charity sport event.”

TLCA Chairman Surong Bulakul said, “From past to present, as always, the Thai capital market alliances have joined forces to strengthen our social responsibility commitment such as the annual anti-corruption campaign, the joint flood victims aid project, and many more. The ‘SET Bull Run’ event is another dynamic joint-project to support and benefit the society in upgrading the quality of life of the Thai people via running.”’

maiA Secretary General Charnkrij Dejvitak said, “The ‘SET Bull Run’ will be an important event that can generate participation of executives, professionals and employees of mai-listed firms, expressing the power, synergy and spirit of the Thai capital market where we belong to.”

The event is unique as it will be the unprecedented mini-marathon with running route on Ratchadapisek road passing inside two tunnels. All runners will receive limited edition “Newton” brand t-shirt, in recognition of their travel. Timings for runners will be recorded using a chip timing system and runners will receive their photos as special gifts. In addition, the “SET Bull Run” will be the first marathon in Thailand to offer an accident insurance coverage for all runners, free-of-charge.
