Indonesian mining IPO oversubscribed
The coal miner offered its stock at Rp 635 (7 cents) per share and for every three shares investors bought, the company also offered two warrants, which entitled investors to buy the company's stock at Rp 700 per share after May 2011 for a period of three years.
BRM expected to raise Rp 3.6 trillion ($400 million) from floating 3.3 billion shares, or 18.16 percent, of the company's total shares on the stock market, and issuance of 2.2 billion of warrants.
"The market sees that the mining industry, such as gold, zinc, copper, tin, ore, diamond and other minerals has good prospects and potential of high growth," said Kenneth Patrick Farrell, president director of BRM.
"Investors are very enthusiastic of BRM's shares," said Vicky Ganda Saputra, executive director of Danatama Makmur, the lead underwriter of the IPO.
Vicky said BRM's offering attracted at least 2,200 individual investors in three days of its offering period from Nov. 30 to Dec. 2.
BRM has appointed Danatama Makmur and Nomura Indonesia as the underwriters for the stock sale. Credit Suisse, JP Morgan and Nomura International will be the international selling agents.
"The fund from this issuance will be used for driving growth of BRM's mining assets more optimally," said Yuanita Rohali, BRM's finance director.
BRM, a spin-off of Bumi Resources, was established to unlock the potential of its parent's non-coal assets.
