BANGKOK, May 28, 2013 – The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) welcomes PTG Energy pcl, operator of retail and wholesale fuel businesses through its PT petrol stations, to its main board and will start trading on May 30 under the ticker symbol “PTG”, after it raised THB 6.51 billion (approx. USD 224.5 million) via an initial public offering

SET Executive Vice President Chanitr Charnchainarong said: “PTG will list and trade in the Resources industry group under the Energy & Utilities sector. It retails and wholesales fuel through its 574 petrol stations nationwide.”

PTG and its subsidiaries operate via 397 company-owned/company-operated (COCO) “PT” petrol stations and 177 dealer-owned/dealer-operated (DODO) stations.  It is also involved in related businesses to facilitate its clientele, including selling fuel wholesale for industrial operators, engages in logistics and fuel transportation, and operates convenience stores within PT petrol stations.

PTG has a paid-up registered capital of THB 1.67 billion (approx. USD 57.58 million), consisting of 1,250 million existing common shares and 420 million newly-issued shares, with a par value of THB 1.00 each. The company offered 386.60 million shares to the general public via IPO and 33.40 million shares to its executives and employees on May 17 and May 20 - 22, at THB 3.90 per share, for a total of THB 1.63 billion (approx. USD 56.48 million). Sage Capital Limited is its financial advisor and Capital Nomura Securities pcl is its underwriter.
PTG Chief Executive Officer Pitak Ratchakitprakarn said: “The funds raised will enable expansion of petrol stations, focusing on COCO and ‘full-service’ stations, where Pan Thai coffee shops and MaxMart convenience stores can be found.  Moreover, PTG will invest in buying more oil trucks to boost its transportation efficiency and better manage its transportation cost.”
