SET Executive Vice President Chanitr Charnchainarong said that PACE is the second Thai company listing on SET under the market capitalization rule, which allows a firm worth more than THB 5 billion to list its common stocks. PACE is building the MahaNakhon project on Narathiwas Road, Bangkok, which is a mixed-use project, comprised of the five-star hotel “Bangkok Edition,” luxury residence “The Ritz-Carlton Residences Bangkok,” and shopping centers “Retail CUBE” and “Retail Hill.”

PACE has a paid-up registered capital of THB 2.05 billion, consisting of 1,454.3 million existing shares and 600 million newly-issued ones, with a par value of THB 1.00 each. PACE offered its new share issue via an IPO on July 29-31 at THB 3.50 per share, for a total of THB 2.1 billion. Asia Plus Securities pcl is its underwriter.

Sorapoj Techakraisri, CEO of PACE, said; "Fundraising proceeds will be used to buy land for a property development in Hua Hin and a condominium project on Luang Suan road, repay debt; purchase shares and transfer debt of its subsidiaries PACE Real Estate Co., Ltd., PACE Project One Co., Ltd., PACE Project Two Co., Ltd., and PACE Project Three Co.,Ltd, , which are jointly controlled by IBC Thailand, and as working capital.

PACE's three major shareholders after the IPO are the Techakraisri group (55.2%), Apichart Kasemkulsiri (4.4%), and Siriorn Isarangkul Na Ayudhya (3.9%). The IPO price was set at THB 3.50 per share, with a price to earnings ratio of 15.8 times, calculated using estimated average earnings per share of MahaNakhon project from 2013-2016 which is 0.22 baht.
