Metro Retail IPO gets go-ahead

METRO Retail Stores Group, Inc. of the Gaisano family has hurdled all regulatory approvals for its up to P6.17-billion initial public offering (IPO), even as the timetable of the share sale has been slightly pushed back.

The Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) approved on Wednesday the first-time share sale of the Visayan retail giant, according to a notice posted on its Web site yesterday.

The multi-format retailer is selling up to 920 million new shares and another 92 million secondary shares, in case of strong demand, at a maximum price of P6.10 apiece.

Post-IPO, Metro Retail Stores will have a market capitalization of P21 billion. The company will have a public float of 26.71%.

The retailer tweaked the timetable of the IPO, with the final price to be determined on Nov. 5. The offer period will run from Nov. 19 to 23.

The shares will be listed on the Main Board of the PSE on Nov. 24 under the trading symbol “MRSGI.”

Under the original timetable, Metro Retail Stores was eyeing to schedule the offer period from Nov. 2 to 6. Trading of the shares was supposed to commence on Nov. 12.

BPI Capital Corp. and Deutsche Bank A.G., Hong Kong Branch were tapped as joint global coordinators and lead underwriters.

Net proceeds from the primary offering will be used for the expansion of store network, establishment of a consolidated logistics and distribution center, and working capital requirements.

Metro Retail Stores is the third company to join the PSE this year after Crown Asia Chemicals Corp. and SBS Philippines Corp.

The retailer’s IPO kick off a busy fourth quarter in terms of equity offerings as corporates rush to the stock market to take advantage of the window of opportunity presented by bets on a delay in the interest rate hike in the United States.

Aside from Metro Retail Stores, the other IPO hopefuls are -- D.M. Wenceslao & Associates, Inc. (P21.7 billion), DATEM, Inc. (P4.66 billion), Pointwest Technologies Corp. (P2.09 billion), TVI Resource Development Phils., Inc. (P1.51 billion), Philippine Primark Properties, Inc. (P1.2 billion), Italpinas Development Corp. (P242 million); Gweilo Corp. (P95 million); Philstocks Financial, Inc. (P190 million); and Green Power Panay Philippines, Inc. (P290 million).

PSE okays SBS IPO; sales start July 28

The Philippine Stock Exchange has approved the planned R1.16-billion initial public offering of SBS Philippines Corporation, a chemical firm owned by the Sytengco family.

PSE documents show, SBS is planning to offer 420 million common shares, at a maximum offer price of R2.75 apiece, equivalent to 35 percent of the company’s outstanding capital after the IPO.

The final offer price will be set on today (July 24) while the offer period will be from July 28 to August 3, 2015. The target listing date is on August 10, 2015.

Proceeds of the initial public offering (IPO) will be used to fund the expansion of the firm’s current product offering, partially retire a term loan, and fund working capital.

SBS Philippines is considered one of the major chemical traders and distributors in the Philippines, supplying more than 1,800 customers with over 3,000 chemical products sourced from 500 suppliers.

Used in more than 140 different industries, its products are supplied to all areas of industry throughout the Philippines and Southeast Asia.

The Sytengco family currently owns directly and indirectly 93.2 percent of the company. After the planned IPO, the family’s stake in the company is expected to be reduced to 60.6 percent.

The Sytengco family’s chemical business started in 1970 with a two-story office and warehouse building in Sta. Cruz, Manila and only 10 employees.

The company was then involved in selling imported industrial chemicals to small and medium-sized manufacturing companies.
