Malaysia's Icon Offshore plans estimated $150 million IPO
KUALA LUMPUR, March 27
KUALA LUMPUR, March 27 (Reuters) - Malaysia's Icon Offshore Bhd, whose ships offer support services to oil platforms, aims to list on the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange by selling shares bankers estimate to be worth $150 million.
The offshore support vessel company plans to add to its fleet of 32 ships and repay debt using funds raised through the initial public offering (IPO), which bankers expect to take place in the second quarter of this year.
Icon plans sell up to 510.6 million shares - 324.7 million to domestic and foreign institutional investors, 135.3 million to indigenous "Bumiputra" institutional investors, and 50.6 million to individual investors, showed a draft prospectus filed late on Wednesday.
Bumiputra are ethnic Malays and other indigenous people in Malaysia who receive preferential treatment in business, housing and education under a decades-old government policy.
