TOKYO, April 7 Mon Apr 7, 2014 3:10am EDT

TOKYO, April 7 (Reuters) - Japan's Seibu Holdings has delayed an announcement on its initial public offering price guidance by two days - until Wednesday - as it needs further time to gauge demand before setting the price range, a source familiar with the matter said on Monday.

Seibu, a railway and property conglomerate, had initially said in a filing that it would issue the price range on Monday.

Sources had said earlier that a tentative price was set at 2,300 yen per share, valuing the IPO at 186 billion yen ($1.80 billion) and the entire company at 787 billion yen. ($1 = 103.5750 Japanese Yen) (Reporting by Emi Emoto; Writing by Dominic Lau; Editing by Edmund Klamann)
