SYDNEY, June 11 Virtus Health Ltd
shares began trading at A$6.07 on Tuesday, a 6.9 percent premium
to the A$5.68 offer price set for the float of the world's first
listed in-vitro fertilisation company.
The shares were at A$6.10 by 0221 GMT.
The stock had been priced at the top end of an indicative
range in the A$338.7 million float amid a market hungry for
quality investments after a moribund period for initial public
offerings (IPOs) in Australia.
The float is also being closely watched as the largest
private equity exit via an IPO since the disastrous $2 billion
listing of department store company Myer Holdings Limited
