SINGAPORE Aug 6 Samudra Energy, which owns oil
and gas interests in Indonesia, has deferred its up to $276
million initial public offering in Singapore following poor
response from investors, IFR reported on Wednesday.
Although the books were covered, some investors started
pulling out of orders toward the end of the bookbuilding period,
IFR said, quoting a source explaining the deferment.
Samudra, which is part of private equity firm Northstar
Group, was going to sell about 131 million shares, excluding a
greenshoe option, at an indicative price range of S$1.89 to
S$2.11 a share, according to a term sheet seen by Reuters
Company officials could not be reached for comment.
Credit Suisse and Nomura acted as the
joint global coordinators and bookrunners with CIMB.
