Local paint and coating manufacturer TOA Paint (Thailand) Plc has applied to the Securities and Exchange Commission to offer up to 507.6 million shares, equivalent to 25.02 per cent of its registered capital, in its initial public offering (IPO).

TOA’s registered capital stands at 2 billion baht, comprising 2 billion shares with a par value of one baht each. Of this, it will sell 254 million primary shares and up to 253.6 million secondary shares that are currently held by Wybrant Holding Limited.

The IPO proceeds will be used to expand TOA’s business domestically and internationally, and to meet working capital requirements, the company’s chief executive Jatuphat Tangkaravakoon told the media.

“We have a vision to be a leader in the paint and coating market in Asean, which will be achieved by offering market-leading products and services. We also believe that we will benefit from the Asean Economic Community, which is expected to have high market growth,” he said.

It has appointed Kasikorn Securities and Bualuang Securities as its financial advisers for the IPO.

Pichet Sithi-Amnuai, president of Bualuang Securities, said that TOA is likely to launch the IPO and list on the Stock Exchange of Thailand by the end of this year.

Currently, the firm has eight production plants in six countries, of which three are in Thailand. To cope with the demand in the region, it is constructing another three in Indonesia, Cambodia and Myanmar.
