PTT Oil and Retail Business Public Co., which is selling up to 3 billion shares, has already secured commitments from foreign and domestic investors to subscribe to a portion of the shares ahead of the IPO.
Singapore sovereign wealth fund GIC Pte. and JPMorgan Asset Management Krungthai Asset Management Public Co. are among the 28 cornerstone investors who have agreed to buy the shares of the retailer, the term sheet shows.
Shares are expected to be priced on Feb. 2 and the stock listed on the Thailand stock exchange from Feb. 11.
