JAPFA - Balloting Results

JAPFA announced that its public offer of 16.8m shares was 9.7x subscribed. Given the larger float and quantum and the weak IPO sentiments, i have to say that this is a very strong subscription rate. The overall IPO was about 5x subscribed.

Balloting Results

The above table shows the balloting results. Those who applied for less shares will actually have a higher chance than those who applied for more shares... unbelievable.

It is interesting that they did not declare who the substantial placement holders are... from the grapevine, Asdew and Marubeni are substantial placement subscribers but somehow the Company did not reveal those names.


Instead, they chose to announce that Dymon Asia Multi Strategy Master Fund has subscribed for 500,000 shares. Dymon is run by a NTU alumni called Danny Yong and he is one of the global top 40 highest earning hedge fund manager. He definitely helps fly our Singapore flag in the hedge fund world. ^_^

Mr. IPO's result

In case you still don't know,  Mr. IPO is one who puts money where his mouth is and is a pretty straight forward person. Yes or No. Buy or Sell. 


Anyway, i am not successful in my IPO application, perhaps i should have applied for less shares instead.

Happy IPOing.

Same here. Applied 50000 shares. If I applied 1000 less shares, my odds become much higher. Anyway I was aiming to just get about 9 lots! The irony of life!!

Mr. IPO said...

Haha yah. Perhaps 49 lots would have got you the 9 lots u want.

1: 'Wilson' and Mr IPO are BOTH very rich, stagging $40k and $160k respectively. Is it your own $ or borrowed $. If it is borrowed, I think that is a dangerous move cos U might actually have your order fully filled and see price crash on day one if everyone sells...

2: Mr IPO, can I ask if there is any benefit to the company to have MANY share holders since it seems that those who bid less have higher chance of getting what is ordered and higher % of order filled. More share holders means higher admin costs and more questions to answer during AGM not to mention mouths to feed. Is it some legal requirement and why do these companies like to have many shareholders? 'Charity' to those with less $ or that single digit unit holders are less likely to sell (transaction fee prohibitive)?

Tks if u can answer at least QN 2.

Mr. IPO said...

First of all. When I apply, I am prepared to get 200 lots and I had that experience u described before. Just read thru my blog and you will find out which stock that is :-P

2. There is a requirement to have 1000 shareholders. The company probably trying to ensure they meet that obligation by allocating to smaller shareholders. Give 1 lot will mean that they can meet that requirement and it is tougher to sell just 1 lot. Most will just hold on for the longer term and not sell on the first day

exited at 0.83 s*** too late to get out from downtrend.

got 9000 from 20000 subcribed.

Hi again Mr IPO: Would appreciate if U could explain the logic of ALWAYS having 1000 independent shareholders since any company could well easily bypass the rule by say giving out free shares in odd lots which if JAPFA did, would costs no more than just $800 for 1000 shares given out free (80¢ each) to 1000 unique individuals.

If it is just window dressing to give semblance of share mkt robustness/ transparency (many shareholding participants), than the law is SHAM.

Are there too many loopholes in SGX/IPO rules???!!!

Many tks if U can answer my questionđŸ˜€.
