If you didn’t get IGB REIT IPO, should you buy the stock when it goes listing then? Probably at a price which is higher than RM 1.25/share?

Anyway, if you want to buy when it goes listing, what reasons would you base your decision on?


Here’s what I think from OSK Research report – 2 things, one – potential in increasing & consistent rental income. Second – valuation. Think it as you were a big shot property investor šŸ™‚

    1. Hi Wan, I wouldn’t generalize like that šŸ™‚ since it’s via balloting system. So I guess, fair chance for the public šŸ™‚
      There are people in lowyat forum who do get it, and I’m pretty sure they are not millionaires šŸ™‚

  1. Hi CF, thanks for making this. I got one question, how about buying Kris Assets at RM9.17 now? Is that way to overprice?

    1. OSK Research has this to say actually: KrisAssets vs IGB REIT

      Some investors may wonder if buying KrisAssets shares (KRIS MK, Non-Rated) may provide a cheaper alternative to gain access to IGB REIT’s IPO. Recall that KrisAssets will undertake a distribution exercise of 2,730m IGB REIT units to IGB Corp and other shareholders after the listing. IGB Corp will see its shareholdings rise to 51% and the remainding 49% will be allocated for public and institutional shareholders. Thereafter KrisAssets will be voluntarily wound-up and de-listed by Bursa Securities. Based on the calculations extracted from KrisAssets’ circular to shareholders, for every one share of KrisAssets owned by a shareholder, he/she would be entitled to 5.24x IGB REIT units and an estimated additional RM2.43 cash payment. Assuming KrisAssetsā€™ closing price of RM9.15 as at 30 Aug 2012 and that the proposed cash payment is unchanged, the IGB REIT ‘pricing’ arrived at is RM1.28. Hence, it is cheaper to subscribe to the IGB REIT unit for a retail price of RM1.25. However, we think the run-up of KrisAssetsā€™ share price could be attributed to a premium, as this is a more guaranteed method to obtain IGB REIT’s shares as compared to an IPO subscription, albeit the time delay for the entitlement to materialize.

      1. hi LCF…is it comfirm can get it 5.24unit igb reit + cash payment if i hold 1 shares of kassets? how to calculate 5.24 ? is it based on share capital of kassets?
