KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 12): Infomina Bhd said it inked an underwriting agreement with M&A Securities Sdn Bhd on Wednesday (Oct 12), in conjunction with its initial public offering (IPO) on the ACE Market of Bursa Malaysia.

In a statement, Infomina said the IPO comprises a public issue of 81.17 million new shares and an offer for sale of another 81.17 million existing shares.

Of the 81.17 million under the public issue, 30.06 million shares will be made available to the Malaysian public, 6.01 million shares to the group’s eligible directors and employees, and the remaining 45.09 million shares to Bumiputera investors approved by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI).

Meanwhile, 30.06 million of the shares offered for sale will be made available via private placement to Bumiputera investors approved by MITI, while the remaining 51.11 million shares will be offered to selected investors.
