iFAST Corporation Ltd. held IPO event for retail investors on 6 December*

As part of its initial public offering (“IPO”) activities, iFAST Corporation Ltd. (“Company”) held a seminar for investors of its Business-to-Consumer (B2C) division, Fundsupermart.com, and Business-to-Business (B2B) platform, iFAST, on Saturday 6th December. Held at The Star Performing Arts Centre, The Star Gallery, the event drew approximately 250 investors.

Among the questions asked during the event were those touching on:
1. Demand from institutional investors during the Company’s roadshow
2. Experience of investment platforms in the developed markets of UK and Australia
3. Company’s dividend policy

“The Placement saw strong demand from institutional and high net worth investors during our roadshow in Singapore, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and London,” says Mr. Lim Chung Chun. The indications of interest received represented approximately 12 times of the Placement. The Placement is part of the offering of 32,800,000 New Shares (the “Offering”), subject to the Over-allotment Option (defined below):
(i) an international placement of 30,000,000 Shares (the “Placement”); and
(ii) a public offer of 2,800,000 Shares in Singapore (the “Public Offer”).

Separate from the Offering, each of FIL Investment Management (Hong Kong) Limited and OWW Investments III Limited (collectively, the “Cornerstone Investors”) has entered into a cornerstone subscription agreement with the Company (collectively, the “Cornerstone Subscription Agreements”) to subscribe for an aggregate of 19,000,000 New Shares at the Offering Price.

In connection with the Offering, iFAST Corporation has granted DBS Bank Ltd., the stabilising manager, an over-allotment option (“Over-allotment Option”) to subscribe and/or procure subscribers for up to an aggregate of 3,280,000 Additional Shares (not more than 10% of the Offering) at the Offering Price solely to cover the over-allotment of Shares, if any.

As compared to developed markets such as Australia and the UK, the penetration of investment platforms in the Asia ex-Japan region is much lower and has a shorter history. An increasing proportion of funds flowing through investment platforms in Asia ex-Japan is expected to drive the Group’s growth.

Currently, iFAST Corporation Ltd. does not have a fixed dividend policy, though the directors intend to recommend and distribute dividends of 60% of net profit after tax for 4Q2014, and dividends of 60% of net profit after tax for FY2015.

The Public Offer opened at 7.00 pm on 4 December 2014 and closes at 12.00 noon on 9 December 2014. The Company is expected to commence trading on the SGX-ST Mainboard on 11th December 2014 at 9 a.m. The Joint Issue Managers, Bookrunners and Underwriters for the Offering are DBS Bank Ltd. and DMG & Partners Securities Pte Ltd.
