international manufacturers in a variety of industries, such as the tire,

footwear and elastic yarns. TEGH also owns the business that produces and sells

crude palm oil to be used as raw materials in continuous industries such as

cooking oil, food ingredients, butter, and non-dairy creamer. Moreover, TEGH has

the business relating to renewable energy and management of organic residues

from the production process to produce renewable energy, to create a green

economy that can mitigate impact on the environment while generating stable

income for the group of companies.

 

TEGH has a registered paid-up capital of THB 1.08 billion, consisting of 810

million existing common shares and 270 million newly issued shares, with a par

value of THB 1 each. It offered the newly issued shares to the general public

during September 21-23 at THB 4.80 each, for a total of THB 1.30 billion. The

IPO price was equivalent to the price-to-earnings ratio (P/E ratio) of 7.7

times. The earnings per share (fully diluted EPS) is equal to THB 0.60, which

advisors and lead underwriters.

 

TEGH Chief Executive Officer Chalerm Koknutaporn said that the company has been

in the business for over 30 years and managed by experienced executives with

long-time expertise in the business. Currently, the company is one of the

leaders in the production and distribution of natural rubber, a major producer

and distributor of crude palm oil and a large biogas energy manufacturer in the

Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) area. The listing on SET will strengthen the

company’s competitive edge and financial position, both in terms of lower

financial costs and higher confidence among partners. Proceeds from the

fundraising will be used to enhance the company’s capabilities as an investment

to expand production capacity, improve operational efficiency, repay loans to

financial institutions, and as working capital.
