News: Powerwell to raise RM21.85m from ACE Market IPO
POWERWELL Holdings Bhd is seeking to raise RM21.85 million from its IPO at 25 sen per share, as the company looks to strengthen and expand its electricity distribution product manufacturing business.
“We intend to develop and commercialise our Powerwell-branded products and obtain third-party International Electrotechnical Commission standards-compliant certifications for a wider range of our products.
“These efforts are meant to increase our competitiveness in the industry by growing our brand, market presence and market share,” Powerwell MD Jason Tham said at the launch of the IPO prospectus in Kuala Lumpur (KL) yesterday.
The group also intends to grow its replacement market business as it sees growth opportunities in this area, with existing buildings due for refurbishments or upgrades to prolong their lifespan.
“We have also appointed distributors regionally. We intend to increase marketing efforts locally and overseas to strengthen our brand awareness and brand loyalty,” Tham added.
Despite the tough market sentiment expected this year, the company is confident the listing will be a success, driven by over 25 years of experience in the electricity distribution industry and a proven track record domestically and overseas its ED Ricky Lee said.
The group has supplied low voltage switchboards and medium voltage switchgears to domestic projects, including both public and private initiatives across different industry segments, such as infrastructure and oil and gas.
Lee also expects demand for its products to be boosted by the revival of Malaysia’s construction sector, as well as Indonesia’s intention to relocate its administrative capital to East Kalimantan, Borneo.
“Other than that, the IPO will also enable us to gain access to the capital market for future expansion and growth, besides enhancing our company profile and reputation, attracting new skilled employees and expanding our customer base,” he said.
To support its manufacturing activities, Powerwell currently operates from manufacturing facilities in Kota Kemuning, Shah Alam, and Binh Duong, Vietnam.
The company has supplied products to Vietnam, Bangladesh, Indonesia, the Philippines, Cambodia and Singapore, among others.
Powerwell is expected to debut on the ACE Market of Bursa Malaysia on Jan 22, 2020. The group is offering 145.46 million Powerwell shares at 25 sen per share.
Upon listing, the company will have a market capitalisation of RM145.14 million based on its enlarged share capital of 580.55 million shares.
The IPO entails a public issue of 87.4 million new shares in Powerwell and an offering for sale of 58.06 million existing shares by the offerors.
Of the RM21.85 million to be raised from the exercise, RM10.27 million has been earmarked for capital expenditure, involving the purchase of machinery and equipment and the enhancement of Powerwell’s Enterprise Resource Planning systems and hardware.
The company also aims to improve manufacturing processing efficiency and boost production capacity.
Some RM3.87 million will be allocated for certification expenditure for a range of Powerwell-branded products, RM3.62 million for working capital purposes and the remaining RM4.1 million for estimated listing expenses.
Mercury Securities Sdn Bhd is the sole underwriter, principal advisor, sponsor and sole placement agent for the listing exercise, while BDO Capital Consultants Sdn Bhd is the financial advisor.
