Doosan Robotics Sets Public Offering Price at Upper Limit, Prepares for KOSPI Market Listing
Doosan Robotics has announced that it has confirmed its public offering price at the upper limit of 26,000 won, signaling its readiness to enter the KOSPI market as planned on the 5th of next month.
The decision on the offering price was made after a thorough demand forecasting process involving both domestic and foreign institutional investors. Over a five-day period from the 11th to the 15th, 1,920 institutions participated in the forecast, resulting in a total of 2,423,795,018 shares being applied for. This led to a competitive ratio of 272 to 1 and an expected public offering amount of approximately KRW 421.2 billion.
Following the listing, Doosan Robotics’ market capitalization is projected to reach around KRW 1.6853 trillion. This IPO is considered the largest deal of the year, with a demand forecast for a participation amount of approximately 63 trillion won.
Mirae Asset Securities and Korea Investment & Securities, the entities overseeing the listing, have revealed that foreign sovereign wealth funds and long-dated funds were particularly active in securing deals for the public offering. Despite the high offering price, which is at the upper end of the band, the decision was made to attract investors with long-term investment goals and provide opportunities for general subscribers to participate.
Addressing concerns about the lower competition rate for institutional investor demand forecasts, officials explained that recent regulations have made it impossible to engage in “imaginary” subscriptions that exceed an investor’s ability to pay. However, they emphasized that Doosan Robotics still achieved the highest level of institutional participation among newly listed companies this year and experienced success in terms of the actual competition rate.
Looking ahead, Doosan Robotics plans to utilize the funds raised through the IPO for strategic business acquisitions and investments. These endeavors aim to bolster the company’s existing product portfolio and facilitate expansion in overseas markets.
