Not long before the auction, the bearish trend of the listed market caused some analysts to concern that the price could not be high in this auction. However, the news that the buying demand was 3 times higher than the total shares offered made the atmosphere of the auction much more lively.
Many investors had trouble in choosing their bidding price and the average winning bid reached VND 43,974/share, 33.25% greater than the starting price.
This can be considered a success for Interfood in particular and for foreign direct investment (FDI) enterprises in general. The attention investors paid to these enterprises proved that the equitization of these enterprises proves effective.
Interfood might probably be the second FDI enterprise to list on the HCMC bourse in this July after Taya Electric Wire and Cable Joint Stock Company (Taya); while the time of listing on the Ha Noi bourse for Tung Kuang Industrial Joint-stock Company – another FDI enterprise – can be counted down in days.
Moreover, many other FDI enterprises, which have been completed their equitization process or gone through IPO, will soon be listed, including Royal International Corporation (VND 330 billion of chartered capital), Full Power Joint-stock Company (VND 100 billion), Taycera Joint-stock Company (VND 250 billion) and Chang Yih Enamel Joint-stock Company (VND 90.48 billion).
