HÀ NỘI — Real estate-retail-technology giant Vingroup plans to sell 250 million private shares to a maximum of five foreign investors in the remaining months of the year.
The selling price is set at a minimum of VNĐ100,000 (US$4.30) per share, valuing the deal at least at VNĐ25 trillion ($1.07 billion).
Vingroup has VNĐ32.75 trillion in charter capital, which is divided into 3.19 billion common shares and 84 million preferred shares.
Capital raised from the share issuance will be spent on developing its agriculture and technology sub-units (VNĐ6 trillion), paying loans and interest (VNĐ10 trillion) and providing additional capital for the parent company and subsidiaries (VNĐ9 trillion).
As of December 31, 2018, Vingroup had VNĐ289 trillion in total assets and VNĐ99 trillion in equity.
The upcoming share issuance is included in the company’s files and will be reported to shareholders at its annual shareholder meeting, the date of which is not yet known.
In August 2018, Vingroup sold 84 million preferred shares to the South Korean firm Hanwha Asset Management for VNĐ9.3 trillion.
The company has 3.19 billion common shares listed on the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange (HoSE: VIC).
