Double Dragon (DD) IPO: 14 times oversubscribed

According to the Chairman and CEO of Double Dragon Properties, the first company to conduct an Initial Public Offering (IPO) this year, the company’s IPO offer was 14 times oversubscribed, a sign that there may be healthy demand for the stock.

“We are grateful for the support at 14x (oversubscription to base offer),” said Edgar Injap Sia II, head of Double Dragon Properties Corp. in an interview with the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

Sia made the comment after the company completed the bookbuilding process which ran from March 17 to 20.

IPO Price and Offer Details

Double Dragon (DD) also announced that the share’s final offer price has been pegged at P2.00, the maximum price originally indicated by the company.

Double Dragon is expected to raise as much as P1.16 billion by selling 579.73 million common shares, leading to a public float of 26% after the IPO.  At a P2.00 offer price, the company’s market capitalization is estimated at P4.46 billion.

Shares will be offered to the public during the offer period which will run from March 25 to April 1.

The stock will then be listed and will start trading on the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) starting April 7 using the stock ticker “DD”.

Company Profile

DoubleDragon Properties was initially called Injap Land Corp. and was wholly owned by Sia, founder of the Mang Inasal chain of restaurants. Ton Tan Caktiong of Jollibee Foods Corp. (JFC) later acquired 50% of the company through his HoneyStar Holdings Corp. The 50-50 real estate joint venture between Sia and Caktiong paved the way for the company to be renamed DoubleDragon Properties Corp.

The company envisions to be one of the largest commercial and residential property developers in the Philippines by 2020. Double Dragon Properties owns 66% of  CityMall Commercial Centers, Inc. (CMCI), while the remaining 34% is owned by mall tycoon Henry Sy’s conglomerate SM Investments Corp. (SM).

CMCI aims to build CityMalls, branded community mall chains, primarily on the high-growth areas of Visayas and Mindanao region. The company plans to roll out the first 5 CityMalls within 2014 and the next 20 by 2015. The company will spend majority of the IPO proceeds in developing CityMalls and other real estate development projects in Metro Manila, Visayas and Mindanao.

  1. I really like your writing style, excellent information, thanks for putting up :D. “You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses.” by Ziggy.

  2. Very interesting! I asked my mom to buy shares in DD when I heard of their IPO but she ignored me.

    Can I still buy DD shares?? I’m a college freshman and I only plan to spend 25k… I’m afraid brokers might not entertain me since I’m only going to invest a small amount.. Which broker do you suggest? Thanks a lot! 🙂
