Robinsons Retail Holdings (RRHI) IPO



The retail arm of the Robinsons Group of Companies is set to offer its shares to the public in an Initial Public Offering (IPO) scheduled this October.

The Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) approved the IPO application of Robinsons Retail Holdings, Inc. which plans to raise up to P42 billion in said offering.

Shares Offered and IPO Price

The company plans to issue 461.89 million primary shares and an additional 22.85 million shares through an over-allotment option in case of strong demand.

The final offer price is to be determined on October 25 but Robinsons Retail Holdings said it will not exceed P86.64 per share.

If the maximum price is reached and the total number of shares including those for over-allotment are sold, the company will raise more than P41.99 billion — one of the highest IPOs in the Philippines in recent years.
