MIH Announcement on Basis of Allotment
You may check whether your IPO application is successful or not using your IC number or company registration number at MIH website. Hopefully MIH will be quick enough putting up the list of successful/unsuccessful applicants in their website.
Check IPO application status & results http://mih.com.my/enquiry.php
Alternatively, if you were applied online through internet banking, you may check through your eIPO or eShare status. This method may be more efficient than the MIH website, as the banks will update the IPO application status in your internet banking and refund your application monies within few working days should your application is not successful. This is way more faster and efficient than you buy a bank draft and submit your IPO application form manually.
Update: Applications via all internet banking should have the application status update now. CIMB, Maybank, Affin and RHB Bank. Check your internet banking now for application status.
Status of Application and Refund of Money
- Application via ATM or Internet Banking – MIH will inform banks of the unsuccessful or partially successful application (include successful application) within 2 market days after the balloting date. The application monies or the balance of it will be credited into the bank accounts within 2 market days after the receipt of confirmation from MIH. In total, you may check your bank account on the latest fifth market day, or earlier. If your application is under reserved or waiting list, but subsequently unsuccessful, the banks will refund to you within 10 market days from final ballot date.
- Application via White Application Form – The money will be refunded to you via the self-addressed and stamped Official A envelope you provided by ordinary post (for fully unsuccessful applications) or by registered post to your last address maintained with the Bursa Depository (CDS account address)(for partially successful applications) within 10 market days from the final ballot date.
PCG vs MMHE
Let’s compare how is PCG’s public non-bumi portion performed, compared to Malaysia Marine And Heavy Engineering Berhad (MMHE).
MMHE’s public non-bumi portion was oversubscribed by 12.36 times, representing a total application monies of approx RM 714 million.
16 million shares x RM3.61 per share x 12.36 times = RM714 million
PCG’s public non-bumi portion was oversubscribed by 5.40 times, representing a total application monies of approx RM 2,181 million.
80 million shares x RM5.05 per share x 5.4 times = RM2,181 million
It is noted that PCG has attracted an even stronger interest from the Malaysia public (non-bumi category), may thank to MMHE’s first day listing premium of RM0.71 or 20% jump over its retail price RM3.61.
Lastly, a BIG congratulation to you who have successfully applied for the IPO shares and looking forward for another strong and big debut premium on the listing day 26 Nov 2010, Friday.
