Malaysia IPO Market Is Heating Up


The Malaysia IPO Market in 2011

Malaysia IPOAn overlooked Initial Public Offering (IPO) market is the Malaysia IPO market, which has been heating up during 2011, and should continue to be strong in 2012.  The Malaysia IPO market offers many opportunities to buy emerging market company IPOs in the fast growing Asia-Pacific region that have great potential to make gains in the years to come.

2011 has been a good year for the Malaysia IPO market.  Up to mid-December 2011, a total of twenty-eight IPOs had been rolled out on the Malaysia stock exchange, Bursa Malaysia.

Bumi Armada Bhd., UOA Development Bhd. and MSM Malaysia Bhd were the top three Malaysia IPOs to enter the Malaysia IPO market in 2011.  Bumi Armada Bhd., which is a Malaysian oil and gas services company, raised $890 Million in Malaysia’s largest IPO of 2011.

There is no lack of interest in the Malaysia IPO market.  The Bumi Armada Bhd and MSM Malaysia Bhd IPOs were oversubscribed by more than 25 times, according to investment industry sources.  The relatively small number of Malaysia IPOs that are offered through the Malaysia IPO market each year has made investor demand for quality Malaysia IPOs very high.

Outlook For The Malaysia IPO Market in 2012

2012 might be an even better year for the Malaysia IPO market than 2011 was.  A number of large blue chip companies are planning on entering the Malaysia IPO market in 2012 via sales of a portion of their common stock to the public via Bursa Malaysia IPOs.

Felda Global, which is a large producer of palm oil, sugar, and other crop products that are in high demand, is expected to be a large IPO in the 2012 Malaysia IPO market.  The company is expected to raise nearly $1 Billion when its IPO hits the Malaysia IPO market in 2012, and will use the money raised in the IPO to expand operations.

Integrated Healthcare Holdings, a large Malaysian hospital operator that has operations in Malaysia, Singapore and India, is looking to raise up to $2 Billion in 2012 through the Malaysia IPO market.  The company will use the money raised from the IPO to continue its aggressive expansion program in the Asian region.

The Gas Malaysia Bhd IPO that was expected to debut in the Malaysia IPO market during the fourth quarter of 2011 has been delayed until 2012 because the company was not able to meet all of the listing requirements set forth by Malaysia security regulators.  Gas Malaysia Bhd, which is a major natural gas and liquefied petroleum gas distributor in Malaysia, is likely to be one of the biggest IPOs in the Malaysia IPO market during 2012.

Despite a potentially slow world economy in 2012, the Malaysia IPO market is expected to continue to be robust in 2012, and will offer exceptional emerging market investment opportunities.
