Due to strong interest in the latest CapitaMalls Asia (CMA) retail bonds, CMA doubled the total bond size to $400 million consisting of two tranches:
a) Public offer tranche of $220 million
b) Placement tranche of $180 million
For the public offer tranche, it was 4.65 times subscribed (over the initial $100 million on offer). The placement tranche was more than 2 times subscribed over the initial $100 million on offer).
Allocation of Public Offer Tranche
Because there are more application money than the amount of bonds on offer, not all applicants were allocated the full amount they wanted. CMA allocate the full amount applied for applicants applying $2,000 to $5,000. Small time investors were given opportunities to own the bonds. All other applicants applying $6,000 to more than $2 million were allocated partial amounts requested for. For example, applicants for $10,000 were only allocated $6,000. Applicants applying for $1,000,000 were only allocated $365,000.
This way, CMA spreads out successful applicants to more retail investors rather than restrict to few rich individuals. It also allows more players to trade the bonds on the Singapore Exchange.
