Japan's Line sets top price for up to US$1.3b IPO
[TOKYO] Line Corp set the price for its initial public offering at the top of its marketing range, raising up to US$1.3 billion, a regulatory filing showed on Monday, reflecting robust appetite for the Japanese messaging app firm.
The company set the IPO price at 3,300 yen per share, compared with its book-building range of 2,900-3,300 yen. It had initially set the range at 2,700-3,200 yen but bumped it up last week. Including an overallotment arrangement, Line will sell up to 132.8 billion yen (S$1.77 billion) of shares.
Line, owned by South Korea's Naver Corp, plans to list in New York on July 14 and in Tokyo the following day.
