Sunway REIT IPO may be fully covered

The institutional segment of the initial public offering of Malaysia’s largest real estate investment trust, Sunway REIT, has been “fully covered" at above 90 sen per unit, two sources with direct knowledge of the matter said.

But Sunway REIT may have to price its IPO at the lower end of its indicated range because of deteriorating market conditions, the sources told Reuters on Thursday.

“The book is fully covered. It’s oversubscribed by about 1.2 times now. It’s quite an achievement given the current market conditions,” said one of the sources, who asked not to be named because he is not authorised to speak to the media.

The company last week set the indicative price range for the sale of 1.6 billion units of the REIT at between 90 sen and 98 sen per unit.
This means the IPO could raise between RM1.44 billion to RM1.57 billion.
