Banpu disposes 8.72% Indo Tambang

Banpu Minerals (Singapore) Ltd, subsidiary of Thai Banpu Public Company Limited, plans to place 98.5 million shares in coal mining company PT Indo Tambangraya Tbk (ITMG) in a bid to snap up Rp3.56 trillion-Rp3.79 trillion.
A source familiar with the matter said Banpu, arranged by international placement agent Goldman Sachs, last night started to hold book building. 
"Book building started last night and might be accomplished this afternoon," the source said.
Banpu offers 73.9 million shares of Indo Tambang with option to add 24.6 million shares. In total, Banpu will dispose 98.5 million shares or 8.72% stakes
According to the source, Goldman determined to sell Indo Tambang at Rp36.150-Rp38,500 per share or 2%-8% discount from Indo Tambang's closing price yesterday.
Three local houses PT Bahana Securities, PT Danareksa Sekuritas, and PT Mandiri Sekuritas also involve the placement with 10% allocation.
 "Mandiri Sekuritas is mandated 4%, while Bahana and Danareksa obtain 3% respectively," the source said.
Bahana Director Eko Yuliantoro didn't recognize the shares sale. "We don't have any information about the placement," he said.
Danareksa President Director Marciano Herman and Mandiri Sekuritas Executive Director declined to comment.
