The offer was well oversubscribed, raising a total of $5M at $0.20 per share for an indicative market capitalisation of $25.3M. The IPO attracted strong support from institutional and retail investors. This included significant take-up from SOCO’s employees, further solidifying alignment towards SOCO’s continuing success.
There was no sell-down as part of the IPO, with SOCO’s founding team retaining a 79.2% shareholding and electing to voluntarily escrow 100% of their holding for 12-months from listing.
The IPO represents SOCO’s first ever external capital raising since its founding nine years ago. The only tradable shares will be those issued at IPO.
