Indies Pharma IPO coming this week

Last year summer was hot, very hot for the Jamaica stock market as for the first time there were multiple Initial Public Offers (IPO) on the local market at the same time.
This summer is turning out to be another hot one as well. Already, there are two new issues out with Stanley Motta and Mayberry Jamaican Equity to open this week.
Information reaching IC is that another Montego Bay based company, Indies Pharma will issue its prospectus by the end of this week, to raise around $400 million. The issue is likely to be priced at just under 10 times 2017 earnings but slightly less, based on earnings for 2018, IC Insider gathers. According to the company’s website, they have approximately more than hundred drug presentations in the market and have filed to have more than 350 drugs licensed at the Jamaica Ministry of Health and hope to capture 10 percent of the local market after they obtain the licenses. The broker handling the offer is GK Capital.
IC Insider also gathers that there is a venture capital firm offering shares in a private placement currently.
