Thai Billionaire Seeks Singapore Listing of Australian Assets
A Thai billionaire who owns residential and industrial properties in Australia is seeking to raise about SGD900 million through an initial public offering in Singapore. Thai billionaire Charoen Sirivadhanabhakdi, through his Singapore-based real-estate firm Frasers Centrepoint Ltd. ,agreed in 2014 to buy Australand for US$2.40 billion. Earlier this year, it was looking to pursue a real-estate investment trust or REIT IPO for some of the logistics and industrial assets of Australand in Singapore.

If successful, the deal would be one of the biggest in Singapore in more than three years. This deal, if successful, could also lift sentiment toward the IPO market in Southeast Asia, which has experienced a lack of investor demand for new offerings.
