SCB X PCL (SCBX) achieved remarkable success with its debenture offering debut, worth a total of 50-billion-baht from 6 series, catering to individual, high-net worth, and institutional investors. The public offering (PO) series received an overwhelmingly reception from individual investors, with the 15-billion-baht fully subscribed within a short period of time. In order to provide more investment opportunities with attractive returns and low risk, SCBX exercised an additional 10 billion baht by exercising a greenshoe option. The 25-billion-baht total PO offering size marked as Thailand’s largest ever debenture public offering (individual investors) through 100% digital channel.
Expressing gratitude to individual, high-net worth, and institutional investors, Mr. Arthid Nanthawithaya, Chief Executive Officer of SCBX, said, "We truly appreciate investors’ confidence in SCBX's commitment and potential business growth.
