VinaCapital invests $45m in PV Power, Binh Son refinery in January IPOs 
Deal Street Asia

VinaCapital’s flagship fund, Vietnam Opportunity Fund (VOF) purchased the Binh Son Refining and Petrochemical (BSR) shares at a discount of 4% compared to the average price of VND23,000 ($1.01) for the equitization. The fund was able to secure around 10% of the available shares on offer with an investment of nearly $25 million in the refinery operator. BSR’s large market capitalization and its 33% market share of the oil refinery business in the country made it an attractive target. Meanwhile, VOF invested more than $20 million into PV Power, the second-largest power generator in Vietnam. This is also an attractive investment with an estimated P/E of 11.5x at the starting price of VND14,400 ($0.63). The IPOs of PV Power and BSR, which raised $308 million and $245 million respectively last month, marked a milestone in the equitization process of state-owned enterprises of Vietnam.
