For the first tranche, A Brown will offer 10 million preferred shares at an offer price of P100 per share or P1B worth with an oversubscription option of up to 5 million preferred shares worth P500 million.

On 11 November 2021, A Brown approved the issuance of the preferred shares with an initial dividend rate of 7.0% p.a. to be paid quarterly. The public offer period will run from November 15-19, 2021, with tentative listing scheduled on November 29, 2021.

Proceeds from the offering will be used to sustain the company’s expansion.

On the assumption of oversubscription, P600 million from the proceeds will support development of pipeline of real estate projects located in key cities in Luzon and Mindanao.
