The entire newly issued shares were offered to general public via IPO at THB 2.88 each, for a total of THB 403.20 million, during March 7-9, 2018. AEC Securities pcl is its financial advisor and lead underwriter.

CHAYO Chief Executive Officer Suksan Yasasin said that CHAYO has over 20 years of experience in debt collection services before expanding to non-performing asset management business at a later stage. Listing on mai would capitalize opportunities to acquire non-performing assets consisting of both secured and unsecured types, to carry out loan repayment to financial institutions, and as working capital.

CHAYO's three major shareholders after the IPO are Yasasin Family (71.31 percent), Munnithiworakul Family (2.14 percent) and Chamwuthipreecha Family (1.25 percent). The IPO price was equivalent to price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 27.69 times calculated by using the company's net profit in the past 12 months (January 1- December 31, 2017) totaling THB 58.24 million divided by fully diluted shares, representing earnings per share of THB 0.104. CHAYO's dividend policy is to pay no less than 40 percent of net profit from the company's separate financial statements, after legal reserves.
