"The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has considered favorably the initial public offerings (IPO) of real estate investment trusts (REIT) sponsored by Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC) and Megaworld Corporation," it said.
RL Commercial REIT will offer up to 3.3 billion secondary common shares for up to P7.31 per share with an overallotment option of up to 305 million common shares. It could raise up to P25.88 billion in net proceeds with the overallotment fully exercised, the SEC said.
