Myer Prospectus Released

Here is the latest update on the initial public offering of Myer shares.

Today the prospectus was made available for download on the Myer website. I have downloaded it and had a quick scan through.

One thing that struck me is that there is no application form. As far as I can tell, retail investors have 3 options to invest in the float:
  • as a staff member of Myer;
  • as a member of the loyalty card program; or
  • through an allocation from a stock broker.
If you don't fall into one of these categories, the prospectus says that you will be eligible if you're a member of Myer One loyalty card program on 23 October 2009. I guess that means you still have time to become a member.

The offer will be priced between $3.90 and $4.90 per share with the final price to be set upon completion of the institutional offer.

It seems that demand will probably be strong as I read in The Age today that 140,000 investors have pre-registered their interest in the share offer.
