United Test and Assembly Center Ltd. Key Developments

UTAC Plans IPO In 2015

United Test and Assembly Center Ltd. (UTAC) is planning an initial public offering (IPO). It is talks with bankers about a possible relisting. An IPO would capitalize on an unfolding upturn in its business, and enable the company to address its debt load of some $1.2 billion. UTAC's Chief Executive Officer, John ¬Nelson told The Edge Singapore: "Do we want to be sitting on a 10% bond? I don't think so. Obviously, at some point, we have to look at options. Since we feel the company is healthy, what opportunities do we have to correct that, to fix that financial burden?" He added that an IPO could take place next year. He further stated that any cash raised in an IPO is likely to be used to "restructure" the group's debt. "Based on our discussions with them, we don't believe there is an intention to use that cash themselves," he said.
