Drecom IPO update February 12, 2006

Posted by fukumimi in IPO, IT, Japan.

Drecom, the Japanese blog and search advertising firm IPO’d on the MOTHERS exchange on the 9th.

Just 2000 shares were offered, at a price of JPY760,000. Currently the share price is at JPY3.15million having reached maximum allowable single day gains on the first two days of trading.
The current share price values the company at more than $600M, with a PER of more than 500.

Financials for the year ending March 2005 were net profits of approx $0.5M on sales of approx $2.5M.

Crazy PERs are not uncommon on the emerging market exchanges in Japan, but this takes the biscuit.
