San Miguel powers SMC Global float

HONG KONG (Dow Jones Investment Banker) – The board of San Miguel Corp., the Filipino beer-to-infrastructure conglomerate, approved the reorganization of its power business and an increase in its share capital on August 12. After exploring several options, including a possible backdoor listing, San Miguel has settled for an IPO in Manila of up to US$500 million for its 75% subsidiary SMC Global Power Holdings. Macro factors, as well as current expansion plans for the business, look attractive, but San Miguel shareholders are unlikely to gain much through the value arbitrage.
