Trinity Securities Co., Ltd. is its financial advisor and SCB Securities Co., Ltd. is a co-lead underwriter.

ACE Chairman of Executive Committee Jiratha Songmetta said that with experience and expertise in renewable business, expanded from over 40 years in integrated agriculture industry, the company has accumulated strong expertise in efficient and stable renewable energy production using environment-friendly technology to generate power from various agricultural wastes. Therefore, the clean power plants can help reduce waste emission in the communities. It can be considered a model green energy power plant, caring for environmental, sustainability and governance aspects in line with its vision. The fund raised will be used for investment in 19 power plants under development and under negotiations, consisting of biomass, hybrid (biomass and solar), and municipal solid waste, as well as future projects.

ACE's three major shareholders after IPO are Wirachai Songmetta (22.4 percent of the paid-up capital), Pornmett Songmetta (21 percent), and Teerawut Songmetta (18.5 percent). The IPO price was determined by a book building process, under which an indicative price range was set and institutional investors had a chance to submit bids for desired number of shares at prices they would be willing to pay. The company and the lead underwriter had to jointly determine the final IPO price, by taking into consideration the company's required capital and demand in shares at a certain level to stabilize price in the secondary market. The company's dividend policy is to pay no less than 30 percent of net profit of its separate financial statements after corporate income tax and legal reserves.
