  • PE looks good but no dividend policy declared.
    Worth to subscribe?
    what range of subscription will be best for getting the IPO (eg this? ) 10,000 or?

  • I think this is a good company. Ideal Jacobs is US based company & was in business in US since 1920s. 40% of shares of Ideal Jacobs Malaysia are belong to their parent in the US.

    With the small number of shares available, it will be very difficult to get. By looking at previous ballot, anything less than 100,000 shares have small chance to get.
