  • their revenue is growing by year, nice ipo I can think of, however still need to review their prospectus.

  • Any recommendation about this ? can purchase?

  • Should buy hold for long term.

    Good growth.

  • Looks good, since everyone is hogging money to go for Felda Global Ventures. I like their overseas revenue from the ‘weird’ countries who might be shielded from Europe’s problems.

  • I like this IPO as well when looking at the growth. If they have a good dividend policy, this IPO should be better.
