May 27--FIMI Opportunity Funds floated Inrom Industries Ltd. on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange (TASE) on Monday at a company value of NIS 800 million, after lowering the planning minimum price for the offering, and overcoming negative sentiment in the primary market. FIMI had planned to float Inrom at a company value of NIS 1 billion, and cut the minimum price to reflect a company value of NIS 737 million.
The institutional stage was oversubscribed 1.6-fold, with more than NIS 400 million in offers, and NIS 425 million if all options are exercised. FIMI will keep a 49% stake in Inrom.
