Meanwhile, Home Pottery would be the first listed company from Lampang province in the northern part of Thailand, relative to the current trend that both enterprises in both Bangkok and the provinces have realized fundraising via the stock market as a key investment tool for business expansion.

HPT has a paid-up registered capital of THB 130 million, consisting of 400 million existing common shares and 120 million newly issued shares, with a par value of THB 0.25 each. The company offered newly issued shares to the general public via IPO during June 18-19 and 22 at THB 1.00 each, for a total of THB 120 million. Asset Pro Management Co., Ltd. was its financial advisor, while Phillip Securities (Thailand) pcl was its lead underwriter.

HPT Managing Director Niran Chourkittisopon said that this listing would enhance the company's image and strengthen financial capability. The fund raised would be used to improve production line's effectiveness and expand capacities to serve the growing market demand. It would also be used to expand distribution channels as well as for working capital and marketing purposes.

HPT's three major shareholders after the IPO are Chourkittisopon's family (70.71 percent), Roythavornkij's family(6.22 percent) and Thanatat Pattana Co., Ltd. (0.58 percent). The IPO price was equivalent to price per earnings ratio (P/E ratio) of 43.10 times, calculated by using the company's net profit in the past four quarters (April 1, 2014 – Mar 31, 2015) of THB 12.09 million divided by fully diluted shares, representing earnings per share of THB 0.0232.
