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.
