Bashundhara Paper Mills, a concern of Bashundhara Group, will hold IPO lottery on May 30 to allocate shares among the successful general applicants.

The company's initial public offering (IPO) hit more than nine-time higher than the shares earmarked for the general investors, officials said.

The IPO results will be published on the websites of Dhaka Stock Exchange (DSE), Chittagong Stock Exchange (CSE) and the company after the lottery programme.

Remaining 10.40 million shares or 40 per cent will be issued to the general shareholders, including non-resident Bangladeshis, at 10 per cent discount on cut-off price, meaning the general investors will get the company's share at Tk 72 each.
