DC Healthcare to raise RM49.81mil from IPO

KUALA LUMPUR: ACE Market-bound DC Healthcare Holdings Bhd aims to raise RM49.81mil from its initial public offering (IPO) to fund its growth plans.

In conjunction with the launch of its IPO prospectus, the aesthetic medical services provider said RM9.44mil of the proceeds will go towards establishing aesthetic medical clinics and RM13.12mil for the purchase of medical machinery and equipment.

RM6.24mil will go towards the payment of borrowings while RM17.01 will be used for working capital including staff salaries as well as medical supplies and consumables.

The remaining RM4mil will be used for listing expenses.

“DC Healthcare’s expansion plan is based on demand for aesthetic medical services as people are becoming more aware on skin health, as well as wanting to look and feel good about themselves, especially in the long run.

“It is projected that aesthetic medical services and general medical services related to skin disease will increase due to people having more disposable income for discretionary spending and becoming better educated on skin conditions,” said managing director Dr Chong Tze Sheng.

Meanwhile, M&A Securities Sdn Bhd deputy head of corporate finance Danny Wong said the growing acceptance of aesthetic medical services leads to a projected domestic compound annual growth rate of 18.8% from 2021 to 2027, for a total market value of RM1.03bil.
