Thai Airways announced details of its planned public offering, which will include new shares for the Thai Government, as well as retail and existing investors (Reuters/The Nation, 17-Aug-2010). The sale will not be offered through a rights issue as originally planned. The offering ratio is to be announced on the same day as it announces the offering price, to be determined by bookbuilding method.
