BANGKOK, March 23, 2016 -The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) will list TPBI

SET Senior Executive Vice President Santi Kiranand said that TPBI would list and

TPBI's CEO Somsak Borrisuttanakul said that the listing of TPBI on SET would 
strengthen financial capabilities. The fund raised would be used as working
capital and to increase production capacity, expand business and developing
environmentally friendly packaging to be in line with CSR in process policy,
customer lifestyles and global demand.

TPBI's three major shareholders after IPO are Borrisuttanakul group (73.91 
percent), Deutsche Bank AG, London (4.00 percent), and Cheer (Thailand) Co., Ltd

ratio) of 11.87 times calculated by using the company's 2015 net profit, divided
by fully diluted shares, representing earnings per share of THB 0.91. TPBI's
dividend policy is to pay no less than 50 percent of net profits after taxes and
