The total proceeds from the IPO were $833.1 million, with MYOB’s largest existing shareholder, Bain Capital, retaining approximately 58 per cent of the company.


The pricing gives MYOB an implied enterprise value of $2.57 billion.

Tim Reed, chief executive officer of MYOB, said listing on the ASX will be a proud moment for the whole MYOB team.

“In the past six years as a private company, we’ve transformed MYOB into a wonderfully innovative business that continues to focus on the needs and challenges of SMEs," Mr Reed said.

“We will welcome our new investors to participate with us in our growth as more and more small businesses head to the cloud to manage their accounts."

MYOB chairman Justin Milne added that he was pleased with the strong demand for the company’s shares shown by a range of investors.

“I am inspired by the great support we have received from investors around the world, including local institutions in Australia as well as US investors," he said.

“We saw a significant level of participation from eligible retail noteholders in the offer, with approximately 57 per cent of holders exchanging their notes into shares. We see this wide range of investor interest as a strong vote of confidence in MYOB.”
