TOKYO, Nov 28 (Reuters) – Online gaming firm Nexon Co said on Monday it would raise up to 98 billion yen ($1.3 billion) in an initial public offering this month, pushing ahead with its planned listing even as a massive hacking attack threatens to dampen excitement for the stock.
Nexon, founded in South Korea in 1994 and now based in Japan, said in a statement on Monday that it had set the price range for the IPO at 1,200-1,400 yen per share, compared with a 1,360 yen tentative price announced earlier this month.
The company is due to list on the Tokyo Stock Exchange on Dec. 14 in what is expected to be Japan’s largest IPO since drugmaker Otsuka Holdings attracted around 160 billion yen in December 2010.
