Intueri climbs 12% in training group's NZX debut

Intueri climbs 12% in training group's NZX debut

By Suze Metherell

May 23 (BusinessDesk) – Intueri Education Group rose 12 percent in its NZX debut after owner Arowana International spun off the private training school operator about a year after its own listing on the ASX through a reverse takeover.

The shares first traded at $2.63 after being sold in an initial public offering at $2.35, and were recently at $2.70, giving the company a market value of $270 million. That values Arowana's remaining 24.9 percent holding at $67 million.

Intueri is set to become New Zealand’s largest private training establishment by domestic students, with 6,000 local enrollments and a further 1,000 international students each year, across 26 locations. It also owns half of Online Courses Australia. After listing, Intueri has said it will look to expand in the private education sector in New Zealand and its Australian online education business.

Massey University chancellor and former Landcorp chief executive Chris Kelly is chairman of the company.

Arowana used the shell of insulation business Intelligent Solar, which was placed in administration in 2011 after being caught by the Australian federal government's decision to end a subsidy programme. In turn, it is part of Arowana & Co, set up in 2007 as a type of private equity investor looking at a wide range of businesses.

Arowana shares last traded on the ASX at 88 Australian cents and have climbed 83 percent since their debut in April 2013.
