Of the amount, $2.35 billion was placed with institutional and accredited investors. The remaining $50 million will be offered to individual investors, who may submit their applications from 9am on Aug 5 to 12pm on Aug 10. The minimum sum for retail investors is $1,000, or 10 application units of $100 each.
