Bangkok - 28 February 2011 - In a tremendous show of confidence, shareholders of Indorama Ventures Public Company Limited, the world's leading vertically integrated Polyester Value Chain producer, decided overwhelmingly to subscribe to the company's rights issue, which closed on 25 February, and support the company's four year expansion plan.
