Fuji TV names its price

TOKYO — The initial price for Fuji Television Network Inc. (Fuji TV) stock has been set at 550,000 yen ($4,782), Reuters reported Tuesday. The network will go public Aug. 8, with a listing on the first section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE).

Exchange officials declined to confirm the list price of the Fuji TV shares. Fuji TV will offer 84,000 new shares for its public listing. It has already issued 30,500 shares.

The new office and broadcasting facility were built at a cost of $1.3 billion.
