Love it or hate it, Moa Beer's IPO (complete with controversial investor prospectus) has been met with overwhelming demand and closed off a week early.

Moa raised $15 million from institutional investors and clients of NZX companies, plus an extra $1 million from the public at a $1.25 each.

Investors who didn't pre-register missed out, according to Moa.

Company chief executive Geoff Ross said: "Unfortunately we simply can't satisfy all applications, but do hope these people will join post listing and continue to enjoy the Moa range of beers."
