Long-haul carrier AirAsia X, founded by entrepreneur Tony Fernandes, launched on Monday an up to $370 million initial public offering in Malaysia, seeking to raise funds to repay bank loans and for capital expenditures, according to a term sheet of the deal seen by Reuters.

The company and its shareholders are offering 790.1 million shares in an indicative price range for institutional investors of 1.15 ringgit to 1.45 ringgit. About 75 per cent of the offering will come from new shares, according to the terms.
