SAO PAULO, June 29 (Reuters) - Brazil's Grupo Dimed , owner of drugstone chain Panvel and drug distribution company Dimed, is preparing a share offering that could reach 800 million reais ($146 million), Brazilian financial blog Brazil Journal reported on Monday.
The offering will be managed by the investment banking units of Banco Bradesco SA, Itau Unibanco Holding SA and Banco BTG Pactual SA, the blog said.
The company, which has low liquidity in Brazil's stock exchange, plans to convert all its shares into common stock and join Novo Mercado, a market segment with higher governance rules.
