MEXICO CITY - The initial public offering for tequila maker Jose Cuervo priced at the top of an expected range at 34 pesos per share, the company said on Thursday, kicking off the first Mexican initial public offering since Donald Trump won the U.S. presidency in November.

Including the overallotment option, the IPO raised 18.64 billion pesos ($912.6 million), the company said in a statement.

The share price confirmed a report by sources familiar with the matter consulted by Reuters on Wednesday, who said there was strong investor demand for the offering.

The company, officially known as Becle, put its IPO on hold twice last year, after Trump's relationship with Mexico became strained over the issue of immigration, sending the peso currency to a string of record lows. ($1 = 20.4260 Mexican pesos)
