Superloop Limited (ASX: SLC) (“Superloop”) is pleased to announce that it has completed a fully underwritten placement of 8.9 million new fully paid ordinary shares to raise $20.0 million of additional capital (“Placement”).
The funds raised from the Placement will be used to provide funding support for further customer-led network expansion, possible strategic acquisitions and balance sheet flexibility for future strategic growth opportunities.
The Placement was offered to institutional and sophisticated investors at $2.25 per share, representing an 11.4% discount to the closing share price on 19 September 2017 ($2.54) and a 10.7% discount to the 5 day volume weighted average price ($2.52).
New shares issued under the Placement will rank equally with existing shares on issue.
The capital raising is within Superloop’s existing placement capacity under ASX Listing Rule 7.1 and accordingly shareholder approval is not required.
Settlement of the Placement is expected to occur on Friday 29 September 2017.
