What is a DvP Settlement?

Delivery Versus Payment (DvP) is a common settlement method that ensures shares are only delivered to an investor when payment has been secured. This form of settlement is effected by the ASX's CHESS system (Clearing House Electronic Sub-register System). It does this electronically by simultaneously transferring legal ownership of the shares with the transfer of funds. This is distinct from a 'manual' settlement where an investor will transfer funds to an issuer and receive shares direct from the registry.  DvP is designed to avoid settlement risk, where one party might fail to deliver on their side of the transaction.

How does bidding work?

Fresh follows the typical book build approach for bidding: 1. An indicative bid - investor confirms their eligibility and submits a bid. This is not yet a firm bid. 2. Confirmation - investor confirms the bid, it is now firm and irrevocable.  3. Allocation & settlement - the company determines the allocation amount and presents the investor with a placement letter and settlement details.  Fresh investors also have the ability to express interest in deals before they go live!

Why do offers close early?

Frequent participants in capital raises will be aware that offers rarely close at the advertised “bids due” time. For investors, this can make it difficult to know exactly how long you have to research and prepare a bid and in some cases can result in a missed opportunity.  Clarity over the access, bidding, timing and allocation for an offer depends on how Fresh is participating in the capital raise. Below is a list of the ways that Fresh can participate in a capital raise from most clarity to least: 1. Participating directly with the company - Helping to arrange the offer 2. Participating directly with the company - Another broker or advisor arranging the offer 3. Through the lead manager of the offer 4. Through a joint lead manager of the offer 5. Through a syndicating broker

Rights issues, entitlement offers and share purchase plans may be underwritten. This means that an underwriter (usually a broker or bank) is guaranteeing that the amount sought by the company will be raised. A sub-underwriter may be appointed to take up some or all of the underwriter’s subscription obligation. A sub-underwriter assumes a portion of the risk and usually receives a cash fee for doing so. Sophisticated/professional investors can be invited to bid for sub-underwriting.
