Capital Raising Wrap

Capital Raises Weekly Wrap - 26/07/2021

This past week has seen two large placements undertaken by (ASX:PBH) and (ASX:DUB) who combined raised $325m, more than half of funds raised across all placements. Funds were raised primarily from overseas and institutional investors.

The health sector also began to see some activity with three raises taking place to combine to raise $147m. (ASX:IMU) raised to $90m to fund their prospective programmes for the next four years, with a focus on developing immuno-oncology assets. (ASX:ARX) raised $47m primarily to restore cash on their balance sheet, but also to invest in US commercial operations, and support their research and development pipeline. (ASX:CAN) raised the last $10m in the sector to support investment in further integration of their supply chain and expand the production capabilities of its medicinal cannabis products.

Placement Overview

*Placements are limited to those which left a trading halt between 26/07 and 30/07.

Pointsbet Holdings Limited (ASX:PBH) raised $215.1m via placement with an additional $184.9m to be raised through a 1 for 9 entitlement offer. Funds will be used for US marketing and client acquisition, technology and product development, US market access and licensing fees, scaling operations and investment in talent, and balance sheet flexibility. The issue price of $10.00 represented an 11.4% discount to the last close of $11.29 and a 16% discount to the 5 day VWAP of $11.91.

Simble Solutions Limited (ASX:SIS) raised $1.5m via placement with funds to be used to accelerate growth activities in Australia and the UK including strengthening sales and marketing capability, increasing technology delivery capacity and online e-commerce initiatives for CarbonView. Investors who participated will receive one free attaching option for every two shares subscribed for under the placement exercisable at $0.04 with a three-year term.

The offer price represented a 7% discount to the last closing price and an 8.6% discount to the 5-day VWAP.
