The Institutional Entitlement Offer raised approximately AU$93 million through the issue of approximately 71.8 million new units at an issue price of AU$1.295 per new unit. The existing eligible institutional unitholders offer have strongly backed the offer, taking up approximately 96.7% of their entitlements.
The institutional shortfall was heavily oversubscribed by both the new institutional investors and existing eligible institutional unitholders of the company. The new units will be entitled to the distribution for the current quarter and will rank equally in all respects with existing units from the date of allotment.
Under the Institutional Entitlement Offer, the new units are expected to be allotted on 4 May 2021 and trading is expected to commence on the ASX on the same day.
The company’s trading halt had been lifted today and trading in its share price had been recommenced. Home Consortium (ASX:HMC), HDN’s largest unitholder, has committed to utilise its full entitlement rights (from its 26.6% investment in HDN) equating to AU$70.6 million, which will settle as part of the Retail Entitlement Offer.
