CSE Global 544 has proposed to place 60 million shares at an issue price of 40 cents per share, amounting to an aggregate consideration of $24 million.

The proposed placement is not underwritten and will be undertaken by way of an exempt offering in Singapore in accordance with Sections 272B, 274 and 275 of the Securities and Futures Act (SFA).

The issue price represents a discount of around 6.6% to the volume weighted average price (VWAP) of 42.81 cents for the shares traded on March 13.

The placement shares represent about 9.8% of the company’s existing share capital of 614,882,023 shares. It will represent about 8.9% of the enlarged share base thereafter.

According to CSE, the proposed placement will increase resources available to the company to pursue further inorganic growth through strategic acquisitions or investments primarily in its existing markets, including the US, Australia and New Zealand.  

On a pro forma basis, the group’s net tangible assets (NTA) per share would have been 21.62 cents instead of 19.96 cents after the proposed placement should it have been completed on Dec 31, 2023.
