oOh!media Limited has revealed it has successfully completed an institutional placement to raise $60 million through the issue of approximately 12.6 million new shares (Offer).
The placement price of $4.75 per new share (Offer Price), represents a 2.9 per cent discount to the last close price of $4.89 on Monday, 10 October 2016.
A majority of the proceeds from the Offer will be used to fund the acquisition of Executive Channel Network. The acquisition of ECN adds significant scale to oOh!’s existing CBD offering and expands oOh!’s exposure to a premium CBD audience.
The Offer attracted significant demand from both new and existing domestic and international investors, resulting in the Offer being substantially oversubscribed at the Offer Price.
oOh!’s chief executive Brendon Cook said, “We are very pleased with the strong level of demand for the Offer. This demonstrates support for the acquisition of ECN, our strategy in creating a diversified digital advertising platform that is unmissable and the positive outlook this transaction creates for oOh!’s future.”
Settlement of the Offer is expected on Friday, 14 October 2016, with allotment and commencement of trading of new shares expected on 17 October 2016.
