Decmil settles institutional component of entitlement offer to support multi-operational loan facility

Project services provider Decmil Group (ASX:DCG) has settled the institutional component of an entitlement offer, raising about $4.562 million to improve its multi-operational loan facility and increase its surety bond capacity.

Under the institutional component of the entitlement offer, the company issued about 22.8 million redeemable convertible preference shares (RCPS) at $0.20 per RCPS. The company says the capital raised will be used to provide working capital to target projects with more equitable risk allocations.

Decmil also reports it dispatched a prospectus, along with personalised entitlement and acceptance forms, to eligible retail shareholders on Thursday (29 June 2023) for the retail component of the entitlement offer.

The company advises it will apply for the quotation of the RCPS issued under both the institutional and retail components of the entitlement offer once the retail entitlement offer is settled on 21 July 2023.

Decmil is also clarifying that the information contained in the institutional entitlement offer announcement was based on the information available to the company at the time. 

The precise number of RCPS that the institutional entitlement offer participants were entitled to subscribe for, and the corresponding amount that was raised under the institutional entitlement offer, has been calculated following the occurrence of the entitlement offer’s record date.
