Funding Opportunities

Last week, Goldenport Holdings Inc. announced a share issue by way of a “placing and open offer” to raise approximately STG 23.5 million or $35 million. The company intends to issue ~18.5 million shares at 127 pence per share, a discount of 1.55% from the prior day’s closing price. In order to demonstrate their commitment as well as to maintain their share position, Captain Paris Dragnis, the founder and CEO of Goldenport, along with certain directors have irrevocably undertaken to acquire approximately 7.5 million shares or approximately 40.7% of the offering. Seeing opportunities based upon the economic recovery and improving shipping fundamentals, the company intends to use the proceeds to fund future acquisitions. Assuming a conservative 50% leverage, the company will have at least $70 million of capacity to go shopping. Jefferies and Panmure Gordon are the joint bookrunners and underwriters with HSBC acting as Sponsor and Financial Adviser.
