The Placement Shares have been issued without a disclosure document in accordance with section 708 of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) (Act) and were issued under the Company's placement capacity under ASX Listing Rule 7.1A and 7.1.
The shares issued under the Placement were issued as follows:
- 47,200,055 shares were issued under the Company's 15% placement capacity under ASX Listing Rule 7.1; and
- 47,394,540 shares were issued under the Company's additional 10% placement capacity under ASX Listing Rule 7.1A.
Funds received from the Placement will be used to pay the final instalments relating to the Company's acquisitions of the DynamicOdds and Global Betting Services businesses (refer to the Company's ASX announcement dated 30 April 2019 for further details) and to fund the Company's growth initiatives, including its expansion in the U.S market.
The Company is in advanced negotiations of commercial terms with several US-based operators and, following U.S. regulatory approval, the Company expects to announce deals with licensed operators within New Jersey and other domestic and international racing bodies looking to offer their racing to these New Jersey licensed operators. While the Company has previously announced that it is awaiting final regulatory approval for Fixed Odds betting in New Jersey and at this stage has no firm date, the Company expects the final approval to be granted before the re-opening of racing at Monmouth Park on 3 July 2020.
