MNF Group paid $18.0m ($17.5m net of cash in the business) for CCI, which represents a multiple of 5.0 times current year forecast EBITDA.
MNF has funded the acquisition by raising $18.6m through a heavily oversubscribed placement of 4.13m shares to institutional and sophisticated investors at $4.50 per share (representing a 2.8% discount to the 5 day VWAP). Taylor Collison was Sole Lead Manager to the Placement.
Share Purchase Plan
MNF has also offered eligible shareholders in Australia the opportunity to participate in a Share Purchase Plan (SPP) at the same price of $4.50 per share. This raising is capped at $3.0m with a maximum allotment of shares to the value of $15,000 per shareholder. The SPP offer was opened on 7 February and will close on 21 February 2017. Details of the SPP has been sent to all eligible shareholders who were on the MNF share register at close of business on 31 January 2017. As there were over 3,000 eligible shareholders on the register at that time, significant scale back on SPP applications may be necessary.
