Details of the Rights Issue
Havilah shareholders registered as at 7:00 pm (CDT) on 10 October 2017 (Record Date) will be eligible to participate in the Rights Issue (Eligible Shareholders). Each Eligible Shareholder will be entitled to subscribe for one New Share in Havilah at $0.20 for every seven shares registered in their name on the Record Date (Entitlement). For each two New Shares issued under the Offer, an attaching free New Option to acquire one ordinary share at $0.40 on or before 30 November 2019 will also be issued.
Eligible Shareholders who accept their Entitlement in full will have the opportunity to apply for additional New Shares at a price of $0.20 each (Additional New Shares) under a top up offer (Top Up Offer). Each two Additional New Shares will have an attaching free New Option to acquire one ordinary share at $0.40 on or before 30 November 2019. This Top Up Offer is an opportunity for those shareholders with less than a marketable parcel of shares to increase their holding to a marketable parcel. Applications for Additional New Shares will be satisfied to the extent that there is any shortfall in the take up of Entitlements (Shortfall). If the Offer and Top Up Offer are oversubscribed, the Directors, in consultation with the Underwriter, reserve the right to scale back any oversubscription, subject to their absolute discretion.
The Directors reserve the right to place any Shortfall within three months after the close of the Offer, at their absolute discretion.
The Rights Issue is partially underwritten for $1.0 million by CPS Capital Group Pty Ltd who will also act as Lead Manager.
As an Eligible Shareholder you will have the following choices:
- Take up some or all of your Entitlement.
- Take up all of your Entitlement and apply for Additional New Shares (more than your Entitlement).
- Sell part or all of your Entitlement on the ASX.
- Deal with part or all of your Entitlement other than on the ASX.
- Allow all or part of your Entitlement to lapse.
Havilah shares will be quoted on an 'ex' basis from 9 October 2017, and therefore any of the Company's shares bought on market on and after this date will not be entitled to participate in the Rights Issue.
