Subject to pricing acceptable to Hyprop, the Company proposes an equity raise of approximately ZAR600 million through the issue of new Hyprop shares.
The equity raise will be implemented through an accelerated bookbuild process (the “Bookbuild”) and proceeds raised will be used principally to repay debt. The Bookbuild is now open and the Company reserves the right to close it at any time hereafter.
Pricing and allocations will be announced as soon as practicable following closing of the Bookbuild. The equity raise will be completed under the Company’s general authority to issue shares for cash and thus only public shareholders (as defined within the JSE Listings Requirements) in South Africa may participate in the Bookbuild.
Standard Bank is acting as sole bookrunner and transaction sponsor. 8 May 2018 DISCLAIMER NOT FOR RELEASE, PUBLICATION OR DISTRIBUTION, DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, IN OR INTO THE UNITED STATES, EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AREA, CANADA, JAPAN OR ANY JURISDICTION IN WHICH IT WOULD BE UNLAWFUL TO DO SO.
