Vallianz Holdings – Trading Halt Mystery Uncovered

Mystery uncovers for Vallianz’s trading halt. It announced on 17 Jun that it plans to raise S$52.2 (US$41.83) million by issuing 400 million new placement and subscription shares.
  • 230mil placement shares  - UOB Kay Hian, Tata Capital and Religare Capital Markets (SG) 
  • 170mil subscription shares - Legend Financial Limited, Golden Summit International Limited, Zymmetry Investments Ltd, ICH Partners Limited and ICH Invest & Trade Ltd.
Shares will be issued at S$0.13545 apiece - a 10% discount to the weighted ave. price of S$0.1505 a share prior to trading halt last Thursday. After deducting expenses of S$2mil, S$52.2mil will be raised. 70-80% of proceeds will be used mainly to expand its fleet, and the remainder for general working capital.

If the 400mil shares are fully subscribed for, share capital will increase from 2,123,578,789 to 2,523,578,789 shares i.e. 15.85% of the enlarged issued share capital of the Company. Refer announcement here.

Rolf’s View

This share placement exercise is in line with what was mentioned in my previous post quoted “Vallianz expansion of its fleet will come from potential for issuance of additional shares either via new events or conversion of existing share options.”

Unfortunately it comes at a discount of 10% instead of premium of market pricing. Nonetheless, I think it is a better way of raising funds compare to "rights issues to public". Raising funds through Institutional participation is more convincing than raising funds via public because it signals the confidence in the the sector outlook as well as the growth prospect of the company. 

Below are events announced recently to support Vallianz thirst for aggressive growth:
  • Dec 13: Established a US$500 million Multicurrency Islamic Trust Certificates Issuance Programme. 
  • Feb 14: -  Completed issuance of US$35.2 million RCCS and US$22.0 million options to strategic equity investors. Rawabi subscribed all options while Swiber subscribe US$12 million of the US$22.0million.
  • Apr 14: S$100 million 7.20% Fixed Rate Notes Due 2016 Issued Pursuant To The S$500 million Multicurrency Debt Issuance Programme 
  • May 14: S$60 million 7.25% Fixed Rate Notes Due 2016 Issued Pursuant To The S$500 million Multicurrency Debt Issuance Programme
  • Jun 17: Share placement raising S$52 million.
