Thursday, 08 October 2020

Vital has successfully completed the $125m placement of new units (the Placement), which forms part of the $150m capital raising announced on 7 October 2020 (the Offer).

The Placement was underwritten at a fixed price of $2.80 per unit, representing a 6.0% discount to the closing price of $2.98 on 6 October 2020. Existing unitholders that participated in the Placement were given priority to obtain a pro rata allocation.

“We are delighted with the outcome of the placement, which was well supported by existing institutional unitholders and broker firm clients. The capital raising provides Vital with the funding to pursue growth opportunities, particularly the approximately $100m of new brownfield developments."

Settlement and allotment of the new units issued under the Placement is expected to occur on 13 October 2020.

Forsyth Barr Group Limited and Goldman Sachs New Zealand Limited acted as underwriters of the Placement.
