RESOURCE GENERATION LIMITED ? ASX: RES
NON RENOUNCEABLE ENTITLEMENT OFFER
On 28 June 2013, Resource Generation Limited (Resource Generation) announced a capital
raising of $A62.6 million. A 1 for 1 pro rata non-renounceable entitlement offer (Entitlement
Offer) is being made to eligible shareholders at $A0.22 per share.
The Entitlement Offer is not underwritten. However, commitments have been received from
three independent parties who are willing to take up to approximately 80% of the issue or any
available shortfall. The three parties are:
- Barsington Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Noble Group Limited (an existing
- Valu Investments Pte. Ltd, a special purpose vehicle which will be jointly owned by Mr
Jaimin Vyas, who is an entrepreneur, investor and project developer in the infrastructure
sector, and IL&FS Energy Development Company Limited (?IEDCL?) , an Indian
company which specialises in the energy infrastructure space; and
- Altius Investment Holdings (Proprietary) Limited, a South African black economically
empowered investment company focused on the food, mining and water sectors and
also representing other large institutional investors.
BBY Limited is acting as broker to the issue. The directors of the Company reserve the right to
place the shortfall shares at their discretion, which will include ensuring no party obtains a
position of control.
The funds raised via the Offer, together with Resource Generation's existing cash reserves and
funds from the Rail Link loan (announced on 28 June 2013), will be utilised to provide funding
primarily for the commencement of major constructions works for Stage 1 production of the
Boikarabelo mine in the Waterberg region of South Africa; and also to provide funding for
working capital requirements of Resource Generation.
Should the Entitlement Offer not achieve full subscription or take up of the shortfall, the
Company will prioritise the expenditure in areas which provide maximum leverage in de-risking
completion. For example, expenditure on the CHPP would be deferred on the basis that we are
presently considering leveraged finance for all or part of the CHPP.
Resource Generation will not issue a prospectus for the Entitlement Offer as the offer will be
made under provisions of the Corporations Act 2001 which allow entitlement offers to be made
without a prospectus. Instead, an Offer Booklet detailing the non-renounceable entitlement
offer will be sent to eligible shareholders and be available on Resource Generation's website at
www.resgen.com.au and at www.asx.com.au.
The Entitlement Offer entitlement is for eligible Resource Generation shareholders on the share
register as at 7.00pm (AEDT) on 8 July 2013 (Record Date) with registered addresses in
Australia, New Zealand, the European Economic Area, Hong Kong, India, PNG, Singapore,
South Africa, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Shareholders with registered addresses
outside these countries are not eligible to participate in the Entitlement Offer. However, the
Company may (at its absolute discretion) extend the Offer to certain institutional shareholders
(as at the Record Date) in foreign jurisdictions subject to compliance with applicable laws.
Entitlements to New Shares pursuant to the Retail Entitlement Offer are non-renounceable and
accordingly will not be traded on the ASX. Under the Entitlement Offer, eligible shareholders
can choose whether or not to take up all or part of their entitlement or otherwise have their
equity interests diluted.
The New Shares will rank equally with the existing ordinary shares from the date of allotment.
The current number of ordinary shares on issue in Resource Generation is 284,698,002. Under
