16 July 2010
Allens Arthur Robinson (Allens) is acting for Riversdale Mining Limited (Riversdale) on a $337 million capital raising.
The capital being raised will facilitate the accelerated development of stages two and three of the premium coking and thermal coal Benga Coal Project, based in the Tete Province, Mozambique.
The transaction – at a fixed offer price of $9.40 per share – comprises a $102 million fully underwritten institutional placement and a 1-for-8 fully underwritten accelerated non-renounceable pro-rata entitlement offer to all eligible shareholders.
The entitlement offer involves an institutional component of approximately $165 million and a retail component of approximately $70 million.
Allens, led by Partner and Co-Head of Equity Capital Markets Stuart McCulloch, advised Riversdale on all aspects of the capital raising.
'This capital raising is strategically very important and Riversdale's strengthened balance sheet and coal resources should position it to develop into a leading and internationally competitive coal producer,' said Mr McCulloch.
'We were pleased to work with Riversdale, drawing upon our experience in significant capital raisings such as this, and our experience in the resources sector.'
