$4m placing, FY23E guidance reiterated
Aferian has successfully concluded the placing of 26m new ordinary shares at a price of 12p/share, raising $4.0m before expenses. The proceeds are to be used for general working capital purposes, replacing the need for further drawdown of the group’s shareholder loan from Kestrel Partners. Aferian has also confirmed that trading remains in line with its update from 28 June, and management has reiterated FY23E guidance. Overall, we view these announcements as positive for the group and investor sentiment. Affirmation of Aferian’s materially improved financial position should be well-received by the investment community.
