“Looking ahead, we have our sights set on profitable growth that leverages new additions to our product portfolio via both expanding and more cost-effective distribution channels. Our continued diversification of products and assets, scale advantages, and further synergies from the SocietyOne acquisition will increase our resilience as we close in on the major banks with a revamped brand identity that appeals to the mass market.

Equity Raise

MONEYME is undertaking a fully underwritten placement to raise $20 million through the issue of 40 million new fully paid ordinary shares (“New Shares”) as follows:

  • An unconditional component to raise approximately $17.84 million through the issue of approximately 35.7 million New Shares (“Unconditional Placement”); and
  • A component which is conditional upon shareholder approval under ASX Listing Rule 7.1 to raise approximately $2.16 million through the issue of approximately 4.3 million New Shares (“Conditional Placement”)

The proceeds from the equity raising will be utilised for equity subordination requirements in MONEYME’s warehouse facilities to support continued loan book growth, and payment of associated upfront commissions to brokers. They will also be used to fund transaction costs and support MONEYME’s existing debt facilities.

In its normal course of business, MONEYME will continue to explore opportunities to expand new and existing debt capital facilities to support its balance sheet and loan receivables growth.

The Placement Shares will be issued at a fixed price of $0.50 per Placement Share, representing a 28.1% discount to MONEYME’s last close price of $0.695 per share on Monday, 29th August 2022.

In addition to the Placement, MONEYME is undertaking a non-underwritten offer of New Shares to certain directors of MONEYME to raise $1.2 million (“Director Offer”). The Director Offer will be conditional upon shareholder approval.

The Placement Shares together with the New Shares to be issued under the Director Offer represent approximately 17.8% of current issued capital.
