JWS advises on $15m offer

JWS advises on $15m offer

Johnson Winter & Slattery has advised Oceania Capital Partners Limited on its renounceable, pro-rata entitlement offer.

Firm: Johnson Winter & Slattery (Oceania Capital Partners Limited)

Deal: Oceania Capital Partners Limited’s (OCP) renounceable, pro-rata entitlement offer

Area: Financial services

Value: $14.9 million

Key players: JWS partners Damian Reichel and Tim Bowley led the transaction

Deal significance: OCP (which was formerly known as Allco Equity Partners Limited) undertook a significant restructuring in late 2011 and recommenced investment activities at the beginning of this year. The Entitlement Offer will raise additional capital to enable OCP to consider a broader range of investment opportunities and better position it to execute those opportunities. OCP’s 67.7 per cent shareholder HCI (a subsidiary of major South African investment house Hosken Consolidated Investments) has confirmed its present intention to take up in full its pro rata entitlement (although it has reserved its right not to do so). The entitlement offer is also being partially underwritten (up to $3m) by three of OCP’s directors. "The entitlement offer is one of only a handful of renounceable entitlement offers in excess of $10 million which have been announced this financial year,” said Bowley.
