EQUITY CAPITAL MARKETS

  • private placements and associated subscription agreements
  • advising on underwriting arrangements, including acting on behalf of brokers and related party underwriters
  • preparing information memorandums for private capital raising proposals
  • liaising closely and proactively with ASX and (where appropriate) ASIC, including securing required regulatory approvals and waivers
  • security purchase plans and dividend reinvestment plans
  • employee share plans and performance right plans
  • convertible notes
  • preparing shareholders agreements
  • broker mandate letters
  • establishment of private equity funds
  • capital investments by private equity funds, including acting for private equity funds and for the target investee company and its existing shareholders
