The placement had a price range of $21.75 to $23.00 depending on demand and has been set at $23.00 due to strong demand. If the placement was fully subscribed, which it clearly will be, three founders will part with 2.5 million shares, which will be allocated to two US cornerstone investors, Tiger Management and Woodson Capital. A share purchase plan (SPP) will follow the placement and sell-down to raise an additional $30 million meaning the company will raise gross proceeds of $330 million. The capital injection is to fund growth in the US, the UK launch and continued investment in Australia and New Zealand.
