MyBucks S.A. concludes significant debt recapitalization
Luxembourg, November 29, 2019 – Frankfurt-listed Digital African Banking Group MyBucks S.A. (“MyBucks” or the “Group”) today announced that it has concluded the administrative processes with regards to the debt recapitalization (the “Debt Recapitalization”) as initially announced on 26 March 2019 and successfully issued 63,326,378 shares increasing the total shares outstanding to 76,641,991.
The Debt Recapitalization has ensured that the negative equity position of c. EUR45m as of 30 June 2019 as announced on 13 November 2019 is remedied and sees MyBucks Group (Company and its subsidiaries) return to positive equity.
MyBucks continues discussions with other stakeholders to increase its equity position further. Subsequent to the completion of the Debt Recapitalization, MyBucks intends to engage on the proposed rights offer in 2020 at a ratio of at least 5 new shares per every 1 share as owned before the issuance on 28 November 2019 to compensate shareholders for the dilutive effect of the recapitalisation.
