The existing shareholders will receive 1.25 million of the new shares in MyBucks for their debt to equity swap. The agreement with the existing shareholders is subject to regulatory and shareholder approval. The existing shareholders expect to receive such approvals in Q1/2019 latest.
MyBucks will use the total proceeds from the private placement to increase the volume of the loan book of some of its leading revenue-generating subsidiaries and to drive further business growth. During the 2017 and 2018 period, MyBucks has focused on completing various growth initiatives in order to position the Group for the next phase of its growth.
