Result of Placing
RMDL, an investment trust specialising in secured debt instruments, announces that, further to its announcements of 17 October and 6 November 2019, the Company has received commitments from investors for a total of £10.0 million (before costs and expenses) via the Placing.
Accordingly, a total of 10,000,000 new Ordinary Shares have been issued and allotted conditionally upon admission at the Placing Price of 100 pence per Ordinary Share.
Applications have been made for admission of the new Ordinary Shares to listing on the premium listing segment of the Official List and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's main market for listed securities ("Admission"). It is expected that Admission will become effective and that dealings will commence at 8.00 a.m. on 15 November 2019.
Following Admission, the Company will have 122,224,581 Ordinary Shares in issue. Therefore, the total number of voting rights of the Company will be 122,224,581 and this figure may be used by Shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest, or a change to their interest in, the Company.
