Last month, Amedeo said YZJOE was awarded a conditional US$1.7bn deal to build two semi-submersible drilling platforms.
Proceeds from the placing will provide working capital for MGR Resources, a trader of ferrous metals and ore. Amedeo has a 49% stake in MGR Resources.
The subscription and placing were priced at 1p each.
