SP AusNet, the Australian electricity distributor 51 per cent owned by Singapore Power, will raise A$434 million (S$547.2 million) in a share offer to existing investors to help fund expansion, Bloomberg reported.
Separately, the company also said that the Supreme Court of Victoria has formally approved the compensation offered in a bushfire class action in Australia.
As for the share offer, Bloomberg reported that SP AusNet will offer investors three shares for every 20 that they hold at A$1 apiece. That is an 11 per cent discount to yesterday's closing price of A$1.125.
SingPower will take its 51 per cent entitlement with the balance to be underwritten by Macquarie Group and UBS AG.
