Meanwhile, approximately $200.8m is expected to come from the preferential offering. 455.31 million preferential offering units will be priced at $0.44 per unit.

The preferential offering will open on 27 March 2019 at 9 a.m.

The new units are expected to be equivalent to a 29.4% shareholding stake in KIT. These will finance the company’s acquisition of Australian chemical firm Ixom Holdings.

Credit Suisse Singapore, DBS, HSBC Singapore, and UOB have been appointed as the joint lead managers, bookrunners, and underwriters.
