Does ARA's delisting via a scheme of arrangement make sense?

18 Mar 2017 09:00

By David Gerald

THERE are many reasons for a company to be listed on a stock exchange. One key reason is to be able to tap public funds as and when extra capital is needed for expansion and growth. Beyond the initial public offering phase, listed companies can continue to raise public funds through various methods, such as preference shares, rights issues, retail bonds or perpetual securities.

Private placements to institutional investors are also a viable option to raise additional funds.

In addition, publicly-listed companies tend to enjoy better financing terms when seeking bank loans, as they are perceived to have higher standards of corporate governance, financial discipline and management prudence, as compared to privately-held companies.

Therefore, a growing company, which is constantly seeking funds for expansion, would be able to reap the value and benefits of being listed, as the stock exchange provides a ready source of investors as and when the company requires cash for expansion. Investors who believe in the company's growth potential will continue to participate in such cash calls, hoping that their investments will pay off in the long term, in the form of future dividends or share price appreciation.
