German gaming operator mybet Holding intends to raise €5m through the issue of a new convertible bond, with proceeds to be used for the expansion of the company’s marketing and technology platform.
mybet will issue a bond with conversion right in the maximum total nominal value of up to €5m. The measure is still subject to a final management board resolution, which will also specify the details of the issuance and the terms of the bond.
It will also need the consent of the company’s supervisory board later this month.
The operator said that it will use the proceeds for the expansion of its marketing and technology platform, including expanding the betting range, acquiring new customers through increased marketing activities, and for advertising of games in the wider context of the UEFA European Championship in 2016.
The convertible bond is expected to be issued in December and have a term of five years.
During the term the bondholders have the irrevocable right, within certain conversion periods, to convert debentures into no par value shares of mybet, each representing a notional share of the capital stock of €1.00. The convertible bond is to attract interest at a rate of 6.25 per cent per annum on its nominal value.
The issue amount, taking into account the present share price, will represent 100 per cent of the nominal amount and will be €100.00 per debenture. The convertible bond is to be collateralised by the pledging of shares of pferdewetten.de, which is owned by mybet.
