ASX-listed Nufarm announces $303 million entitlement offer

Capital Markets, Corporate and M&A
Stock market numbers and city light reflection
Arnold Bloch Leibler has recently acted for Nufarm Limited on its $303 million equity raising to strengthen the company’s balance sheet and provide capital for future projects and acquisition opportunities.

The Corporate and M&A team led by Partner Jonathan Wenig advised on all legal aspects of the equity raising. The team also recently advised Nufarm on its US$475 million debt raising.

In Nufarm’s ASX announcement, the company stated the entitlement offer will help to ensure Nufarm remains in a strong position and supports the continuation of the company’s growth strategy in light of recent market uncertainty. 

Greg Hunt, Managing Director and CEO of Nufarm, commented: “A combination of severe drought conditions in Australia and later than normal selling seasons in other major markets resulted in higher levels of working capital and debt at the end of our 2018 financial year…it is appropriate that we take measures to de-risk the balance sheet in the short term.” 

Nufarm Limited is one of the world's leading crop protection and specialist seeds companies. It produces products to help farmers protect their crops against damage caused by weeds, pests and disease.

ABL’s involvement in the deal was also covered by Australasian Lawyer.

Team: Jonathan Wenig (Partner), Jeremy Lanzer (Partner), Emma Ferguson (Lawyer), Jessica Spring (Lawyer), Luke Jedynak (Lawyer), Simone Gould (Lawyer), Anna Sandiford (Lawyer), Anthony Hadjiantoniou (Law Graduate), Michelle Ainsworth (Law Graduate) and Noah Lipshut (Paralegal).
