PETALING JAYA: Shareholders of companies that have conducted large share issuances through private placements should conduct an assessment on the benefit those shares have brought to their company.
With the leeway for companies to issue more than 10% of their shares in a placement ending at the end of this year, experts said companies will have to be accountable for the value that these placements have brought to the firm.
Given that the market situation appears under control, Minority Shareholders Watch Group chief executive officer Devanesan Evanson said there is justification for a scale back of the relaxation.
With huge amounts of shares being issued via placements primarily, there have been questions over the benefit that this has brought to companies issuing those shares.
A former Chief Investment Officer and Starbiz columnist Pankaj C. Kumar said that once the window closes, shareholders will need to start scrutinising these fundraising exercises.A former Chief Investment Officer and Starbiz columnist Pankaj C.

“Once it is over, I think it will come back to normal. Shareholders will have more say over matters of raising funds and whether it is for a genuine purpose because the flexibility for companies won’t be there anymore.
“Companies will have to be genuine in their fundraising. There will be little room for them to take advantage to expand their balance sheet through increased share issuances,” said Pankaj.
Devanesan said that with placements, funds can be raised quickly and cheaply for company purposes.
A rights issue takes time and the cost can be high. Likewise, banks have become very prudent with their loans, so accessing a loan can be difficult and even then, the interest cost can be high.
“Also, some placees add value to the company as they have a special expertise or a competitive advantage. Thus, it is always an added advantage if the placee can provide such special expertise or a competitive advantage to the company.
“It all depends on how productively the placement funds are used – if used productively, the enhanced shareholder value outweighs the dilution effect,” said Devanesan.
The flexibilities accorded to listed companies by Bursa Malaysia to expedite fundraising have helped many raise the capital needed to capture new opportunities over the past year.
