Cadmus Confirms Funding Strategy
Cadmus Confirms Funding Strategy For International Market
Payment solutions company, Cadmus Technology Limited (NZSE: CTL), today announced that it had made a private placement of 12.5 million ordinary shares at $0.08 each, raising a total of $1 million, excluding costs of the placement.
The placement organised by FAR Financial Services Ltd and NZSE member brokers is to habitual and professional investors and is not subject to shareholder approval. It complements the issue of First Secured Notes by Cadmus Developments Limited, a subsidiary of the company, approved by shareholders at a special meeting held last week.
“As part of Cadmus’ focus on the international
market, we need to ensure that the company continues to
review and undertake strategies to fund this growth,” said
Cadmus Managing Director, Ian Bailey. “The proceeds of this
placement, together with funds from the issue of First
Secured Notes by our subsidiary, will be used primarily for
product development and funding of payment solution product
export opportunities. Specific items include the development
of payment terminal housings and marketing costs associated
with the company’s expanding international sales
“Securing this additional funding to serve our rapidly growing base of international customers provides us with the ability to accelerate expansion into target markets within the Asia Pacific region,” adds Mr Bailey. “Significantly, merchants, banks and other corporates in the Asia Pacific region are recognising the additional functionality and advanced capabilities our payment solutions provide.”
Most recently Cadmus announced that it has signed an exclusive heads of agreement to supply Cadmus EFTPOS terminals and pinpads to Bartercard Australia Pty Ltd (Bartercard Australia). This follows an order last year for 1,000 of its new Cadmus AC4500G terminals from Australian E-commerce company, On Q Business Systems Pty Ltd (November ‘01) and a deal with PaySys International (Malaysia) Ltd to supply over 1,000 Cadmus credit card and EFTPOS terminals (June ‘01).
