Payment solutions company, Cadmus Technology Limited (NZX: CTL) today announced that CET Technologies Pte Ltd (CET) has advised the Cadmus board that it has taken up its option to maintain 9.9 percent of the issued capital of CTL. The terms of the 3-year option were approved at a meeting of Cadmus shareholders on 2nd October 2003. Cadmus will issue 6,263,514 new shares in Cadmus Technology Limited for a consideration of NZ$ 1.13 million. The new shares will be issued in line with the formula contained in the option agreement.

Under that agreement, CET is entitled to maintain its current level of investment in Cadmus through any subsequent capital raising activities for a period of 3 years. The new shares will see CET’s holding return to 9.9 percent.

“We’re delighted that CET continues its commitment to Cadmus,” says Ian Bailey, Cadmus Managing Director. “We see this as an endorsement of our broad strategy and confidence in our ability to design, manufacture and drive sales of innovative technologies within international and domestic markets.”

CET is represented on the Cadmus Board by its Chief Executive Officer, Lau Thiam Beng.
