Back in April 2020, in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Singapore Exchange Regulation ("SGX RegCo") announced provisional measures to support issuers listed on the SGX-ST Mainboard ("Mainboard Issuers"). One such measure was to allow Mainboard Issuers to seek a general mandate for an issue of pro-rata shares and convertible securities for up to 100% of their share capital ("Enhanced Share Issue Limit"), instead of the limit of 50% prescribed in the SGX-ST Mainboard Listing Rules. The Enhanced Share Issue Limit is intended to facilitate and expedite the fund-raising process, and was to expire on 31 December 2021.
On 16 March 2021, SGX RegCo announced the extension of the availability of the Enhanced Share Issue Limit for Mainboard Issuers.
This Update provides a summary of the conditions for seeking the general mandate for the Enhanced Share Issue Limit while highlighting the updates set out in the SGX press release titled "SGX RegCo allows Mainboard issuers up to 31 Dec 2021 to seek or renew Enhanced Share Issue Limit" dated 16 March 2021.Singapore | Capital Markets, Listed Entities & M&A | 06 April 2021
