With over 900 listings, Bursa Malaysia is emerging as one of the largest stock exchanges in Southeast Asia. However, many public companies still find it difficult to raise capital from local investors or financial institutions. Fortunately, Chasen Nevett is here to help public companies obtain the financing they require.
Public companies have two primary options of raising equity capital: public or private offerings. Public offerings, such as rights issues, are often a very tedious process for issuers. They involve filing a prospectus with Bursa Malaysia, convincing shareholders to subscribe to the rights, and incurring expensive legal fees. All this amounts to a slower implementation time while getting an inferior deal for the public company. Issuing bonds can be an even more tedious process than a public equity offering. Bonds will most likely need to be rated by a credit rating agency in order to attract investors. Chasen Nevett believes that the size of a company is not an indication of creditworthiness, which is contrary to popular opinion.
Also, the bonds will be secured by assets of the public company and the company will be bound by covenants that are specified in the financing agreement. Put simply, public debt or equity offerings are more difficult for small- to mid-capitalization public companies to successfully implement. So, is there a better alternative?
