Capital Raising Initiative:

As previously announced CBD is seeking to raise circa $9 million of new capital in conjunction with the Merger (“Capital Raise”).


Details of the structure of the proposed capital raising initiative were released to the market on 4 April 2023. In that announcement CBD advised that third party investors, including for this purpose certain CBD shareholders or Eqalis shareholders (together “Firm Investors”) were being approached to secure binding commitments to participate in the Capital Raise, subject to sufficient CBD shares being available for subscription.


The CBD Board is pleased to advise that binding commitments to participate in the Capital Raise for amounts of $3.3 million in aggregate have been received from Firm Investors to date, and the Board anticipates that further commitments will be received from additional third parties in the forthcoming weeks. CBD will provide updates as additional firm commitments are secured.


CBD Chair, Tony Ho says, “Securing these firm commitments so early in the Capital Raise and Merger process is an excellent outcome for both CBD and Eqalis, and confirms the support that investors have for the proposed Merger with Eqalis”.


CBD will continue to provide any material updates regarding the progress of the Merger as they come to hand.
