Parkson Retail Asia is to buy 41.8% stake for Rs 1.424 billion triggering mandatory offer; Rights issue of 1 for 1 to follow

ODEL PLC last week announced a significant change of ownership, with Parkson Retail Asia Limited (PRAL.SI) agreeing to purchase a 41.82 % stake in the company for Rs 1.424 billion.

An announcement to the Colombo Stock Exchange(CSE) said the transaction would be followed by a mandatory offer to minority shareholders and a 1 for 1 Rights Issue that will raise Rs 2.899 billion in capital for expansion of the 22 year old fashion retail brand.

Parkson has entered into a Share Sale and Purchase Agreement with the controlling shareholders of ODEL, the company’s founder and CEO Otara Gunawardene and her brothers Ajit and Ruchi Gunawardene to acquire 60,625,000 shares of ODEL, representing 27.88 %, 13.6 % and 0.34 % respectively of the issued share capital of the company at Rs 23.50 per share, the announcement said.

Following the acquisition, Ms Gunawardene will retain a 27.88 % stake in ODEL PLC and will continue to be the company’s CEO, a spokesman for ODEL disclosed.

The directors of ODEL PLC have resolved, subject to regulatory and shareholder approval, to undertake a Rights Issue of One (1) ordinary share for every one (1) ordinary share held at a price of Rs 20/- per share after the completion of the mandatory offer. The total number of shares to be issued is 144,950,000 ordinary shares, doubling the number of shares in issue post rights to 289,900,000 ordinary shares. Parkson and Otara Gunawardene, Ajit Gunawardene and Ruchi Gunawardene have committed to take up their full entitlement of shares in the Rights Issue.

The principal shareholders have also undertaken not to accept the mandatory offer that will be triggered by the transaction.

The proceeds of the Rights Issue amounting to Rs 2.899 billion are to be utilised in the company’s future investments in retail spaces.

In a statement to media, Ms Gunawardene said: “The acquisition by Parkson Retail of a significant ownership in ODEL marks a new chapter in the evolution of the company. Being part of a 22-year journey from a business I started from the boot of my car to becoming part of an international retail company is a great privilege. I am also happy to play a role in an infusion of foreign direct investment to Sri Lanka, while raising capital for the company’s growth.”

“For our customers, employees and shareholders, this development represents exciting new prospects as the ODEL brand will have more opportunities to maximize its potential and together with Parkson to explore new avenues to add value to the company.”

Listed on the Main Board of the Singapore Exchange in November 2011, Parkson Retail Asia Limited is a Southeast Asia-based department store operator with an extensive network of 54 department stores, 38 in Malaysia, eight in Vietnam and eight in Indonesia, an aggregate of approximately 554,000 square metres of retail space.

In July 2010, ODEL became the first fashion retail business to be listed on the CSE with an IPO of 16.7 million shares, an 11.52 % stake in its equity.

Compared to other brands, ODEL is selling to a niche market, high price, select items. No compromise. (Like Hameedias but which is very limited to suits) While others are selling loads, any quality, any price.

Anybody have memories buying from her boot?

I have visited Parkson Malaysia. ODEL is much more classier in merchandising its goods, and quality of its products.

Only problem with ODEL was its expansion startegy. i have highlighted this in detail from the day it came on for IPO in this forum
