Why Does the Redeemable Convertible Notes (RCN) Programme Work?

Inherent Gap in Equity Capital Raising for Listed Companies

  • Stock Markets are not efficient for smaller or illiquid listed companies
  • Banks cannot place these stocks, or may be too small (or too large)
  • Liquidity may cause problems if placed too quickly or too large (eg toxic CBs)

RCNs Value Proposition to Smaller Listed Companies

  • Ability to do placements in a time-managed manner
  • Ability to increase free float of shares, increasing liquidity
  • Listed companies can plan their businesses according to the expected rate of placements

AOFI Value Creation
for Investors

  • Inherent Investment Bank capabilities + Trading Strategies (VWAP, Algo)
  • Velocity of Shares Traded creates multiplier effect on returns
  • Reducing Value at Risk per exposure at all times (eg toxic CBs)
