Institutional investors subscribed for only $US59m worth of shares in Yancoal Australia’s $US1.3bn entitlement offer, which is part of its $US2.35bn ($A3bn) capital raising to finance the acquisition of Rio Tinto’s New South Wales assets. The response to the retail component of the share offer was also subdued, with existing shareholders applying to buy just $US4m worth of shares. As a result, parent company Yanzhou Coal and the bookbuild’s underwriters will be required to meet the significant shortfall.
