Yangzijiang falls after announcing warrants issue plan
SINGAPORE Jan 16 (Reuters) - Shares in Yangzijiang Shipbuilding (Holdings) Ltd fell 7.7 percent to a one-week low on Wednesday on concerns over the potential dilution of its stock after it announced plans to issue S$20 million ($16.32 million) worth of warrants.
By 0155 GMT, Yangzijiang shares were at S$1.015, with 48.9 million shares traded, 1.2 times its average daily volume over the last five sessions.
Yangzijiang said it plans to sell 330 million warrants at S$0.0605 a piece, and each will carry the right to subscribe to one new share at 7.617 yuan ($1.23).
"There is some uncertainty over why the company is raising funds. It's not a large amount they are getting and the exercise price of the warrant is also quite high considering their share price today," said a local trader.
