LONDON Oct 3 (Reuters) - Barclays said on Friday 94.63 percent of shareholders signed up to a 6 billion pound ($9.7 billion) fundraising which allows them to buy new shares at a discount.

Barclays is raising the cash from a rights issue to fill a capital shortfall. The rest of the shares will be sold before the market opens.
