WARSAW Dec 18 Slovenian household appliance
maker Gorenje said on Wednesday it raised nearly 17
million euros from a secondary public offer on the Warsaw
bourse, well below the 45 million euros it was seeking to raise.
The company said it had raised a total of 27 million euros,
but 10 million euros of that was raised via a conversion of debt
into shares in August with Japan's Panasonic Corp, and so was
not part of the Warsaw offer.
The company, already listed in Slovenia, plans to debut on
the Warsaw bourse at the end of this year.
Initially Gorenje said it was offering 10.44 million new
shares which - if all were sold - would constitute 36 percent of
the company's increased capital.
