Kit Digital Inc. (KITD), an online video technologies provider, canceled a sale of new shares in Prague, while keeping their plan to start trading of existing shares there after it raised $30.1 million in a U.S. listing yesterday.
The company will only start a dual listing on the Prague Stock Exchange on Jan. 25 and will not offer an issue of new primary shares, the company said in a statement today. Patria Finance AS, a Czech brokerage owned by KBC Groep NV, will be the issue’s market maker, it said.
The company, which is already listed on Nasdaq, announced yesterday it wanted to sell between 3.25 million and 5.25 million shares in Prague and in the U.S. to fund future expansion. The sale in Prague was to include a dual listing of existing U.S. shares and new primary shares, Kit Digital said.
Kit Digital has “opted not to pursue an issue of new primary shares” after a “successful $30.1 million U.S. offering” of “3 million shares” helped the company meet its objectives of “financing future acquisitions” and “fortifying our balance sheet,” it said.
Kit Digital will be the first company to join the Prague bourse since the listing of New World Resources NV, the largest Czech coking coal producer, in 2008.
Kit Digital said it may still sell a “small offering” of shares or issue debt at a later date to help eliminate its warrants.
