On 30 August 2021, the FSI Board announced the proposed issue of Convertible Notes. The Directors believed that the issue of FSI Notes would provide the ability to increase the overall size of the investment portfolio without diluting existing FSI Shareholders. The additional capital would be deployed in accordance with FSI’s existing investment mandate and investment process.

The Issue of the Notes was extremely successful. Brokers, Financial Advisors, Family Offices, and investors as well as many FSI shareholders and all its Directors applied for Notes. Supported by Joint Lead Managers Morgans Financial and Taylor Collison the entirety of the $20m issue was subscribed for within days of the Notes becoming available.

Issued at $2.70 per note under the ASX Code “FSIGA” the Flagship Investments Convertible Notes closed on the first day of trading at $2.87 providing Noteholders with an immediate 6.3% uplift on the value of their Notes.

On the 5th of October FSI released its September NTA at $2.81 per share.

The Board of FSI welcomes all 282 Noteholders to its share register and looks forward to welcoming new Shareholders to the register as the notes are converted at any time from the second anniversary of the issue date of the Convertible Notes until 17 September 2026.
