In a filing to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, the company named three subscribers for the subscription shares, which will total 225,231,388 shares comprising 28.61% of Ourgame’s issued shared capital. They include Total Victory Global Limited, a company owned by executive directors of Ourgame named as Mr Yang and Mr Ng, which will be issued 89,189,189 shares worth 11.33% of issued shared capital. Noumena Innovations (BVI) Ltd will be issued 71,351,351 shares worth 9.07% with Irena Group Co Ltd to be issued 64,690,848 worth 8.22%.

The breakdown of expenditure of the raised funds will include 30% to be used to further develop its eSports business, 30% to acquire and develop China regional card and board games platforms to enlarge the group’s China national games platform, 15% to further develop the World Poker Tour including its WPT online games platform and 15% to revamp and update the group’s China mobile product portfolio. The remaining 10% will be used to replenish Ourgame’s working capital.

In its filing, Ourgame said the offering represents “a good opportunity to (i) raise a substantial amount of additional funds for the company; (ii) improve the financial positions and liquidity of the group; and (iii) provide the company with the financial flexibility necessary for the group’s business development and expansion.

Net proceeds are expected to be HK$416.7 million with a net subscription price per subscription share of HK$1.85.
