THE Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) has approved the P1.45-billion stock rights offering of Philippine Estates Corp., proceeds of which will be used for land acquisition and for general corporate purposes.

“The exchange’s approval of the listing of the right shares is subject to the company’s compliance with all applicable requirements and post-approval conditions of the exchange,” the PSE said in a listing notice on Monday.

According to its preliminary prospectus dated Nov. 18, Philippine Estates is planning to offer 1,445,549,830 common shares for one peso apiece.

Philippine Estates is planning to conduct the rights offer from Dec. 6 to 13 for eligible shareholders and on Dec. 15 for the principal shareholder. Meanwhile, it is targeting a listing date of Dec. 24.

“Proceeds from the stock rights offer are intended to be used for the acquisition of land for the company’s pipeline of projects and the remaining balance to be used for general corporate purposes,” the company said in a disclosure on Monday.

The company has engaged Abacus Capital & Investment Corp. as the issue manager and underwriter for the transaction.
