What Does a Directed Share Issue Mean?

1, what is the meaning of stock directed issuance
Directed issue of shares is a financing method for listed companies to raise funds by issuing shares to specific investors (major shareholders or institutional investors). Directed issue includes cash, non-cash assets (including equity), debt and other asset subscriptions.

(ii) Expands the investment options for investors.
Disadvantages of Directed Issue.

2, Is a directed stock issue good or bad
The issuance of targeted shares has obvious advantages for listed companies. By injecting high-quality assets and integrating upstream and downstream companies, the listed company can immediately achieve performance growth; it can also introduce strategic investors and lay a solid foundation for the long-term development of the company. Therefore, for the shareholders in circulation, the directional increase should be favorable.

3, Will the share price rise before the fixed increase?
It is not certain whether the share price will rise before the fixed increase. Before the stock is fixed, if there are funds want to suppress the fixed price, perhaps the stock will be difficult to rise. However, if the market conditions are particularly good, it will be difficult to stop the share price from rising.

The use of funds for stock fixing has a certain influence on the share price. If the funds raised by the fixing can bring revenue to the listed company, then the probability of the fixing plan being approved is greater. Although the fixed increase hurts the interests of old shareholders to a certain extent, it is beneficial to all shareholders if the fixed increase can bring greater benefits.

A fixed issue of shares is a form of issuance, also known as a non-public issue, which means that when a listed company issues additional shares, the issue is targeted at specific investors.
