The raising was conducted by Petra Capital and Canaccord Genuity, allowing the company to acquire 29 childcare and education centres which will increase annual earnings by over $10 million. The senior unsecured note offering was oversubscribed and raised $A70 million for the company. The Australian childcare sector has been popular with corporate activity of late.
