January 24, 2018
The Directors of BuildingIQ, Inc. (ASX: BIQ) are pleased to advise that the partially underwritten non-renounceable Entitlement Offer, announced on 15 December 2017 to raise approximately $3.8 million, closed on Friday, 19 January 2018 significantly oversubscribed.
The non-renounceable entitlement offer forms part of a capital raising of $6.5m which will be used to fund the Company's growing sales pipeline, services development and to provide additional working capital.
"We are delighted with the overwhelming support for the capital raise," BuildingIQ's President & CEO, Michael Nark said. "The Company received substantial oversubscriptions for both the entitlement offer to existing holders and the institutional placement to new investors, which meant both had to be scaled back. Also, a significant majority of securityholders voted in favour of the raise. It is great to see such strong support for BuildingIQ."
The Company gives notice that it received valid applications under the Offer for 118,284,726 New CDIs amounting to $5,322,813. This comprised applications for:

Normal trading for New CDIs will commence on Monday, 29 January 2018 and holding statements in respect of New CDIs are expected to be despatched on Tuesday, 30 January 2018.
