Morristown, NJ February 26, 2019 – Majesco (NASDAQ: MJCO), a global provider of cloud insurance software solutions for insurance business transformation, today announced the completion of its previously announced rights offering pursuant to which 6,123,463 shares of Majesco’s common stock will be issued, resulting in gross proceeds to Majesco of approximately $43.5 million. Pursuant to the rights offering, Majesco issued one right for each share of common stock to shareholders of record as of February 5, 2019. Holders of the rights were entitled to purchase shares of common stock by submitting six rights and $7.10 for each share to be purchased. The rights offering expired at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on February 25, 2019.
Preliminary results indicate that Majesco received total subscriptions of approximately $45.4 million (including over-subscription requests). Approximately 79% of the shares to be issued were subscribed for in the basic subscription. The over-subscription requests exceeded the over-subscription shares available. As a result, the available over-subscription shares will be allocated pro rata among those fully exercising record date shareholders based on the number of rights originally issued to them by Majesco. Shareholders that exercised their over-subscription rights should expect to be allocated approximately 82.6% of the shares which they oversubscribed for. The new shares of common stock will be issued on or about February 28, 2019.
“I want to thank all of my fellow shareholders who subscribed to our rights offering for their continuing support, confidence, and above all, trust in Majesco,” says Majesco CEO Adam Elster. “We raised the entire amount of the offering and shareholders oversubscribed above 100%. I am extremely encouraged by the strong demand for shares and validation of the growing success of our cloud strategy and the solutions to help insurers adapt to a new era. We will use the capital we’ve raised to pay off our debt and make further investments in Majesco’s next-generation software to deliver speed to value for our customers as we help them build the future of their business – and the future of insurance.”
