GUD Holdings (GUD) has successfully raised $55 million through a placement to institutional investors.

Yesterday, the ASX 200-listed stock entered a trading halt ahead of the raise which is funding the acquisition of AMA Group's ACAD business for $70 million.

A total of 4.9 million new fully paid GUD shares have been issued at an issue price of $11.25 per new security. This represents a 4.9 per cent discount to GUD's last traded share price on Wednesday, November 18.

The issue price also represents a premium to the fully underwritten floor price of $10.75 per new security that was announced yesterday.

"We are delighted with the very strong support from existing shareholders and pleased to welcome new high-quality institutional investors onto the register. The successful completion of the institutional placement demonstrates the support from the market for our growth strategy," Managing Director and CEO Graeme Whickman said.

The new securities are expected to settle on Tuesday, November 24 and will be allocated and trade normally on the following day.

Additionally, GUD is launching a share purchase plan (SPP) which will give eligible existing shareholders the opportunity to acquire new securities in the company. To do so, they'll be able to subscribe for up to $30,000 worth of new securities.

Through the SPP, GUD is hoping to raise approximately $15 million. The SPP offer period will be open from Wednesday, November 25 and will close on Tuesday, December 15.

At market close, GUD was trading a slight 0.17 per cent higher for $11.85.
