XTEK (XTE) is looking to raise up to $7.7 million through a placement and entitlement offer.

The company went into a trading halt on September 30 but hadn’t disclosed how much it would raise how it would spend the funds.

XTEK is raising around $2.7 million through an institutional placement. The company will issue new shares at 26 cents per share to institutional, sophisticated and professional investors.

The issue price represents a 28.8 per cent discount to the last closing price of 36.5 cents on September 29 and a 31.7 per cent discount to the 15-day volume-weighted average price.

The company expects the placement will settle on October 8 and the new shares will commence trading on October 11.

Additionally, XTEK hopes to raise up to a further $5 million through a pro-rata non renounceable entitlement offer.

The offer, which is partially underwritten at $3 million, will follow the placement and allow eligible shareholders to apply for one new security for every 3.7 securities held.

Security holders will also have the opportunity to apply for new securities that are not fully subscribed as part of the shortfall offer.

The entitlement offer will be open from October 11 until October 25.

XTEK will use the money to develop a small vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) unmanned aerial vehicle for upcoming sales opportunities with the Australian Defence Force, develop the next XTatlas actionable intelligence software applications, expand the range of hard armour plates and helmets made using its patented XTclave process, as well as for working capital.

Company shares were down 17.8 per cent to trade at 30 cents at 3:09 pm AEDT.
