Magseis Wraps Up $39M Private Placement

Ocean bottom seismic specialist Magseis has privately raised NOK 300 million ($39 million) through the application and conditional allocation of new shares.

The net proceeds from the private placement will be used to finance the company’s current growth plans and for general corporate purposes.

“The board is of the opinion that the private placement will allow for the company to raise capital more quickly and, at a lower discount compared to a rights issue. Furthermore, the board is of the opinion that, in the current market, a private placement has a larger possibility of success compared to a rights issue,” Magseis said in a statement.
