Hong Kong-based blockchain company Diginex will raise $38.6 million through the sale of 2.57 million shares to develop its cryptocurrency product line, according to a press release.
Diginex has entered into a definitive agreement with a number of institutional investors for their participation in the private placement. The company plans to sell 2,571,699 shares and warrants for a similar number of shares at $15 and an exercise price of $18.75 in three years.

If the terms of the offer are met, the deal will close on 13 January.

In January, cryptocurrency exchange EQUOS, operated by Diginex, added a perpetual bitcoin contract to its listing.

The EQUOS ecosystem includes a regulated asset manager, cold and combined custodial solutions, capital markets and securitisation advisory services, and a trading platform.

As a reminder, at the end of 2020, Diginex became the first cryptocurrency exchange operator to have its shares added to the Nasdaq stock exchange listing.
