KUALA LUMPUR: Fintec Global Bhd has received applications for 1.79 billion rights shares, surpassing the 1.43 billion units available for subscription under its corporate exercise.
In an announcement to Bursa Malaysia on Friday, it said this represented an over-subscription rate of 24.99%.
Fintec will raise about RM114mil from this corporate exercise, where about RM65mil will be used to construct a factory in Chemor, Perak for its glove business venture.

These lines have the capacity to generate an estimated maximum production output of 3.3 billion pieces of gloves per annum.
Its rights issue exercise involved up to 1.97 billion shares with up to 1.57 billion free detachable warrants.
