The UCB Investment is the mandated lead arranger and agent of the issuance of the shares.
Fair Electronics Limited, the manufacturer and one of the distributors of Samsung Electronics in Bangladesh, has recently raised Tk 2,000 million from six banks through issuing non-convertible, cumulative and redeemable preference shares to maintain sustainable business growth.
Preference share is an alternative financing instrument through which the issuer is able to fix a rate for a longer tenure as well as to provide lucrative after-tax return to the investors. Mostly blue-chip companies issue such instruments.
