The board of directors of Generation Next Fashions has intended to issue non-convertible redeemable subordinated bond of Tk 2.0 billion for 7 years for capital investment, said an official disclosure posted on DSE Sunday.
The textile company will issue bond for business expansion, strengthening the production facilities and setting up the existing high cost debt, according to the disclosure. However, the bond issue is subject to the approval of Bangladesh Securities & Exchange Commission (BSEC), shareholders in the 13th annual general meeting (AGM) and other regulatory authorities.
The company has also informed that due to unavoidable circumstances the board of directors has decided to change the date of their 13th AGM from December 23, 2017 to December 17, 2017 at 11:00am.
