If all the placing shares are issued, they will represent 8.1% of the company's enlarged issued share capital.
The placing is conditional upon the passing of certain resolutions by shareholders of the company at a general meeting scheduled for January 14 2013.
The company reported that it has seen growth in sales revenues in the period to November 2012 and a four-fold increase in volumes during the same period in each case as compared to 2011.
