Capita In The Shit

The FT reports that Capita has launched a £701m fundraising after announcing a £513m loss for last year, as its tries to recover from a series of reputation-damaging contract bungles and repair its balance sheet.

Capita, which provides a range of public services from collecting the BBC licence fee to recruiting for the British army, is issuing 1m new shares at 70p each — a 34 per cent discount to the theoretical price that the shares should trade at after the rights issue.

The three-for-two rights issue, which will raise £662m after fees to advisers, will be used to reduce Capita’s £1.2bn net debt, fund the company’s restructuring and invest in new technology.
