Unique Nepal Laghubitta Bittiya Sanstha Limited (UNLB) is concluding the issuance of its 379,425 unit FPO (Further Public Offering) shares to the general public. The issue, which began on 11th Jestha, 2080, will close today on 17th Jestha.

Currently, the company has a paid-up capital of Rs. 11.06 crores, with 94.01% of shares (10,40,025 units) held by promoter shareholders and 5.99% (66,300 units) held by public shareholders. However, as per the requirements of the Banks and Financial Institutions Act of 2073 and the NRB (Nepal Rastra Bank), a minimum of 30% of the issued capital must be retained by public shareholders. Therefore, the company will issue 3,79,425 units of FPO shares to the general public. After the FPO, the promoter-to-public share structure will change from 94:6 to 70:30.

It is important to note that Unique Nepal Laghubitta had initially planned to issue an IPO for 2.70 lakh shares. However, following a successful merger with Ghodighoda Laghubitta, the joint operation under the name of Unique Nepal Laghubitta Bittiya Sanstha Limited commenced on 30th Poush, 2078. As Ghodighoda Laghubitta was already a publicly listed company, the merged entity opted for an FPO to adjust the shareholding ratio.

The company aims to raise Rs. 3.79 crore through this FPO. Muktinath Capital Limited has been appointed as the issue manager for the FPO. Investors can apply for a minimum of 10 units and a maximum of 1000 units. The paid-up capital of the company will increase to Rs. 14.85 crores after the issuance of the mentioned FPO shares.

According to CDSC (Central Depository System and Clearing Limited), a total of 12,85,226 applications have been received, requesting a total of 14,961,420 units. As a result, the issue is already oversubscribed by 39.4 times.
