The new shares will go to the sellers of two businesses, Calculus and Parsec, who were both recently acquired by Anite The inflated price paid by the two businesses will save Anite’s existing shareholders from suffering a dilution in their shares.
Talks took place last night between Anite and several of its recently acquired businesses, with the real possibility that one of them could have taken control of the company, although this seems to have been avoided through the new deal.
