TheScore prepares to issue 5,000,000 Class A Shares for its US public offering. The company will list the shares on NASDAQ with the “SCR” ticker.
TheScore to Issue 5m Class A Shares as It Goes Public
Score Media and Gaming Inc. announced on Monday it is launching a public offering of Class A Subordinate Voting Shares otherwise known as Class A Shares. The public offering applies to both the United States and Canada and is part of the company’s public offering in the United States.
In light of its public offering, theScore has already filed an application requesting for the company’s Class A Shares to be introduced to NASDAQ, the NASDAQ Global Select Market, with “SCR” ticker.
At the same time, trading at the Toronto Stock Exchange for the Class A Shares will continue under the same ticket. A total of 5,000,000 Class A Shares will be up for grabs with Morgan Stanley, Credit Suisse, Canaccord Genuity and Macquarie Capital managing the books.
The price of each share will be determined once an agreement with the underwriters has been struck. TheScore will allow the underwriters to have an over-allotment option applicable for 30 days from the end date of the public offering, should interest outstrip initial forecasts. A total of 15% additional shares could be issued under this option.
TheScore will then use proceeds for general corporate purposes, focusing on growth in both the United States and Canada and spearheading the multi-jurisdictional deployment of its theScore Bet betting brand.
The latest move comes on the tail of a stellar Q1 2021 for the company with gaming handle growing by 553% and reaching $55.8 million. TheScore has been consolidating its footprint in the United States through most recently breaking ground in Iowa with Penn National Gaming.
