The company also included in the share sale one detachable warrant for each shares bought, which its holder can use to buy additional Cirtek shares at a price of P5.50, starting on the 12th month after the stock rights offer and until the 36th month or three years after.

Both shares under the SRO and the warrants were listed with the Philippine Stock Exchange Monday. The SRO ran July 12 to 22, 2021.

Cirtek said it plans to use the proceeds of the stock rights offer to refinance existing debt and short-term obligations of unit Cirtek Electronics Corp. and) finance the working capital of Quintel USA, Cirtek Electronics Corp. and Cirtek Advanced Technologies and Solutions Inc. — Ruelle Albert D.
