Magnolia director Mitchell Atkins will join the real estate agency’s board as a non-executive director.

Patersons Securities and Aura Capital were the joint lead managers of the placement and rights issue.

As part of the capital raise, The Agency entered into agreements to convert $5.8 million of its debt into shares on the same terms has the rights issue.

The debt-to-equity conversion will reduce The Agency’s debt to $13.6 million.
