The stock market regulator has cancelled an application of Ratanpur Steel Re-Rolling Mills (RSRM) Ltd, seeking to issue the right shares.
The company wanted to collect Tk100 crore from the share market by issuing the right shares to invest in modernising its factory and repaying loans.
The Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission (BSEC) has issued letters in this regard on Thursday.
The principal activities of the company are to manufacture and sell MS bars of various grades made from MS billets.
A BSEC official said the company did not submit documents on the right shares' offer with the latest accounts within the stipulated time frame.
RSRM took time twice but failed to comply with the BSEC instructions, the official added.
Tahid Ahmed Chowdhury, managing director of EBL Investment Ltd and the issue manager of RSRM, said the company took time till 31 October 2020 for submitting the documents to the commission.
"But the company is not eager to submit the documents because it will not get a premium perhaps if the right shares are approved by the commission."
The company wanted to issue two right shares against every three shares of the firm.
The price of every right share would be Tk10. With a premium of Tk5, the total price of every right share would be Tk15.
Earlier, the company had decided to issue every right share at Tk20 with a Tk10 premium, but this decision was revoked.
RSRM's paid-up capital is Tk101.19 crore and the number of shares is 10.12 crore. The company wanted to issue 6.75 crore more right shares.
On Thursday, the price of each share of the company was Tk22.90.
After the July-September quarter of 2020-21 financial year, loss per share of the company was Tk1.06 and net asset value (NAV) per share Tk48.63.
On 30 June 2020, the company gave a 10% cash dividend to its shareholders.
The company's net profit was Tk10.63 crore and earnings per share were Tk1.05.
Its revenue was Tk323.90 crore, which was Tk680.87 crore in the previous year.
The entrepreneurs and the directors hold 47.03% shares of the company. Institutional investors hold 19.88% and general investors 33.09% of the shares.
