The company said total of 94.5 million shares have been conditionally placed with new and existing investors at 137.5 pence per share.

Urban Logistics also proposed to raise up to a further GBP12 million through an over-allotment option.

Urban Logistics has also declared a special dividend of 3.85 pence per share for the financial year ending March 31. The special dividend brings the total dividends issued and declared in respect of the 2020 financial year to 7.60 pence per share, the company noted.
