Helios Towers PLC said Tuesday that it intends to raise gross proceeds of around $100 million through a share placing and retail offer to help fund tower-asset acquisitions.

The London-listed telecommunications-infrastructure company said its wholly owned subsidiary HTA Group is also launching a tap issuance of around $50 million of its senior unsecured guaranteed convertible bonds due 2027.

The total capital raise is intended to reach gross proceeds of around $150 million.

"The company intends to use the net proceeds of the capital raise to further strengthen its balance sheet to fund the inorganic element of the group's growth strategy, targeting tower assets in new and existing markets," it added.
