Required proceeds            \$

How many shares need to be sold? (Do not round intermediate calculations and enter your answer in shares, not millions of shares, e.g., 1,234,567. Round your answer to the nearest whole number, e.g., 32.)

Number of shares offered

 Amount to be raised = 65800000 Offer price per share = \$58 Underwriting charges = 8% or 0.08 Issue costs = 458000 (a) Net proceeds required to cover Underwriting spread and Expenses = (Amount raised + issue cost)/ (1-underwriters spread) (65800000+458000) / (1-0.80) 72019565.22 So amount required is \$72,019,566 (b) Number of shares offered = Required proceeds/Issue price per share 72,019,566/58 1,241,716.7 So number of shares offered are 1241717
