HCMC – Transimex Corporation, which trades its TMS shares on the Hochiminh Stock Exchange, will issue more than 15.8 million bonus shares to raise its charter capital by nearly VND159 billion.
The board of Transimex has passed a decision adjusting the order to implement share issuance plans, with the bonus share issuance being conducted first, followed by the issuance of convertible bonds and then the issuance of shares to pay a dividend to existing shareholders.
