Specialist lender enters ASX 300

Scottish Pacific has been promoted into the S&P/ASX 300, the liquid, float-adjusted index that includes Australia’s 300 largest securities by flat-adjusted market capitalisation.

The specialist lender, which focuses on working capital solutions for small- to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) is now part of Standard & Poor’s and the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) index, which provides exposure to Australia’s large, mid and small-cap equities.

Scottish Pacific CEO Mr Peter Langham said the company’s entry into the ASX 300 benefits shareholders by introducing the company to a wider range of investors.

“Given investors regularly use the ASX 300 as a benchmark for superannuation portfolios and managed funds, we would expect interest from a broader base of potential investors,” Mr Langham said.

“Scottish Pacific remains well-positioned to grow core exposure and revenue by leveraging our scale to serve the working capital needs of SMEs.

The S&P/ASX 300 index covers approximately 81 per cent of Australian equity market capitalisation. This index is designed to address investment managers’ needs to benchmark against a broad opportunity set characterised by sufficient size and liquidity.

Scottish Pacific successfully listed on the ASX in July 2016 at $3.35, with a market cap of approximately $445 million.
