COVID-19 Capital Raisings – what we learnt

20 July 2020 | Australia
Legal Briefings – By Philippa Stone, Michael Ziegelaar, Tim McEwen and Philip Hart

The COVID-19 capital raisings resulted in an unprecedented amount of funds being raised by Australian businesses in a very short period – in excess of A$26 billion. This was in part facilitated by regulatory changes implemented by ASX and ASIC, which made it easier to raise funds.


In this report we look at:

  • the key trends of the Covid-19 raisings
  • the regulatory changes that facilitated those raisings and how long they are likely to continue
  • other possible regulatory changes, and
  • whether this level of capital raising is likely to continue into the future.
