ERoad may raise $40m in IPO, seek NZX listing

Eroad CEO Steven Newman

ERoad, whose products allow transport companies to manage and pay road user charges and keep track pof their fleet, is planning to raise some $40 million in new capital via an initial public offering before seeking to list on the NZX.

The Auckland-based company expects to release a prospectus in mid-July and list on the NZX main board in mid-August, it said in a statement.

The company will use the funds "to accelerate its growth strategy for the ERoad electronic solution to manage and pay road user charges, support regulatory compliance and provide value-added commercial services to the heavy vehicle industry," it said.

It has hired First NZ Capital as lead manager and Deutsche Craigs as co-manager.

ERoad joins a swag of companies coming to market in one of the busiest periods for years in IPOs through the NZX.
