At a directors meeting on 16 August, it was decided that 1,000,000 share applicants were unsuccessful, while the remaining 1,500,000 share applicants were allotted shares on a pro rata basis with the excess application money to be applied against the amount due on allotment.
The underwriting commission was paid on the 28th August. Other share issue costs of $8,000 were also paid on this date. All outstanding allotment money was received by the due date.
