QUANTUM Property Group’s (QPG’s) debut on the AltX yesterday was a success, with the company’s shares trading steadily between R1,75 and R2,25 a share by 4pm.

Executive chairman Chaim Cohen said the downturn in the local economy would favour QPG. “The previously ‘hype-fuelled’ property market is finding equilibrium, exposing value-invested acquisition opportunities at realistic prices.”

He said that despite the global credit crunch, QPG directors were positive about raising further capital when necessary through strong banking relationships.

Cohen said he was anticipating a greater shift to the property sector in light of the credit crunch.

“In addition, investor appetite for QPG’s shares was reflected in the full take-up of our private placement in a tough market, which bodes well for future capital raising,” he said.

QPG raised R32,3m in its prelisting more than a week ago through the issue of shares to select investors in a range between R1,50 and R1,80 a share. Cohen said QPG’s working capital requirements were taken care of by part of the capital raised.

He said QPG’s directors had not considered postponing the listing in light of the global securities crisis.
