ASX 200 continues its ascent, reaching for 6,200

The ASX 200 (ASX: XJO) has continued its ascent. It opened lower in early trading but now it’s rising towards the 6,200 level.

Here are some of the movers and shakers from the ASX so far:

Kogan.com (ASX: KGN) capital raising

Kogan.com isn’t actually moving at the moment because it’s in a trading halt to carry out a capital raising.

There will be a $100 million fully underwritten placement at an offer price of $11.45 per share. Kogan.com will then do a share purchase plan (SPP) for existing shareholders to raise up to $15 million.

The raised money will be used to provide financial flexibility to quickly act on future acquisition opportunities. Two of the previous investments that it has made have been Dick Smith and Matt Blatt.

Kogan.com said it is able to drive value from businesses with a strong brand by leveraging its existing systems, processes, supply chains and technology.
