In August 2020, TFG raised ZAR 3.95 billion via a fully underwritten renounceable rights offer as a COVID-19 prudent measure to reduce indebtedness and provide capacity for its growth strategy. During the successful rights offer, TFG announced its acquisition of the JET business from Edcon proving TFG with a strategically important expansion into the value segment of the South African retail apparel market which along with the well timed rights offer was well received by investors.
