Australian natural healthcare company Rapid Nutrition has appointed diversified investment and financial services group Octa Phillip Securities, one of Australia’s largest independent broking firms, to provide access to their electronic trading platform and services to Rapid Nutrition shareholders.

Octa Phillip provides wealth management, institutional and private client stockbroking, corporate finance, research and funds management services and has direct channels into Asia.

Octa Phillip’s offices are in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide and the Gold Coast. It was formed by the Intersuisse Ltd acquisition of the Austock Securities business in early 2012.

Nicholas Pereza-Mathews, Head of Global Markets at Octa Phillip Securities said their global markets service provides custody and dealing for Australian companies that have listed on overseas exchanges and want to provide their Australian shareholders a full stockbroking service with the convenience of dealing with a local AFSL licensed stockbroker.

Rapid Nutrition managing director Simon St Ledger says this is an important move from a corporate perspective for Rapid Nutrition as the company recently announced its intention to list on an international stock exchange.

“The listing proposal will be presented to Rapid Nutrition shareholders for final approval in the coming weeks with the aim of a company roll up into a UK based public limited company to be completed soon after,” Mr. St Ledger says.

“The service Octa Phillip provides will allow prospective shareholders with a more efficient way of transacting in Rapid Nutrition shares.

“Our listing strategy will provide us with both the capital and opportunities to continue our research and development and expansion of our product range and help to secure our place as a dominant player in the health and wellbeing industry worldwide.”

Rapid Nutrition recently announced a joint venture agreement with Indian pharmaceutical production company Cheminnova to manufacture its own high quality finished formulations as well as derive an income from continued contract manufacturing.
