Funds will be used to complete Codewise acquisition.
Domain name rollup CentralNic (London AIM: CNIC) is placing 40 million new ordinary shares tomorrow at £0.75 per share to raise £30 million.

The Codewise acquisition is full steam ahead. Acquisition deliverables have been met and the deal is now unconditional to take place on October 31, 2020.
