- On 29 March 2019, the Company initiated an equity placing of $3.5bn in conjunction with the recent strategic collaboration with Daiichi Sankyo Company, Limited (Daiichi Sankyo). The purpose of the placing was to fund the initial upfront and near-term milestone commitments arising from the collaboration, as well to strengthen AstraZeneca's balance sheet. One of the Company's capital-allocation priorities is to maintain a strong, investment-grade credit rating; the share issuance struck an appropriate balance between the Company's equity investors and creditors
