The All Ordinaries Index (ASX: XAO) is finally having another day in the green so far this Tuesday. At the time of writing, the All Ords is up 1.13% to 7,614 points. But one ASX share isn’t at the table for these gains. That would be the Johns Lyng Group Ltd (ASX: JLG) share price.

Johns Lyng shares aren’t at the table because the company is currently in a trading halt.

Yes, before the market opened this morning, this ASX company released an announcement outlining the halt. Well, halts. The company stated it requested “consecutive trading halts”, with the expectation that Johns Lyng shares will only return to the markets on 13 December (next Monday).

So why has the company requested these halts? Johns Lyng Group said it is “in connection with a material transaction and a capital raising involving an institutional placement and a pro-rata accelerated non-renounceable entitlement offer”.

It stated the trading halt was necessary “to avoid trading taking place on an uninformed basis and to allow the capital raising to be executed in an orderly manner”.

And that’s essentially all we know for now.
