Training giant QA plans to raise £ 6 million through a cash and shares rights issue to pay off a debt it acquired during the acquisition of GAIS and further expand its business. The company intends to use money raised to pay off the debt left over from 1999, when it bought GAIS. It also wants to invest in a training centre in Swindon. QA has also started running technical seminars for high-level managers who are more concerned with strategic issues than the hands-on elements of the business. The courses are being held in hotels in London and Berkshire.
