Noble Group Ltd (NOBGF.PK), a Hong Kong-based commodities trader, is taking a stake in Australia's Arafura Resources Limited (ARAFF.PK, ARU.AX). Arafura Resources shares were trading down 20.8 percent.

In a statement, Arafura Resources announced a fully underwritten 7 for 20 non-renounceable entitlement offer at A$0.085 per share to raise A$23.2 million through the issue of 273.49 million new Arafura shares.
