Stock is trading in Nil paid form in case you are wondering why the shares appear to have fallen by nearly 50%.
For every 5 shares you held you now have 9 Nil paid shares too that are trading at around 140p. You can choose to sell them in the market or take up the rights at a price of 140p per share. The Nil paid value will obviously be the difference between the new share price and 140p.
NOTE – For those less mathematically minded, the shares are up quite materially today. Here are the calcls –
Yesterday if you had 5 shares these closed at a value of £25.75 (515p x 5)
Today you have the same 5 shares valued at £15.15 (303 x 5) and 9 Nil Paids valued at £14.40 (9 x 160p) = £29.55 – an increase of almost 15%
Nomura upgraded to a Buy today too. Wonder how long Soc Gen’s “anal”yst’ is going to remain in a job…?
