Great to have found your site. It cleared up pretty much of my doubts. If not, I would have done nothing and lose my rights 🙂 Anyhow, I’m curious how the “nil paid” trading works. A person with the mother share is entitled to the rights and can sell it over the counter right? Is there anything this person need to do first to trade the rights? Does he pay anything to sell the rights?

    Hi guppy,

    Just have to make sure you have the correct number of nil-paid rights in your CDP before selling them.

    Normal brokerage fees apply when selling. This is done like selling a normal stock via the exchange.

So $0.59 is for the shares not the rights?
thanks!

    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Kay,

    $0.59 is for converting the given rights to shares.

When do the rights expire?

    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Kay,

    For CCT?

    All the rights have already been allocated and converted to shares. Those who own the rights and did nothing would have lost their rights.

    Hi Alice,

    If you have an online CDP account, you can check the status.

    https://www1.cdp.com.sg/web33/scdcint/main/logon.do

    Another way is to check how much money was refunded to you.

IF I buy nil paid rights today in the market, can I subscribe for them at the ATM. (before paying my broker or do they have to be fully paid for before subscription)
I will pay broker and they will be free by the closing date

    lioninvestor says 10 years ago

    Hi Indra,

    No issues as the allocation is all done when the rights issue is closed.

Hi,

If i buy the rights now, can i immediately convert it to mothershare via ATM?

Or will CPL send a letter to inform me about the subscribing?

    lioninvestor says 10 years ago

    Hi Rake,

    You can apply via the atm immediately but the new shares will only be given to you on 3rd July.

And, does purchasing excess rights the same as purchasing nil-paid rights?

Reply
tang says 10 years ago

I have some questions with regards to Capcomm rights issue here.

1. Just to double confirm, there isn’t a need to mail any letters if the payment is made through ATM right?

2. I do not really understand the meaning of nil-paid rights and do not understand who is able to buy/sell rights during the nil-paid rights period.

I currently have some Capcomm shares. I understand that the shares through this right exercise will only be reflected in early July. So my question is, how do i purchase excess rights (beyond what i’m entitled to) or how do i sell part of my rights?

Reply
    lioninvestor says 10 years ago

    Hi Tang,

    1) No.

    2) Nil-paid rights refers to the rights that allows you to buy CCT shares at $0.59. Anyone can buy them during their trading period. Those who own the CCT R can sell them. These will be the original CCT shareholders who hold the CCT shares over ex-rights date.

    3) You can sell your rights via the CCT R counter. If you do not sell your rights, you need to act to pay $0.59/right to convert them to CCT shares.

    You do not need to purchase excess rights. You pay $0.59/excess rights when you apply for them via the atm. How many you ultimately get depends on how many rights are left over and how many people are applying for the excess rights.

Hi Lion,

I have sold all the mother shares during the ex-right date, entitle and received the 1:1 rights upon issue date, which i have sold all of the rights.

However i still receive the application form to apply for entitled/ excess rights, given that i have already sold my entitlement rights, can i still apply for excess rights this way since they are bonus profit if the mother shares do not drop below $0.59/shares.

    Hi Baoqiang,

    Yes, you may but there might not be too many excess to go around. Do keep me posted of how many you eventually get.

      Hi Lion,

      Thanks for the advice, i will try my luck to apply for a couple of excess and let you know the outcome.

Hi,
I tried applying for the rights today (at around 10pm) but it says service unavailable. I noticed on one of the screen it says it’s only available on mon-sat till 9:30 pm. I cant seem to find any mention of the 9:30pm DAILY cutoff in the documents sent. Am i missing something here? or we still cannot apply the rights via atm?
Thanks

    lioninvestor says 10 years ago

    Hi Vincent,

    The rights is already open for subscription but you have to do it before 930pm each day if you are doing it via atm.

    Hi coco,

    Yes, you may. Note that the period for trading is quite short.

Hi,

I am not vested currently in CCT. Am I still able to buy the rights

CapitalCommR and have it converted to the mothershare?

CapitalCommR is currently trading below the price of $0.59, thus is priced at a steeper discount than the rights offering.

This doesn’t seem right?

Reply
    lioninvestor says 10 years ago

    Hi Rake,

    The price is correct. $0.30plus+0.59=0.89plus, which is about the same price as the mother share.

    In theory, buying the rights and converting them should cost the same as buying the mother share directly.

Hi,
May I know how to apply for the rights issue and when is it available for application. I have the mother share and am entitled to the rights. I tried to use the ATM, but there is no CCT rights available on menu. Thank you.

Reply
alice says 10 years ago

hi lioninvestor,

just want to confirm – if today buy the mothershare, still entitle for rights?

aside, seems like this rights offering is not attractive as no one bother to ask. is there any downside if investing in REITs? I am new to investment, just keen to learn more …

thanks,
alice

    lioninvestor says 10 years ago

    Hi Alice,

    yes, today is the last day for Rights Entitlement.

    One of the downside is a Rights Issue. lol

    I will try to write about REITs in a future article.

      alice says 10 years ago

      looking forward for your article on REITs soon. 🙂
