Hi!

I have recently sold off my mother shares for Genting. But I have forgot to sell off the 2 lots of my entitled shares (in CDP) together.

Anyone could advise how can I sell that 2000 shares?

    Just enter the sell transaction online like you normally do or call your broker?

Hi
If we buy 800 shares from Genting SP 200 and 1000 shares from Genting SP on the same day, does the service charge to broker counted twice or only once?

Reply
    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Edmond,

    You will have to check with your broker on that.

    Actually, you could have bought all 1800 using Genting 200, then you will definitely be charged only once.

Hi Lioninvestor,

Now the right has been converted to genting normal share ( genting sp200 ) .

Can i hold it for long term ? or i must start to trade ?

Reply
    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Sunstar,

    Did you pay the $0.80/right to convert it into normal shares? If you did, it will appear in your CDP account and you can sell it just like the normal Genting shares.

Hi Lioninvestor,
I have got my rights allotted to me.
Only 1200 rights and Genting SP gave me another 1000 excess right. That make it 2200, an odd lot.
Are they supposed to avoid odd lots by alloting like 1800 or 800 shares?
Anyway, just want to know how to sell my odd lots, the 200 shares?
Is it genting SP, genting SP 200, genting SP ES0910 or
genting sp es 0911?
what is the difference bet them?

Truly need your advise.

    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Jason,

    The 200 shares (or any amount in denomination of 200) can be sold using Genting SP 200 on the mainboard; listing for that counter is about 4 weeks.

    Alternatively, you can use Genting SP on the unit market.

    ES refers to extended settlement contracts.

Hi Lioninvestor,

I have 10200shares in total(original share:8000, rights:1600, excess rights:600) as at 21st.

Currently still odd lots? If i dun sell one mth from 21st, it will expire worthless?
What should i do now?

Thanks for your reply.

      Hi,

      But how come everybody is selling the odd lots? ie the extra 200shares? still odd lots? I saw most ppl either selling off 200shares or buying another 800shares?

      Like Jason(below) Why is he still query regarding the extra 200shares?

        lioninvestor says 9 years ago

        Hi Novice,

        I think a lot of people think they will be stuck with the 200 shares and can’t sell it after the Genting SP 200 counter is removed in a few weeks time.

            Don’t worry about what appears in your POEMS account. It doesn’t capture changes to your shareholdings that occur outside of poems.

            What is important is what appears under CDP.

Hi,
If we did not hold any share of a company and when the company offeres right, can we just apply by indicating accept the PAL = 0 and excess rights = # of shares we want to apply?

I seems to get a message that i do not have any shares in my cdp when try to apply via atm .. 🙁

    Technically anyone can apply for the rights but when they allocate them after the offer has closed, they will check for validity. Non-shareholders will not get any.

Hi,

I just got a notification letter from CDP, i applied for 5000 excess, but only got 1000 allotted instead. it is necessary to sell all the right issue shares within a certain period?

will these right issue shares being mixed up with my normal genting sp shares, and show up in my poems account?

Thanks.

Hi Lioninvestor,

I had applied 8000 excess but got 200 allotted instead.

So for selling, I will select the counter Genting SP 200 and enter 200 for the ‘No. Of Shares’ field. Am I correct about this?

P.S I am using POEMS Internet.

Sumedha

Reply
    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Sumedha,

    What you describes works but if you have POEMS account, you can also trade using their unit share market. Click on unit share, look for the normal Genting share and sell your 200 shares.
    The reason for using the unit share market is that the min commission is lower at $10.

    If you trade the Genting 200 using the normal market, the minimum comm is $25.

    Reply
      Sumedha says 9 years ago

      Thanks Lioninvestor!

      So just to confirm my understanding. I will go to unit share market and select Genting SP instead of Genting SP 200 and enter 200 for the No. of Shares to sell?

            Ok, so if your intention is to keep that 2000 shares and sell the 200 excess, you can do that method as indicated above.

            Note the the unit market price might differ by 1 or 2 cents compared to the normal price. It’s all a matter of demand and supply.

    Yes, there’s the unit market you can trade on. Orders have to be placed through brokers so offline charges apply. Alternatively, POEMS online allow you to trade in the unit market for $10 min comm.

Tan Elvin says 9 years ago

ya that is damn strange. they give 200 odd lots to those who apply excess right => either we sell it or keep it and if we keep it we have to buy another 800. that is so smart.

Reply
    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Elvin,

    Actually, you are not forced to buy another 800.

    There is always a unit market for transacting the 200 shares.

    But I agree the allocation is a bit messed up. Everyone ends up with odd lots.

    Genting SP R is not the same as Genting SP. I think you forgot to subscribe to the rights. Unfortunately, the 1200 Genting SP R that you have will expire worthless.

    Usually for those rights that are not eligible to foreign shareholders, they will just sell your rights and give you the money. If you do not fall into this category, unfortunately you would have lost your rights.

Dear lioninvestor,

I was holding 2000 units before it came with the rights issue.
so I am entitled 400 rights. I heard from someone saying the price for excess rights will not be 0.80 but will be (0.80+~0.30 as some floating points??) not too sure what it’s called.

Have you heard of something like that??

however, I’ve accepted the entitled rights and applied for access rights via ATM and all deducted from my atm account is (entitled+excess rights)*0.80.

so I am not sure if the additional charges comes later??

please comment as I become blur after hearing around. =p

thanks ya.

Reply
    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Blurr,

    No extra charges unless you go and buy the rights from the open market to apply.

    In that case will be around 0.30+0.80.

    Reply
      Blurr says 9 years ago

      Hi lioninvestor,

      thanks for your advice.
      that means, if the excess right application is done thru ATM, then the price will still be 0.80 per share. however, the number of units allocated later will be subjected to approval right??

      for example, if I am entitled 400 rights (coz I was holding 2000 shares earlier), and now I’ve applied for 2000 excess rights thru ATM, the possible approved unit will be 600 (based on your explanation on oddlot holder) =p

      and all approved excess rights will be at 0.80 (w/o the 0.30 since I applied thru ATM).

      Sorry that I sounded long winded, but this is to makesure I understood your explanation. THanks alot for your patience. =)

      Reply
        lioninvestor says 9 years ago

        Hi Blurr,

        Assuming you applied for 400 rights and 2000 excess rights, the total amount of shares you get allocated can range from 400 to 2400 shares.

        Whatever you get will be at a price of $0.80.

        Although, odd lot holders have priority, the excess rights is still subject to allocation.

        Consider the extreme case where there’s no excess rights leftover to be allocated, then of course no one will be getting any excess rights.

        Usually, there will be 1-2% of rights not taken up and used to satisfy excess rights application.

    Hi Elvin,

    Yes, you are correct.

    Actually, you shouldn’t have spend the money to buy the additional 600 rights. You could have applied for 400 rights and 600 excess rights. Good chance to be allocated the 600 excess rights since the priority for excess rights allocation will be given to odd lot holders.

hi lioninvestor,

the period is very short, mean after the period, the right issue shares is no value at all in the market?

Hi Lioninvestor,

If i buy the right issue shares from the market now, can i sell it off later when the price went up.
Any restriction for right issue shares in buying & selling?
What is the different between right issue share & mother shares?
Sorry for asking a silly question but not really understand. Thanks

    Hi CGK,

    Say you have 10,000 Genting shares.

    You will be given 2000 Genting Rights.

    You pay $0.80/right to convert them into Genting Rights Shares, which is the same as Genting shares.

    The period for trading of Rights is very short, if you buy, it will be at your own risk.

Hi Lion Investor, i have a question below and appreciate if u can shed some light.

If I bought genting shs @1.12 before it went ex-rights on Sept 18th, and I sold it off on 30th Sept @1.12, what kind of return/loss would i get?

Reply
    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Hinde,

    If you bought your Genting shares before the 18th and sold it after that, you would have gained from the Genting rights you were given which you can sell away at $0.30/right now.

Hi Lioninvestor,

Currently while applying the for the rights shares and exess rights shares, I still can trade my existing Genting shares now after I had being alloted with number of rights shares right?

My current 10lots of Genting shares are making some profit, thinking of profit taking.

    Hi Amy,

    Take note that when you pay using ATM, you will need to use your own bank and atm card which has the same name as your CDP account.
    You can’t get your friend to apply for you.

    You will be asked to enter your CDP account number when you are applying.

    You either apply either by
    1) form with cashiers order or

Hi Lioninvertor,
Thanks for the advice…
I just got my letter today, is infront of me and i am filling it.
Entitled 1200 rights, but i will bid another excess right of 12800. Possible to get it? Just base on your experience.
And
1. How do i know whether i have get the excess right before 12 October? need to get the money ready:)
2.If i bid for 12800 excess, plus 1200 my entitled rights, the total would be 14000. So, i need to pay $11,200 in advance, am i right?
3.And when my excess right has been rejected, will they be giving only 2800 instead of 12800?

Again, many thanks!

    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Jason,

    Given that price of Genting is so much higher than $0.80, demand for excess rights will be quite high. Think you would be likely to get 800 or 1800 excess rights.

    You have to pay upfront for all the rights you are applying, the balance will be refunded to you after the new shares have been issued.

        Hi CGK,

        The mother share is already trading ex-rights so you get nothing if you buy it.

        On the other hand, if you buy the Genting rights from the open market, you can subscribe to the rights shares at $0.80 each.

        But there is might not be much point because price of rights + $0.80 should be equal to price of Genting itself.

              Buy 2000 rights.
              Subscribe=> the 2000 rights will become 2000 genting shares.

              Sell like normal shares from 21st Oct onwards.

Hi lioninvestor,
1.I have 6000 shares for Genting SP, and as i know, right issue i’m getting is 1200 rights. So, could i just subscribe for only 1000 of the rights?
2.Just to avoid odd lots, means when i subscribe additional 800 rights issues making total of 2000 rights, i can get the price $0.80?
3.I think GIRO should be able to transact my payment of right issue, right?

Many thanks!

    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Jason,

    Why would you want to forgo the chance to buy 200 more shares of Genting at $0.80 when it is trading at $1+?

    You can always sell the 200 shares on the unit market later for an immediate profit.

    Another way is to pay for 1200 rights, and bid for 800 excess rights. Priority for excess rights will be given to odd lot holders so you stand reasonable chance of ending up with 2000 shares of Genting – all bought at $0.80.

            It’s very wierd. If you sold on 18th, you should get the rights. You got the date correct? Double check your CDP account? You can apply for online access to check.

            Depends on demand and supply. As they give priority to odd lot holders, there is a good chance of getting at least 400 excess. If you are lucky, then you might get 1400.

            for excess rights application, they can give you anything from 0 to the quantity you applied for.

            Priority is to give you at least enough to make it non odd lots although nothing is guaranteed.

Hi Lioninvestor,

Let’s say I hold 1,200 Right Share (Provisional) and I bought another 3,800 Right Share during the nil paid period (and fully paid for the Right Share bought). So the total Right Share in my CDP is 5,000 Shares.

When I made payment via ATM for this 5,000 Right Share, shall it be under the “Accepted Right Share” or “Excess Right Share”??

A bit confused if I am trading in CDP…

Reply
    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Edmond,

    First, let’s not confuse the terms rights and rights shares. They should not be used interchangeably.

    Nil-paid rights refer to the rights you are given when you need to pay $0.80 to subscribe. After subscription, they become rights shares or just normal shares.

    If you are given 1200 rights and subsequently buy another 3800 nil-paid rights from the open market, you should accept 5000 rights and whatever number of excess rights you want to apply.

    If the genting shares appear in your CDP account, then you are using CDP.

        If you hold your shares in CPF/SRS, the payment mode will differ. Your agent bank will mail you instructions on subscription process.

        Same also if you hold the shares via nominee and not in your CDP.

    Hi CM,

    I am not sure about this point; will have to check with them.

    One thing is that the ATM does not really check for your stockholdings when you are doing the application. Everyone can apply through the ATM (even if they have no shares). But when Genting is doing the allocation, they will weed out ineligible people.

    Hi Gerard,

    Yes, you can still apply for the excess rights.

    Priority for the excess rights is given to odd lot holders and least priority given to directors and substantial shareholders.

    Other than that, it is a black box how they prioritize the rest of the allocation.

        SGX will list both for sale. The 200 specifies the minimum lot size so if you are selling less than 1000 rights, you can use that.

        Rights start trading from 28th Sep so it should appear in your CDP just before that.

          If we accept 1,200 Right shares and apply 800 Excess Right Share via ATM, we pay a total of 2,000 x 80 cents = $1600 during the appln via ATM right?

          If we did not get the Excess Right Share, it will be refunded via our bank account AND NOT via Cashier Order, etc .. am I right?

            The rest is correct.

            Also, if you have your CDP account linked to your bank account for automatic crediting of dividends, CDP MAY also refund your balance rights money into that bank account even if you had paid using cashier’s order.

Hi Lioninvestor,
Like to seek your advice on the following as i am quite new to Rights issue:

1) If i hold 5000 shares and sold all my shares on 22nd September, then am i still entitled to the rights issue of 1000 shares since the ex-rights date is 18th Sep? I am a bit confused if i should hold on to my existing shares till 18th Sept or 28th Sept in order to get the rights shares.

2) What does nil-paid rights mean? I saw that 6th October is the last day of trading nil paid rights and is a bit confused.

3) If i want to purchase the rights issue of 1000 shares, then when is the cutoff date for me to make payment through cheque/ATM? Is it before 6th October or 12th October?

4) When will the rights shares be credited into my CDP and thereafter i can start selling the rights shares? Is it 21st October?

Thank you.

    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Mask,

    1) Yes. You will see 1000 Genting Rights in your CDP account from 28th Sep onwards. This is the nil-paid rights and if you want to sell them, you have until 6th Oct to do so.

    3) You have until 12th Oct to pay to convert the nil-paid rights into normal Genting shares.

    4) After you have paid, the shares will be credited to your CDP and you can start trading them estimated on 21st Oct. Look out for a confirmation on the exact date later.

      Hi Lioninvestor,
      Thanks for confirming that i am entitled to the 1000 rights shares provided i hold on to the existing shares until 18th Sep.

      A few more questions below to seek your advice. Thanks.

      1) From 28th Sep onwards, I will be issued 1000 rights shares. So, if I want to sell them then I must do it before 6th Oct. But then can I sell this 1000 nil-paid rights at market price (e.g. $1.10) or at $0.80 before 6th Oct?

      2) In this case, I have not made payment of $800 for this nil-paid rights yet since I have up to 12th Oct to make payment via ATM. So can I start selling before 6th oct? Or must I made payment first before selling?

      Reply
        lioninvestor says 9 years ago

        Hi Mask,

        You sell the rights only if you do not intend to pay $0.80/right to take up your entitlement.

        The market price of the rights will be approximately

        Market price of genting share – $0.80

        In a nutshell, you are given 1000 rights which you can either

        1) sell for $200-300+ (depending on price)
        2) pay $800 to convert them into normal shares.

        There is also the option of excess rights.

        You might want to refer to my earlier post on Capitaland Rights Issue for a more detailed explanation.

Hi Lioninvestor,

I am a bit confused on the rights issue too, so please enlighten me:

Q1: Does it mean that from 28 Sep, I can convert the rights shares that I am entitled to mother share by paying the 0.80 via ATM? Once the rights are converted to mother share, I suppose I can sell at market price rather than $0.80 right?

Q2: If I do not wish to buy the rights, but I would like to sell the number of rights allocated to me, do I still need to go to ATM to subscribe the rights first before selling them off? When I sell off the rights do I sell it at $0.80 or at the market price?

    2) If you do not wish to subscribe for your rights, you can sell them during the nil-paid trading period. You sell it at the market price which is about

    price of genting – 0.80

Correction. Tradable period of the rights is till 6 Oct and not 5 Oct.

Hi Martin,

Thanks for your response. I suppose we can sell odd lots for the Rights as I will only be entitled to 800 to sell basing on 4000 shares I still owned.

Thanks

    Hi Peter,

    There will probably be Genting R200 being traded.

      Hi,
      Some queries…

      1. During the nil-paid trading period, we buy/sell our Rights under Genting R1000 and R200 separately?

      2. Are we trading as per normal via our brokers?

      3. Will we be seeing our holdings of rights in CDP (or broker) during these period?

      4. Am I right to say that after the end of nil-paid trading period, CDP wil send us a letter to make payment? And these are not supposed to pay via normal EPS Payment?

      Thanks.

        Hi Edmond,

        1) Either one is fine.

        2) Yes. Broker or online.

        3) It will appear in your CDP but not inside your broker’s portfolio holdings.

        4) You will receive the offer document around 28th Sep with instructions on how to subscribe. Thereafter, you need to follow the instructions to subscribe. Typically, you can pay by cashier’s order or use ATM to subscribe.

          Hi lioninvestor,

          Thanks.

          I know I will receive the offer doc on 28th Sep. Let’s say that i am entitled 1000 rights shares (so the payment is $800).

          However, i start trading during the nil paid period (until 6 Oct) and the final share I had is 5000 right shares. (Payment should be $4000)

          1. After 6 Oct, will I be receiving another letter from CDP indicating the new Right Share I own?

          2. Is this 5000 right share I had traded is mine? or is subject to allocation by Genting?

          3. Shall I just proceed to make payment via ATM (for the 5000 Right Share) after the nil-paid trading period and before the closing date of 12 Oct?

          Thanks ya.

            Hi Edmond,

            When you say trade, do you mean you buy more rights from the open market?

            If you do that, just keep track of how many rights you have in total and apply via atm accordingly.

              Hi lioninvestor,

              I mean I will buy and sell more from the market at $0.80.

              Based on your reply, the total number of Right Share I have get via Online broker may not be the final and subject to Genting’s allocation? (i.e. if I trade and owned 5000 Right share and made payment of $4000, I may not get all 5000 Right share?)

              Thanks again for your patience as I am new to this…

              Edmond.

            Hi Edmond,

            The rights will not be trading at $0.80.

            They are just like very short term call warrants on the mother share.

            $0.80 is the subscription or exercise price.

            So the rights will trade roughly at Price of Genting – $0.80.

            For every 5 shares of Genting that you have, you will be given one right.

            You can sell this right or pay $0.80 to convert the right to the mother share.

              Hi Lioninvestor,

              A bit confused here.

              1. Let’s say I am entitled of 1,200 Right Shares, at the “nil-paid” trading day, I buy (without selling any) 3,800 Right Shares with price, say $0.25 (Closing Price of $1.05-$0.80). What is the amount I need to pay before the closing date of payment?

              Is it $0.80 x 1,200 + $0.25 x 3,800?

              2. What will happen if I buy and sell of my rights at diffrent price and profited, will I get any payment?

            lioninvestor says 9 years ago

            Hi Edmond,

            In the example you quoted, you will need to pay (by normal settlement date) $0.25*3800 for the rights you buy.

            By the end of the rights offer period, you pay $0.80*5000 to convert all your rights to normal Genting shares. If you forget to do this, your rights will expire worthless.

              Hi lioninvestor
              OK, clear about the payment.

              Will I be getting the whole 5000 share when I made the second payment via ATM? Or it’s subject to Genting’s allotment and at the end may be alotted 3000 shares?

              If I sell off the whole 1,200 right share I own, I wil get $0.25 x 1,2000 as well?

              Thanks ya.

            If you have the rights and you pay for them correctly, you will get the shares.

            You can also try applying for excess rights ($0.80/share). This is subject to allocation.

      Hi all,

      Some further queries… how long can we trade the odd lots (Genting R200)? Since I am going long for this counter, I would like to keep the odd lots (800).

      Reply
        lioninvestor says 9 years ago

        Hi Newbie,

        the rights are tradable from 28th Sep to 05 Oct. If you don’t subscribe to convert them to normal shares, they will expire worthless.

        Alternatively, you can sell your rights during the trading period.

May I know if we hold the shares in Genting and credited to CDP account, are we considered Entitled Shareholders or Entitled Depositor? What is the difference between the two?

Reply
    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Edmond,

    Entitled shareholders consists of entitled depositors and entitled scrip-holders.

    If you hold your shares in CDP, you are entitled depositors.

Hi Martin,

According to the key dates for Genting Rights –
Shares trade ex-Rights – 18Sep09 from 9.00am &
Commencement of trading of “nil-paid” rights : Monday, 28 September 2009 from 9.00 a.m

So when can we sell our rights if we dont want to keep them?

Is it the from 18Sep or 28Sep ?

Thanks and regards

Dear Martin,

In the recent Keppel Land rights share issue, I saw my share price increased to 100%.

We now see GentingSP dropped 4cents below the opening CR price.

What are your comments and possible reasons for the drop? Is it due to historical sept/oct bearish trend or near correction period?

Stephen

    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Stephen,

    Genting shares have rallied by quite a lot before the announcement of the rights issue, so I’m not surprised it dropped from $1.20.

    Keppel Land, on the other hand, was coming off a low during that time.

    Human beings like to look for patterns but it’s futile to compare like this as a lot of factors could be affecting the price.

Hi Lion investor,

Need your explanation does a company has limit of issuing Rights?

What it takes the board of directors to issue this rights aren’t there other alternatives to raise money ?

Thanks

Reply
    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Newbee82,

    Capital funding sources

    1) Borrow from banks
    2) Get new shareholders and do placement
    3) Find new bondholders
    4) Tap on existing shareholders (Rights issue)

    If 1-3 fail or are not attractive, then you resort to 4.

    There’s some requirement stipulated by SGX on the rights issue – can’t remember what they are. The rules were amended recently to make it easier for companies to do rights issues.

I think s’pore IR is a roar to the region and many will “flog” here simply because its new in our country. If 50,000 tourists try their luck at $1,000, in a month, it can approximately see 50 million a month or 600 million a year. I personally will try $1,000 on the table. I’m sure the IR receive both low as well as high rollers, if they are coming by. I believe it will also be “well-received” by the speed of recovery and emerging opportunities in asia. With the new ranking of ease of business, S’pore will be better off in terms of economic recovery. The new IR will optimally “entertain” those who are here for business or leisure. Technically, it cannot be opined as in terms of “big” or “small” or succeed or failure. I personally think that all reasonable factors need to be measured individually as well as collectively in a given horizon as oppose to just one or a few variables or opinions.

The opening re-valued share price that comes with right is at $1.10. The ex-right price $1.05.

Hang Lung Properties’ Chan Says Singapore’s Casinos Will ‘Flop’
2009-09-10 05:20:36.882 GMT

Sept. 10 (Bloomberg) — Ronnie Chan, chairman of Hang Lung
Properties Ltd., Hong Kong’s fifth-biggest developer by market
value, said the two casino-resorts in Singapore will fail
because they won’t be able to attract high-rollers.
Las Vegas Sands Corp., the casino company controlled by
billionaire Sheldon Adelson, and Genting Singapore Plc, a unit
of Asia’s biggest listed gambling operator, are building
Singapore’s first two casinos.
Chan commented after attending the Bloomberg Leadership
Forum in Hong Kong.

“The big rollers are what make money in casinos, they will
never come to Singapore, it’s a family entertainment” location.
“You think big-rollers will go to Singapore where they
have teeth and fangs coming out sideways? There are too many
rules. I was in Sentosa island, I really think that it’s going
to be a flop.
“The whole integrated entertainment industry, I’m worried
for them. The good thing about Singapore is that if you flop,
you’re given a second chance.”

this is unlikely to be the last rights issue or fund raising, given the existing debt and the cost of funding the $6b IR. from my understanding they have only draw down a small portion of the loan for the IR abt $1.5b, and the reminder will be continue to be draw down. there’s also rumour about cost overrun. all in all, the debt should be about $7 to $8b. how many years it will take to breakeven, what’s the annual profit and cash flow are the big questions that many forgot, in the midst of the euphoria. i have no more position in this counter after selling recently.

Reply
Intheknow says 9 years ago

so fair value now is [1.2 (recent closing price before CR) x 5 + 0.8] / 6 = 1.13?

Reply
    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi intheknow,

    Yes, that’s the theoretical ex-rights price. They used $1.19 as the last closing price which gives a theoretical ex-rights price of $1.125.

    IMO, that figure is meaningless to be used as a basis for valuing the shares. More as a guide to calculate breakeven price.
