NOL Rights Issue Proposal

A proposed NOL Rights Issue was announced this morning by NOL to raise approximately S$1.437 billion. Existing shareholders will be given the option to subscribe for 3 Rights Shares at $1.30 for every 4 existing shares that they own.

The Rights Issue is renounceable and based on yesterday’s price, the theoretical ex-Rights price is S$1.43 per share.

Temasek Holdings, having an interest in 67.43% in NOL’s shares, has agreed that it will subscribe and pay in full all the Rights Shares that the Temasek Entities are entitled to. 

The underwriter for this issue is DBS and the indicative timetable for the NOL Rights Issue will be announced at a future date pending approval from SGX-ST.

    Kelly,

    Do you see the shares reflected in your CDP account? They can be sold like normal shares.

Eric Lye says 9 years ago

Yes, I paid full for the rights.

    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Eric,

    That means you own them as NOL shares now. You can refer to your July CDP statement for the total number of NOL shares that you own.

    Hi Eric,

    did you pay to subscribe for your Rights? ie paying $1.30/rights to convert them to the mother share.

Hi,
When does NOL pay dividends and is it twice a year?
What was the latest amount paid?
I am unable to get the info from their website.
Any someone advise me as to whether I should hold on to the shares as long term investments?
Thank you.

    Hi Linda,

    NOL used to guarantee a certain minimum amount of dividends but have recently changed their dividend guidance policy.

    You can read through their recent result announcements to find that.

    alternatively, you can find the past dividend information from sgx site. choose company:NOL

HI,

I look at my CDP balance account after subscribing the NOL right issue and found this:-

NOL LTD BALANCE B/F 10,000
NOL R BALANCE B/F 7500

But found out that my current Holdings shows NOL LTD 10,000. Can I trade 17500 NOL shares

    Hi Marc,

    The CDP might not be updated yet. Best to check on the morning of 16th July.

Hi Lioninvestor,

Could you advise what is the meaning for the following term:
1)nil paid right
2)splitting of rights
3)renunciation of right

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Kelly

Reply
    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Kelly,

    Nil-paid rights refers to the rights you are given, but have yet to pay money to convert them to the normal shares.

    Renounce means give up your rights in favour of another person. Splitting allows you to accept part of your rights and renounce the rest.

Jieming says 9 years ago

Omg, I thought is tomorrow. I want to convert my rights. How? I spend 2k plus to buy the rights. What can I do now? Please help.

    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Jieming,

    Today as in 8th July (wednesday).

    You have until 930pm today to raise the funds you need. If you really can’t do it, you will have to take up whatever amount you can afford…

Hi,

Sorry, I am new to rights, hope you can answer a few of my enquiries.

I had bought rights from the open market through dbsvickers. May i know when i accpet the rights from DBS, do I key in under rights accpeted or excess PTS APPL? I understand that these is the 2 options. Therefore for rights bought at open market, which is the one to accept?

I bought 15K rights, so by accpeting it will be SGD 19500. I presume there will be no limit as compare to cash withdrawal or internet banking of 3K a day? Must I call DBS to increase my limit?

What is the price after 16th July when we offcially can trade?

Thanks,
Jieming

    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Jieming,

    For rights bought from the open market, you should key in under rights accepted.

    Note that today is the LAST day for you to accept the rights.

    Done at ATM machine so internet banking limits does not apply.

    The price on 16th July is anyone’s guess….

Hi, I bought 2000 NOL shares @$1.50 on 30/6/09. Am I affected
by the rights issue? I am new to trading and will appreciate if you
can advise me what is the best option. Thank you.

    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Linda,

    As you bought the NOL shares on/after the ex-rights date, you are not involved in this rights exercise.

Kelly says 9 years ago

Hi lioninvestor,

Thanks for the earlier reply.
As I am new to right share, could you tell how to obtain faster info that the right issue was given to me? Now, the NOL right issue had closed.
I understand I can’t sell it. Do they send us letter that right share was given to us?I did not receive anything and did not sell it. How to check the closing date of sale of the right share ?What I receive is the conversion of right share to mother share.

Regards,
Kelly

Hi lioninvestor,

I’m pretty new to trading and I’m not too sure of how to exercise my rights shares. What are the ways that I can make payment for the rights shares?

I’ve been provisionally allotted 2250 rights shares and I’m wondering where or how can I sell off the 250 shares since to my knowledge trading is usually done in lots?

Thanks!

    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi AH,

    The easiest way would be to apply via the ATM machine. Steps are similar to this:

    http://www.martinlee.sg/capitaland-rights-issue/#comment-10732

    Alternatively, you can get a cashier’s order.

    There is a unit market for all counters to sell single shares actually. Order placement is done by calling your broker.

Hi

I had brought 2000 NOL share. They send me a letter regarding the right issue AND I do not know what to do. I was provisionally allotted right issue of 1500. Do I have to pay for this right issue (1500)? What should I do with the form send to me? What is right issue? Is it given free to us or we had to pay for it?

Thanks & Regards,
Kelly

    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Kelly,

    Please refer to this example that I did earlier for Capitaland.

    http://www.martinlee.sg/capitaland-rights-issue/

    As you can’t sell off your rights already, you will have to decide whether you want to pay $1.30/right to subscribe for your rights.

    Essentially, you are paying $1.30/right to convert them to NOL shares.

    Since NOL is currently trading at above 1.30, one option is to sell off 1500 NOL shares, and take up your rights allocation of 1500. This would be better than doing nothing.

    You can also decide to apply for excess rights in addition to your allocated rights.

    You have until Tuesday 8th July to do it.

Hi lioninvestor,

I bought 40k @ 0.15 NOL R shares on an online acc without noticing that yesterday was the deadline but i’m not interested in subscribing it @ $1.3 per share. So does tat means tat my contract is now worthless even if pay up the contract payment? pls advice! thanks!

Reply
    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Qn,

    After you settle your contract payment, you will be left with 40k of NOL rights.

    The rights will expire worthless if you don’t use it to subscribe for NOL shares at $1.30/share by 8 July 09.

    Reply
WSA says 9 years ago

Dear Sir,

I bought 20k share of NOL R today (open market) before closing and noticed that today is the last day of trading the rights. I can sell it tomorrow because of last day.

Therefore, doest it meant I have to subscript all 20k and pay at $1.30? When is the last day of payment?

Pls advise.

Thanks

Reply
    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi WSA,

    Yes, you can’t sell it already. You have until 8 July to subscribe to all your 20k shares at $1.30/share otherwise they will expire worthless.

    However, one way is to check the buying-in market at 11am every day and see whether there are any short-sellers that need to buy back their trades that day. You can sell it to them in the buying-in market through your broker.

    Important thing to note is that you can only do this after the shares are inside your CDP. So you won’t be able to do it these few days.

I have one lot (1000) of NOL shares bought at $1.78.

Will I benefit or lose from the rights issue and the pricing offered in the pricing issue.

Reply
    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Prit,

    Given that the rights subscription price is less than the current trading price of NOL, you have to do something. Doing nothing will be detrimental to your position.

    Either

    1) subscribe and take up all your entitlement
    2) sell your rights
    3) Combination of 1 and 2.

Hi lioninvestor,

I have 2250 NOL rights shares.

Can i subscribe the 2000 rights shares via ATM and sell the balance of 250 rights shares?

If yes, how and when i can sell the balance of 250 rights shares?

Reply
    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi Ac,

    There’s a counter NOL R 750 but it’s only for trading of 750 rights. Last day for selling this is 2nd July.

    Another way is to take up all the 2250 rights and sell 250 NOL mother
    share on the unit market.

    Yet another way is to take up all the 2250 rights and try applying for 750 excess rights. Depending on how many excess you are allocated, you can then sell any odd lots on the unit market.

Hi lioninvestor,

I have 1500 NOL rights share. But I want to subscribe to another 500 shares to make it 2 lots, so as to trade in the open market. How and where can I do that?

Many thanks!

Reply
    lioninvestor says 9 years ago

    Hi HL,

    You can either buy another 500 rights from the open market so that you can subscribe for 1500+500 rights or apply for 500 excess rights.

Hi, regarding cretu’s question, what if i bought it after ex-rights and before the books closure date? As far as I understand, I will not be entitled to the rights.
So if there is a change, then there will be an announcement made?

wat does “BOOK CLOSURE DATE FOR RIGHTS ISSUE” (19 jun 09 for NOL means???

Reply
    lioninvestor says 10 years ago

    Hi cretu,

    the book closure date is read in conjunction of the ex-rights date. It is used to determine the cutoff date for entitled shareholders of the rights issue.

    Reply
      cretu says 10 years ago

      hi lioninvestor, in this case, does that affect me if i am holding on to nol shares???

      or is it just a procedural issue (or date) in conjunction with the ex-rights date?

      thanks

      Reply
        lioninvestor says 10 years ago

        No issue for you if you have been holding it all these while. More for those who are buying/selling NOL shares during this period.

cretu says 10 years ago

if i have only one lot (1,000) of nol share as of close of trading on tuesday (16 jun 09), tat means I have 750 shares of rights???

does it mean i can sell this 750 when trading starts on 24 jun 09???

is it then possible to trade only 750 shares on the market??? considering that volume are denoted by lot size, ie. 1,000 shares…

      I scanned through the two NOL documents (ie the proposal and the presentation) several times and I did not come across such crucial info.
