Rights Issue help

Recommended Posts

10 hours ago, Barneydog1 said:

IAG has announced a rights issue and share holders can take up an “allocation” at 36% reduction to the price the shares closed last night 9/9. 
my question is how do I take up this offer when my shares are held in an account with you? Am I legible to take part? 

I would also like to know the answer please to Barneydog1 question.

Hi all - has anyone unearthed any info on this? I'm also wondering the same. 

I did come across this letter from the IAG Chairman: https://www.iairgroup.com/~/media/Files/I/IAG/agm-documents/en/chairmans-letter-uk.pdf - it doesn't answer the question per se but only further highlights that we appear to be in the 15 day window mentioned here: https://www.iairgroup.com/~/media/Files/I/IAG/press-releases/english/2020/Fully%20Underwritten%20Capital%20Increase%20to%20Raise%20Gross%20Proceeds%20of%202741%20million.pdf

Hi Guys, any update on this IAG "rights issue"? I am beginner on share trading, and very confused with this right issue.

Today suddenly I have huge lose on IAG, the share price dropped 30%+. I was told it is to do with right issue. But surely I should get some sort of "compensation"? Maybe buying the "rights" at very low price? But so far nothing happens.

Guest I spoke with IG last fri

I was advised I’ll receive an email from corporate actions informing of three opportunities. Taking up the offer, trading rights, Not doing anything. Nothing as yet so they will be receiving a call from me tomorrow although Thursday is the first big day.

Hi I spoke to the help desk a couple of time’s. Today they confirmed we would be receiving an email today giving the option to take up Additional shares at the discounted price. It comes from IG not IAG as our shares are held in a nominated account.

So, I’m in the same boat, the Helpdesk guy said the rights issue would appear in my account in a few days and I could either take up the rights to buy or sell the rights on market. I’m new to trading and would really like some advice on what my options are. Don’t really want to buy more shares but would really like to limit the loss I see on my account. I assume the rights issues won’t be priced high enough to recover the drop in value.

Received this reply today!  I tried calling but no luck in getting through!!

Thanks for your email.

Mine appeared this morning as "International Consolidated Airlines Group SA (LSE) Rights Issue".  Quantity is the same as my shares up to 9/9. Avg price - 0. Says call to close.

Would like to know if there is anything I need to do to ensure these are eventually added to my standard IAG shares.

See the rights in my account, but no email from IG about it, like they typically do asking you if you want to take up the rights or do nothing or trade them.

Very weird one. Did they forget to send out the email this time or is it something else?

Taking up rights is typically for free. Lapsing them is of course for free.

Although trading the rights, might be subject to fees. I imagine the standard rates apply.

Question is if they apply the online rates (£8 / £3) or because you have to call in, you pay the phone rates, which are like £40.

    • Sainsburys full year earnings and Unilever’s first quarter trading update both say the same thing, UK consumers are in for higher prices. The war in Ukraine, supply chain issues and the effects of ongoing Covid all to blame.      
    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
