2021 Rights Issues

A rights issue invites existing shareholders to purchase additional shares of the company at a discounted price within a specific period. In contrast to an IPO, a rights issue is not offered to the general public, but only to existing shareholders proportionate to their holdings.

It is possible for eligible shareholders either to subscribe for the rights issue partially or fully; or to let the rights lapse by refusing to exercise their right to purchase additional shares; or to transfer their rights entitlements to others. The renunciation of rights can be accomplished by the trading of rights entitlements on a stock exchange similar to the trading of equity shares.

An eligible shareholder can benefit from a rights issue by acquiring additional shares at a premium over the market price. In contrast to bonus shares, the rights issue comes with a price, so one should study the company’s performance before subscribing.

  • The offer to buy a rights issue is an option for the existing shareholder, not an obligation.
  • In order to qualify as an existing shareholder, one must be a shareholder of the company on the record date.
  • Shareholders who subscribe to the rights issue in full may also subscribe for additional shares. The additional shares will be allocated based on the issue subscription.
  • By trading the rights entitlements, the rights issue can be partially subscribed and partly transferred to other investors. As a result, neither party will have the option of purchasing additional shares over and above those issued under the allocated rights issue.
  • To differentiate rights entitlements (RE) from normal equity shares traded on the market, they are assigned a different ISIN.
  • Prior to a rights issue, RE trading closes a few days prior.
