De La Rue Offer Share Prices


Recommended Posts

Hi,

De La Rue announced they are offering a large number of shares at a discount price to people who held shares in the company on 17th June 8:00am. I have received no notification of this offer in my IG account whereas I know other people who have a different share dealing accounts with other firms have already received theirs. Please can anyone let me know when this will be made available and how it is notified within the share holding account?

Hi,

I can't answer your question but am in a similar situation holding APTIV shares, who recently announced an issue, and I've had nothing from IG - not even a response to my direct question to them re notifications etc as you have done.

Good luck...I'll follow your posts in hope of enlightenment!

Hi,

I finally managed to take up the allotted offer shares available to me; however, now that I can see them in my listed trading positions I cannot sell them if I wanted to. Again, IG seem to be well behind other trading platforms for making these available to deal. My friends have trading accounts in 3 other different platforms and all have them available to deal. Reading from the forums some people had them to deal the next day after the offer was made (7th July). How can this be right? I have watched  the share price drop from 142 to 127 whilst some people could sell the offer shares at 142. If the price had completely dropped on the 8th July I would have lost a fortune. I contacted IG who came back with a one sentence response stating they will be available on Monday (today) at the earliest. Not very reassuring. Why are they the last trading platform to make these available? Not good enough.

    • If you had left a limit order based on the previous margin requirement, it's likely the system would've adjusted it to match the new rate once it changed. This helps prevent any unexpected margin calls. However, it's always wise to double-check your orders, especially when there are fluctuations in margin requirements. 
    • Just look at CZ's impact on Binance or Gracy Chen's leadership at Bitget. It's incredible how a visionary leader can propel an organization forward. Gracy Chen's track record speaks for itself – fourfold growth in two years is no small feat! With her at the helm, Bitget could indeed be on track to reach new heights.
    • Hey, have you all heard about this zkLink Nova project? It's supposed to be some next-level technology for Ethereum and Layer 2 networks, and I've been looking into it. I'm telling you, this could be massive! Alright, let me break it down for you. zkLink Nova is like an "Aggregated Layer 3 zkEVM Rollup network" built on top of zkSync's ZK Stack. I know, it sounds super technical, but hear me out. Basically, it's a way to integrate all the liquidity and assets from Ethereum and different Layer 2 rollups into one unified platform. Now, why is that a big deal, you ask? Well, right now, all these networks are like separate islands, you know what I mean? Their assets and liquidity are fragmented, and we have to use questionable bridges to move stuff around. It's a complete mess, and it opens up security risks like crazy. But with zkLink Nova, they're using some fancy zero-knowledge proof magic to let us access the combined liquidity without needing to bridge assets! Can you imagine that? It's like having one massive, happy DeFi playground with all the toys under one roof. No more hopping around networks or dealing with shady bridge protocols. Just pure, unified liquidity and assets at our fingertips. The possibilities for dApp developers with that kind of power are insane! And get this – the zkLink team has already lined up over 60 partners to help steer this Layer 3 ecosystem! We're talking big names like Coinbase Ventures and Arrington Capital, who have already invested a whopping $23M into the zkLink ecosystem's development. I'm telling you, this Nova thing could be a game-changer for the Ethereum and Layer 2 space. It's like they're solving one of the biggest headaches we've had in DeFi with all these incompatible networks. Oh, and here's the kicker – the $ZKL token, which is the native token for the zkLink ecosystem, is now available for premarket trade on Bitget! This could be our chance to get in early on what might become the backbone of a whole new era of DeFi interoperability. But I want to know what you all think. Are you buying into the zkLink Nova hype? Or do you think it's just another overhyped project promising the moon? Let me know your thoughts in the comments!
