Announcement - GraniteShares 3x Short Tesla ETP


Recommended Posts

Dear IG traders,

GraniteShares would like to inform you about our decision to consolidate the GraniteShares 3x Short Tesla ETP (3STS). For every 1,500 ETPs owned, investors will receive 1 new ETP in exchange.

Investors already invested in 3STS will own fewer ETPs than before the consolidation but the Value per ETP will be proportionally higher. As a result, there will be no impact on the value of your investment. If the consolidation results in any fractional securities, they will automatically be redeemed in cash.

The record date for the consolidation will be on 14th May 2021 with the consolidation date effective on 17th May 2021. Proceeds linked to fractional ETPs are expected to be transferred to the clearing systems on 19 May 2021. Please note it may take a few days for the payment to be received.

GraniteShares believes it is in the investors’ interest to keep ETP prices within efficient trading ranges, and to try and avoid situations where ETP prices become too low or too high.

GraniteShares will not charge any commissions or fees related to the consolidation of securities or disbursement of the payments if fractional securities are involved.

Please refer to the following link for more information: https://graniteshares.com/institutional/uk/en-uk/research/3sts-reverse-split-effective-17-may-2021/

In case of any additional questions, please let us know.

The recent 3STS split may be a halving of potential gains when looked at from a market crash perspective. Consider the example below where I have compared a pre-reverse split price and post reverse split price based on 1,275,000 units consolidated into 850 units post reverse split. It appears that the holder may be at a disadvantage after the reverse split should market conditions be adverse under the leveraged 3STS security. The gains are lower in terms of value after consolidation and much higher at pre- reverse split. This comparison is based on a 33.33% daily drop in Tesla which equates to a 100% rise in 3sts. It's a what if there was a 100% gain for 3 days scenario and what are the implications of a reverse split? 

Reverse split comparison
1,275,000 units | Day 1 | Day 2  | Day 3  
Before split | $0.014 | $0.028 | $0.056
Value           | $17,850 | $35,700 | $71,400
--------------------------------------------------------------------
   850 units   Day 1    | Day 2     | Day 3
After split    | $10      | $20        | $40
    Value        | $8,500 | $17,000 | $34,000

I already answered on Reddit, but I am happy to share also the answer here 😉

As indicated on GraniteShares’ website, “Securityholders will own fewer ETP Securities than before the consolidation but the Value per ETP will be proportionally higher. As a result, the value of a Securityholder’s investment will not change […]. If the consolidation results in any fractional securities, they will automatically be redeemed in cash […].” Note that each is supported by example on the website.

The amount invested will not drop from $17,850 to $8,500 after of the reverse split. It will not change, saved for eventual fractional securities.

The objective of the product remains the same as well and its performance will not be affected by the reverse split.

As a reminder 3STS tracks, excluding fees and other adjustments, the performance of the Solactive Daily Leveraged 3x Short Tesla Inc Index that seeks to provide -3 times the daily performance of Tesla Inc shares.

It is not about halving the amount of money. Like you mentioned (17850 to 8500) it is about number of shares if I had 225000 shares now I have only 150. Although the value remain the same. The future returns are significantly lower.

from 225000 shares at a price 0.007 if it increase daily by 10% in 90 days this would make around 1m

but given 150 shares at a price of 6 if increase by 10% daily  then need  almost 150 days to get around 1milion.

granite shares just made a trick, this is my opinion.

not gonna buy any more of their product

Number of securities before 225000 price 0.007

if daily increase 10% for 60 days

0.007*1.1^60= 2.131 then multiply by number of shares 2.131*225000 =479558

after consolidation 

Now I received 150 shares instead at a price 6 

6*1.1^60= 1826.8 then multiply by number of shares 1826.8*150 =274033

the question: how does consolidation benefits me as a security holder?

When Tesla start falling they decided to make consolidation. After two month the Tesla will fell by half. This would increase price for Etp. So it wouldn’t be too low price. There is no any benefit from this consolidation to holders.

and there is absolutely no need to consolidation.

there is a trick behind it. Granite shares just mad a trick to grab the capital.

Your consolidation has reduced the number of units I own as described, but the prices are still pre reverse split, so the value of my holdings has reduced considerably. I also can't trade this online and it took me an hour to speak to customer services yesterday.

When will this be fixed please?

Thanks

I understand your point of view, but doing the reverse split was something very important to do.

The price per ETP was as low as $0.0040 at some point and if the price was going below that, GraniteShares should have done an early redemption which would have been worse than the hypothetical scenario of declining profit for 90 days thereafter.

Early redemption mean that all position of all clients are closed and the product do not exist anymore. 

It would then have been necessary to wait two or three months for the product to be reissued on the London Stock Exchange.

and there is absolutely no need to consolidation.

 

As I said in my previous message, it was to prevent an early redemption.

I am pretty sure that an early redemption, closing all trade and making the product unavailable for minimum 3 month would have been much more annoying for investors.

    • Why is this stock unavailable to open for non-Pro clients? Surely a fund is less risky than an individual stock.
    • Hi @Kgrp74 Thank you for reaching out.  HMRC rules don't allow you to hold foreign currency in an ISA, but you can still buy international shares. The gains on currency conversions are only seen and credited in the account once you sell the shares if the currency rate is favorable to you. We also have to consider the 0.5% spread added to the exchange rate and commission charges which would normally offset your profits.  Thanks, OfentseIG
