EasyJet Rights Issue


Recommended Posts

Afternoon all,

I was hoping someone here could clarify some conflicting information I am receiving about the EasyJet rights issue. It was my understanding that if you held a position in EasyJet as at 6pm Wednesday 8th September that you would be able to take part in the rights issue. However I have just received this response from IG support:


If you hold a Easyjet position on the close of business 10/09/21 then we will book the new rights on your account on the Ex-Date 13/09/21.

This has me worried as I offloaded some of my shares in easyjet yesterday - under the assumption that the timeline provided on EasyJet's corporate site was correct.

Record Date for entitlements under the Rights Issue 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday 8 September 2021

Thanks in advance

Hi @DeuceBiggalow

Thanks for the query

Please note that the ex date for the event is 13/09/2021. You would need to hold the shares going into the trading day on Monday to be entitled to the rights. The benefit of the rights remain with the seller selling his shares on or post the ex-rights date. The date of record is the cut-off date where you would need to appear in the shareholders list, in order to determine eligibility to participate in the right issue. 

All the best

Appreciate your help @AndaIG. Sorry for the bother then but this is a bit new to me can you confirm my understanding...

At Close on Wednesday I held 1000 shares
During Trading Thursday I sold 1000 shares
During Trading Friday I bought 1030 shares (due to the price fall I picked up more shares)

From your posts I believe that as I held shares on Wednesday I am entitled to participate in the rights share and the amount of 'rights' I am entitled to is 1030 because that is what I currently hold (and will not be selling)

Thanks again for your help

Thanks for this information - very helpful. What will happen on Monday - how will the rights issue be offered to eligible shareholders please? Will we receive an email then or do we need to deposit funds ahead of the time for example? Many thanks!

Hello Admin. 

I am kind a new to this.  Can you please explain how would I actually exercise my "rights to  acquire 


31 for every 47 that I have. Do i need to call in and buy inform you guys  or will I automatically get these added to my shares. Will someone at the help desk be able to guide ( what times open ?)  or can I have private chat to explore my best options.

Hi @keyman22 @kais

Thanks for the question

You would have noticed that the rights have now been booked onto your account. You will be sent an email from our corporate actions team providing all the details relating to the rights issue. To exercise your rights you simply need to reply to the email with your instruction.

    • “If you want your life to return to normal you will need a vaccine passport”  NT Chief Minister Michael Gunner says. Government blackmail is the new normal.  The race is on, can the govts of the western world force digital passports on everyone using covid as the excuse before people realise the vaccines don't work and actually make things worse? Immunization expert: 'Unvaccinated people are not dangerous; vaccinated people are dangerous for others' - America's Frontline Doctors (americasfrontlinedoctors.org)   The UK ‘Vaccination’ Programme. Part 1: Adverse Drug Reactions and Deaths – Architects for Social Housing (ASH) ...  the logical conclusion to be drawn from these figures (PHE), is that the COVID-19 ‘vaccines’ that have been injected into the arms of 48 million people in the UK make no difference to the health impact of SARS-CoV-2, the viral load or its infectiousness. ... Last week, PHE published its latest, 22nd technical briefing, under the same title, and the results of the UK ‘vaccination’ programme are even worse. ... these figures show that partial or full ‘vaccination’ has made no difference to ‘infection’ with SARS-CoV-2, or at least to receiving a positive RT-PCR test, and, in fact, that the percentage diagnosed with this method was increasing among the so-called ‘vaccinated’. The percentages get even worse, however, when we look at deaths within 28 days of a positive test. .

    • OK lots happening in the markets this week - not going to have chance to write up every market, so I'll keep on with EURUSD and GOLD EURUSD: Minor double top which stopped the advance and stopped out the long from the swing #2 low off the trendline - Price has caved through the 50% level (1st attempt provided small profit)  Outlook = the 50% level is STILL an active level - we are also approaching and have to consider the prev green swing lows as we are very close to that being a possible triple bottom to bounce from and then we are also near and close to black triple bottom territory - just below the black line is the weekly 50% level [not shown] So apart from the gann 50% level - looking for potential reversal set-ups around/near the previous lows - for me these long poss trades take precedence over shorting at this stage On a more higher level, "IF" a swing low forms without the swing low of #2 green being hit or exceeded then it's technically a bullish gann secondary reaction or Elliott Wave 2 formation with an initial target of the prior swing high #1 and the red swing high #2 still as ultimate potential target also remember that the expectation from a double top is the target is the prior swing low - so if that double top performs to that expectation it will invalidate the secondary reaction option and form a triple bottom Remember to survive and thrive in this game, if the market changes the outlook you have to change too, unless you'll be left holding positions for reason A when the markets no longer working out to reason A!!!! - This is a huge factor in why people fail to win in this game, you have to have multiple outlooks, no preference and just trade when a set-up appears, most people like to be right and as we can see this market is in a multiple possibility position, which most people can't compute   GOLD:  We have had an unusial and rare minor quadruple top, the expectation there was for a gann 4th time lucky to happen, but it didn't, the reason for this was that the double top possibility was stronger than the 4th time lucky potential - market has caved to the 50% level of the prior swing and triggered a gann 50% trade as it rallied back through it - this level is in a tight zone from the previous swings labelled a/A Outlook: We have an active 50% trade - the expectation from this is a rally back up to the prior swing high which was a confirmed double top too - I didn't mention this previously, so I', hoping those watching carefully are picking up things (I don't mention everything!) - the DT worked and shorting it to the 50% level IS [was] a valid trade - take 2 mins here and think, long if the gann 4th time lucky trade triggered, if it failed, then we could potentially have a double top which you can short - this is absolutely acceptable thinking - you trade with the market, forming pre-conceived hard and fast ideas can stop you trading profitable trades - remember the market is in charge, we just piggy back along it OK so if a rally happens from the 50% level, it will form a triple top possibility, so you need to be aware for a reversal at that level - This is NOT guaranteed to happen and price could go straight through and upwards If price continues to drop then it will approach a triple bottom - again it does not have to do this, but more often than not the following happens, it will form a gann 4th time lucky attempt on the lows and more often than not price goes through that level so the expectation is to short it at that level and more often than not when price crashes through a 4th time lucky point it then retraces back towards that level for it to then continue down It is also perfectly possible for the market to create a quadruple bottom as we have seen of the recent highs, a gann secondary reaction / Elliott Wave 2 too - so like the EURUSD market we have to be open and flexible in our thinking and trade only when a confirmed set-up appears Like anything don't trade other peoples plans, trade your own methods and set-ups once you fully understand them and have tested them thoroughly Trade at your own risk and THT cannot be held responsible for other peoples trading The purpose of this thread is to show you how swings interact and from which very profitable trading methods can be established from those swings of the market THT
