GME 4:1 Stock DIVIDEND split?


Recommended Posts

Hi. I am a little bit confused about the method used to do the GME stock split.

I do received an email from IG regarding the GME 4:1 stock split that creates more confusion than clarifies the things. There it is no reference that the split it is created through a dividend instead of a regular stock split.

My question it is if the Stock split it was created using the:

a) Forward stock split, function code FC-02, ISO event code SPLF

or

b) Dividend stock split, function code FC-06, ISO event code DVSE

It is a huge difference between this two ways of doing the stock split and there it is no way to check how my new shares was created after the 4:1 split.

I will appreciate some clarification regarding this subject from the IG staff.

 

Best regards.

Hi @acornopolis,

We are unable to ascertain how the company processed this event, but from IG's end we mirrored the custodian and it seems they processed this as a stock split. 

The client would have an extra 3 shares for each one held before Ex-date and the new market (after Ex date) price would be feeding into the give the client’s P/L.

We won't know how the company recorded it.

Thank you - Arvin

who is the custodian?

Hi @ncalvelo,

For Share trading accounts, IG operates a direct custody model. This means shares purchased through IG will be held by Citi as the legal owner, with IG as the beneficial owner.

The client is the ultimate beneficial owner, therefore the additional shares were received by Citi for our aggregated holding for all clients in accordance to the terms, IG then booked the shares on each client's account.

I hope that it helps !

Thank you - Arvin

    • Basically, they're letting creators mint NFTs and other digital stuff across multiple blockchains at once. Holograph isn't the only one trying to build bridges between blockchains. Projects like Omnibridge and Wormhole are also in the game, each with their own way of moving your digital assets around.  While Holograph focuses on this "native minting" thing across chains, other projects might be a better fit depending on what you need. Doing your research is key! Definitely something to consider. While Holograph recently scored a cool $11 million in funding, omnichain functionality is still pretty new. They've also got some interesting features, just landed on Bitget, and seems to be building an empire state. There could be bumps in the road, so be sure to do your own research and understand the potential risks. So, what do you think? Is Holograph the future of NFTs, or is it just a bunch of hype? Have you tried any other cross-chain solutions? Let's hear your thoughts in the comments!
    • May 22nd marks Bitcoin Pizza Day, a celebration of the first real-world transaction using Bitcoin. In 2010, Laszlo Hanyecz made history by offering 10,000 Bitcoins for two Papa John's pizzas, showcasing Bitcoin's practical potential. The cryptocurrency community commemorates this milestone with various events, including meetups, webinars, and giveaways. Bitget's Pizza Day Raffle is one such event, offering prizes in cryptocurrencies and tokens. Whether you're interested in Bitcoin's history, community, or uses, this event is worth exploring.
    • HashPack rocks. Their wallet's is easy to use, and they're everywhere in Hedera (dApps, DeFi, NFTs). The Bitget listing is gonna be insane for them.
