Company I have CFD with is subject to takeover. On the premise that bid is successful  Will I benefit from the sale or am I at risk if I do not close CFD’s before share is delisted?

Thanks in advance

Hi @Bobabc

CFD positions are also included in the offer. Since the corporate action can have a direct impact on the price of a stock or have some effect on the stock, IG must replicate what occurs in the underlying market on clients leveraged positions

The affect that a takeover will have on an existing CFD position will vary, depending on whether the acquiring company offers cash, stock, or a combination of both for the target company.

Cash takeovers:

Your position will be closed out when the cash is received and adjusted for interest, depending on the contract of the trade.

Stock takeovers:

Your original position will be closed, and a new position will be opened to reflect the terms of the takeover, based on the previous night’s closing price. Any stops or limits will be adjusted accordingly.

Cash and stock takeovers:

The original position will be closed, and a new position will be opened to reflect the terms of the takeover based on the previous night’s closing price and the cash offer, and adjusted for interest depending on the contract of the bet. Any attached stops or limits will be adjusted.

All the best, OfentseIG

    • I believe DOG, as a memecoin is already quite popular and making a buzz. But as to your question, there are always new entries into the crypto space and when a reputable CEX like Bitget list it, it will substantially expose it to new communities and potential investors...    So all in all, I believe it will be good for DOG and it's future prospects! 
    • Sometimes ago, there was a CEX offering something similar but it was for new users and I even got to know about it a bit too late so I just didn't bother.   I think it's always great to see a CEX like Bitget offering this kinda promo for both new and existing users...    Thanks OP for the early heads up 👍
    • I saw Taiko on my TL yesterday but I didn't particularly pay much attention to it... But it seem they are on a good path and have forged some reputable partnerships along the way...  I have to say it's association with big guns of the industry like OKX, Kucoin etc makes it a good prospect and if you can get some of the coins early in the Bitget Pre-Market trading as you said, it will probably be a good investment in a long run!
