OMU Nedbank Group spin-off


West92

Question

Hi,

I have received the following email from IG:

Old Mutual completed its ‘managed separation’ strategy by unbundling its majority shareholding in Nedbank Group on 15 October 2018. As part of this unbundling process, Old Mutual shareholders are eligible to receive 0.0321 Nedbank shares for every Old Mutual share they held on 11 October 2018. 

Unfortunately, we won’t be able to offer you shares in Nedbank or rematerialise the stock for you because it’s listed in South Africa where we have no appointed agent – but we’ll offer you cash instead.
How will the cash offer be calculated?
For every Old Mutual share you held up until 11 October 2018, we’ll offer you the cash value of 0.0321 Nedbank shares. This will be calculated according to Nedbank’s closing price on 10 October 2018 of ZAR248.59, and will be converted into pounds sterling at the applicable exchange rate. So if you held 100 Old Mutual shares, you’ll receive the equivalent of ZAR797.97 (100 x 0.0321 x ZAR248.59 = ZAR797.97).

Do you think it is right that IG is using the value as at 10 October? This is because the price of the stock has risen by 10% over this period but IG is not recognising it. I believe they're profiting from this deal, and bullying retail customers. Could anyone advice?

Thanks

Wee

    • Saga is positioning itself as a "layer-1 to launch layer-1s" - a mainnet platform that is explicitly designed to empower developers and enable the next 1,000 chains in gaming and entertainment. The core idea is to make it easier for developers to build infinitely scalable decentralized applications (dApps) through Saga's "chainlet" functionality. Essentially, they are customizable Layer 1 blockchains that can be deployed and operated within the Saga network. These chainlets share the same validators and security model as the Saga mainnet, providing developers with a robust and interoperable infrastructure to build on. The ability to rapidly deploy customized, scalable chains is a game-changer for blockchain gaming, and I can see Saga attracting a lot of attention from leading studios and indie developers alike. With the Bitget listing, SAGA tokens are now tradable on a major global exchange. This presents a fantastic opportunity for the project to increase its visibility and accessibility to a wider audience of investors and enthusiasts. Bitget's deep liquidity and advanced trading features should make it easier for both institutional and retail players to gain exposure to Saga.
    • I have not been a fan of either of exchanges and wallets native tokens but would wanna explore it now. I took interest from the current hype around BNB, OKB and BGB. These tokens particularly BNB and BGB has shown strength which is obviously due to increase in demand to take part in the most of the launchpool. BNB rose almost 80% in the past 1 year, BGB was on the spotlight with about 190% in a year. OKB may not be left out due to it's potential but has made any significant movement recently. Wallet tokens on the hand have also been doing well but may not be compared to Centralized exchanges imho; I have also monitored few wallet particularly trust wallet and C98 wallet. My best guess is we could be seeing the wallet tokens making impressive price action as we approach post halving due to increase in transactions and I wonder if any one here is considering the prospect BWB token for Bitget wallet. Launching pretty soon and airdrop participation in play. I would appreciate your speculative opinion on it potentials.
    • In the realm of cryptocurrency exchanges, playing by the rules isn’t just a suggestion—it’s a must for staying in the game. Most major centralized exchanges (CEXs) strive to adhere to these regulations, implementing measures to prevent money laundering and illicit activities. However, a recent controversy has emerged with BingX, a top CEX, defying US sanctions by allowing Iranian users full access to its platform. BingX facilitates Iranian Rial trading, directly violating US sanctions. They allow Iranian users to trade cryptocurrencies without KYC verification. This, along with offering peer-to-peer (P2P) transactions using Iranian fiat currency, further raises red flags. This incident is reminiscent of the past troubles faced by giants like Binance, who were caught facilitating transactions for sanctioned individuals, resulting in a $4.5 billion plea deal with US authorities in 2023. The question remains: will this defiance by BingX lead to its downfall? Regulatory bodies in the US, like the SEC or DOJ, might take action.However, the severity of the situation raises questions about the long-term viability of the exchange and whether it may face the prospect of closure or severe penalties for its actions. As governments grapple with the complexities of digital assets, CEXs that prioritize expansion over compliance will likely face increasing scrutiny and potential consequences.
