Drumlin Co has $5m of $0.50 nominal value ordinary shares in issue. It recently announced a 1 for 4 rights issue at $6 per share. Its share price on the announcement of the rights issue was $8 per share.
My answer =
5m/0.5 = 10m shares
10m * 8 =80m
2.5m * 6 = 15m ( as right issue)
total 12.5m and 95m i.e, 95m/12.5 = 7.6 ?
but answer is sying 0.4 , please correct me where am I going wrong , thanks !
The TERP is indeed $7.60 per share.
Therefor the value of the rights is $7.60 – $6 = $1.60 for each right.
It needs 4 existing shares in order to get the right for 1 new share, therefore the value of the rights is 1.60/4 = $0.40 per existing share.
