- therefore after record date you have
1000 Orica shares at a cost base of $ 9040 ( 90.4% of 10000 )

MIG Demerger to ITO & MQA

Stex Portfolio does not have a specific routine to handle this demerger but the following workaround should be adequate but you need seek advice from your financial advisor/accountant. This is an example only to show the method of processing the arrangement - do not rely on the figures used - consult the paperwork supplied by the company.

1 MIG share becomes 1 ITO and 0.2 MQA shares
The cost base of ITO shares is the cost base of MIG shares * 0.833
The cost base of MQA shares is the cost base of MIG shares * 0.167

For this example the holding is 1000 MIG @ cost base of $ 3500

1. Multiply the cost base of your MIG shares by 0.833 to get the value of MQA shares eg. $ 3500 * 0.833 = 2915.50
2. Multiply the cost base of your MIG shares by 0.167 to get the value of MQA shares eg. $ 3500 * 0.167 = 584.50
3. Multiply the No of MIG shares by 0.2 to get the number of MQA shares eg. 1000 * 0.2 = 200
4. Enter a BUY transaction for MQA at the original transaction date eg. 200 ITO shares with total cost of $ 584.50
5. Enter a BUY transaction for ITO at the original transaction date eg. 1000 ITO shares with total cost of $ 2915.50
6. To remove the original MIG transactions enter a dummy SELL transaction for MIG for the total number of MIG shares and the exact total cost. This will effectively negate the original MIG transactions showing ZERO gains but will still be recorded in the portfolio for reference purposes.

AMP DEMERGER

Stex Portfolio does not have a specific routine to handle this demerger but the following workaround should be adequate, however, due to the complexity of this particular restructuring we suggest you seek advice from your financial advisor/accountant:-

(Before carrying out this procedure we recommend you make a duplicate copy of your portfolio(s) i.e. Tools>Make Duplicate Portfolio for reference)

1. Calculate your entitlement of HHG shares
29.1947766% of your AMP shares x $5.9142238
example: If you have 1000 AMP
29.1947766% = 291.9 shares x $5.9142238 = $1726.36

2. Reduce the cost of your AMP holding by the value calculated
Enter a Capital Return on AMP for your entitlement eg $1726.36
This effectively reduces the cost base of your AMP shares

3. Enter your new holding of HHG shares as a BUY transaction
Number of units will be same as the number of AMP units you hold eg 1000
Unit Price = Value of entitlement / Number of HHG units
eg 1726.36 / 1000 = 1.72636

So the BUY transaction for this example will be
HHG 1000 shares @ 1.72636 = $ 1726.36

BHP STEEL

BHP issued 1 BHP Steel share for every 5 BHP shares held to be priced
at a rate of 5.063% of the cost base of each BHP share.

To show you how to calculate the cost for your BHP Steel shares and the
consequent reduction in the cost base of your BHP shares we have used
and example using 1000 BHP shares at a total cost of $10260
(However you will need to determine your actual holdings and total
cost of BHP shares at the time of issue of BHP Steel - below is an example only)

In our example the average cost per BHP share is $10260 /1000 = $10.26 therefore
BHP Steel cost is (5.063 / 100) x 10.26 x 5 = $2.59 per share

The number of BHP Steel shares issued (1 for 5) = 1000 / 5 += 200 @$2.59 = $518

1. Enter a BUY transaction for 1000 BHP Steel shares @ $2.59 (total cost $518)
2. Do a Capital Return on BHP for $518 (i.e. click Transactions > AdjustData for Issues, Splits, etc.
and enter the appropriate Capital return.)

Remember to use your own figures to do this transaction correctly.

WMC DEMERGER

There is no direct way of handling this but we have come up with with a work-around. (The example below will show you the method you can use but you will need to calculate using your holding & total cost)

For this example:-

You have a holding of WMC shares - 2500 shares at a total cost of say $ 18750
Those shares will be converted to 2500 AMC (Alumina) shares
You will receive a further 2500 WMR (WMC Resources) shares at no cost to you
The cost break-down is 53.7% to Alumina and 46.3% to WMC Resources
Therefore:- Enter a sale for your holding in WMC at the cost originally paid eg sell 2500 for a total cost of $ 18750
This wipes out WMC at no profit or loss
Calculate the percentage break-downs (AWC) 18750 x .537 = $ 10068.75 (WMR) 18750 x .463 = $ 8281.25
Total overall cost remains $ 18750.00
Enter a Buy (at the original WMC buy date) for AMC 2500 for a total cost of $ 10068.75
Enter a Buy (at the original WMC buy date) for WMR 2500 for a total cost of $ 8281.25
When entering the transactions make a note in the "Details/Memo" section eg. WMC demerger

CSR SPLIT

You get 1 share in Rinker for every CSR share held
The cost base for CSR is split 25% to CSR and 75% to Rinker (RIN)

So

Calculate the current cost of your current holding of CSR shares (the easiest way to do this is to display a current status report and look on the CSR line - total units held and total cost will be the figures to use as below)

Calculate 75 % of the total cost of CSR

Apply a Capital Return on CSR for the 75% figure
Then enter a Buy Transaction for RIN for the number of shares you hold in CSR at a total cost of 75% as calcuated above

This leaves 25% as CSR and 75% as RIN
