cascadian: Hi Balhamalcolm For CGT purposes the cost of the shell shares depends on how much you paid for your BG shares The £6.54 is the amount of your BG share that has been transferred into Shell Shares. (Conversion rate was based on shell shares being £14.68. The default option was £3.83 cash plus .4454 of a shell share. The £14.38 multiplied by .4454 gives the £6.54.) If you paid £6 for you BG shares £2.22 has been converted into cash (the £3.83) and £3.78 into Shell shares. The £3.78 bought you .4454 of a shell share, thus each shell share cost you £8.49 (£3.78 / .4454) for CGT purposes
spob: " Selling RDSB at the right time and transferring all into BG will net me an easy 12.5% with another 9% div to come over the next year. 21.5% for this year alone. " Sounds great Can you just tell us what the shell share price will be in 12 months
jammyjambo: I own BG Group shares and have to make the decision of what to do with them. I'm no pro investor which may explain my confusion. But why would I not just sell my shares now which are approx 1015 each rather than take the offer next week of 383p per share + [0.4454 * (RDSB - divs)? Or am I missing the point? Is the 383 on top of the share price on the day of the decision? Thanks, James
spob: 99.53%
gymratt: I'm voting 'for'....the deal makes sense over the long term if you're investing for income. The lower the share price, the more shares are bought within the ISA with the reinvested divi..'win win' situation!
whiskeyinthejar: He talked about the oil price because he was asked! Its going to come up isn't it! But article is clear - he said merger is “not a bet on the oil price”. Going back to your other comment- I'm not spinning it I'm putting it simply. You or Spob or whoever can disagree or put me right, but I don't think I've written anything unreasonable. The Oz Gas facilities are an asset which I say is worth £13 Billion because that's the facilities cost to build. You don't have to agree they are worth that, but if you don't have a reason to disagree then you've lost the argument. I actually suggest the Oz Gas LNG facilities are worth more to Shell, because Shell can use them to develop their current Oz assets. Anyway, the remainder of bid is new Shell shares in return for the existing BG shares. So Shell shareholders get diluted by 20%, which in return Shell increases proven reserves by 25% and increases in production by 20%. Again you can say, actually Shell has refinery assets etc. so exchange is unfair. Or you can say BG are increasing production exponentially and gas is more valuable than oil, so deal undervalues BG. That's your call, but in terms of exchanging dilution for bg reserves thats the deal simply put. However, if this deal wasn't happening, because BG is moving from investment phase to more of a production phase, BG share price would imo outperform Shell and the sector over the next year. Oz Gas project is now on stream and ramping up, Brazil has ramped up production and so unlike last few years BG have free cash flow. Depending on prices this ought to mean a growing dividend. Anyway, BG shareprice has fell from over £15 to £9 because Oz project overran, all the cash generated was being soaked into the massive gas project and pessimism over gas price. Pessimism over gas persists, but project is complete now, so Shell are are getting BG rather cheaply imo. But you don't get to buy a premium company without paying a premium to current shareprice. That shouldn't concern Shell holders however, as BG is obviously worth more as part of Shell than as a standalone company because of synergies and risks being spread (Shell identified $3.5 billion of cost saving synergies etc.)
enturner: Value used for conversion of RDSB shares received to cash will be the opening price for RDSB on 15th February under the current agreement. Your £3.83 per BG. share is fixed, but if you elect to receive all in cash then the RDSB shares you receive under the offer (0.4454 RDSB for every BG. share) would be converted to cash based on the opening RDSB price on the 15th Feb. You won't know your total until that day but you will have to elect (other than the default position) beforehand. I believe 10th. The risk is that the market will be diluted, and under downward pressure, on the day but the cash leaves you the option to buy back in at a lower level shortly afterwards. You spend a little extra on Stamp and broker fees but at least you hit the button on an agreed price beforehand rather than leaving it up to the market makers on the 15th. I suspect we'll see a little dip 16th-19th when dilution/offloading will occur and a 100% cash option could be converted into RDSB at optimum buying levels. An all Share option however could see you saving stamp duty and broker fees whilst buying RDSB at an average of low 1200s. The default option gives you the option somewhere in the middle. Once again you make your own mind up as no one ever really knows how the market will react. Best of luck and hope this helps. If anyone sees it differently then I welcome a response. E
whoppy: I was thinking of converting the 3.83 cash into ShellB shares. Shell will be paying a dividend of $1.88 in 2016, approx £1.25. Thought having the extra ShellB shares was worth it. Only risk is don't know what the ShellB share price will be or what it will do in future, but seeing as we're getting ShellB shares anyway, might as well convert the cash.
karateboy: Thank you spob. I assume (RDSB-dives) means , these initial RSDB shares do not attract any dividend until after a year. Is that correct? Using current SDSB share price, BG share currently worth £10.80.
shalder: If you do the maths then buying BG. @ say 930 and holding to completion of deal is equivalent to buying RDSB @ 1228 xd, versus current market price of 1469, i.e. a discount of above 16%. it then comes down to whether you are confident the deal will go ahead and that the terms are not renegotiated (which requires inter alia that both sets of shareholders approve the deal next month). If the deal is aborted then the BG. share price will lose its support and likely fall substantially. You pays your money....
