  • Nil paid shares

    When a Rights Issue is announced, you receive nil paid rights in your account to indicate your right (but not obligation) to participate in the Rights Issue. Nil paid rights can be sold in the Market (although they have a limited life span - please contact us if you want to sell). If you decide to take up the rights issue, you cannot then sell your nil paid rights.
