How To Process SMDC Shares After Tender Offer

UPDATED as of 9/13...

Were you not able to exchange your SMDC shares to SMPH shares?

There are a lot of people who have been asking me how they can process their SMDC shares since the tender offer had passed. I haven't experienced this so I really can't share a firsthand experience but I was able to contact a more knowledgeable person and stock market mentor in the Truly Rich Club forum through our "facebook-like" social networking. It's a lot easier to post queries.

I called the numbers given to me by the mentor from Truly Rich Club and I was transferred to this number below.

Contact numbers:
+632-840-7000 loc. 32104

I was able to talk to a person named Michelle. Tell her you weren't able to exchange your shares during the tender offer.

Here are the questions I asked her and below are the answers I got from her:

1. Can an SMDC shareholder still tender his/her shares even if the offer has ended?
Right now, SM Land Inc. has already acquired their targeted percentage of share. (As far as I can remember they targeted for 95% and they were able to acquire more than that). As of the moment, it is under discussion on whether SM Land Inc. will still consider processing the acquisition of the remaining stocks of those who weren't able to tender their share. Please tell Michelle your name and how many shares you still have as they are listing it down. There's no assurance that SM Land will still buy those but they might use the information (on how many shareholders are still willing to sell their shares) in deciding what to do. Again, there's no assurance that they will buy it but at least give it a try to have your name and number of shares included in the list.

2. Can I still post a sell order to my SMDC shares in PSE?
No. Since transacting of SMDC shares has been suspended and SMDC filed for voluntary delisting already. This means SMDC will not be actively participating in the buy and sell transactions in PSE.

3. If I can't tender my shares to SMDC and I can't sell it in PSE, what will I do with my shares?
Option #1. Sell it. To whom? To individuals who are willing to buy it from you. It will be your responsibility to look for a buyer and to process the buy and sell manually to SMDC office.

Option #2. Keep it and enjoy the benefits of being a shareholder like receiving dividends. Dividends will be sent to you directly.

I know this is a not-so-good news for those who weren't able to tender their shares but I hope this post enlightened you with how things are going to be. Appreciate your feedback if you have any. Please post comments below.

P.S. Again, for newbies out there who wanted to join the stock market but have no idea how to do it. Do not be discouraged if you aren't knowledgeable enough or you have ZERO knowledge in stock market. There's a club who can help and guide you, and that is the Truly Rich Club.

METROPOLITAN BANK & TRUST COM. (MBT): 30% Stock Dividend Ex-Date Announcement

The moment I've been waiting for has come.
METROPOLITAN BANK & TRUST COM. ( MBT ) has finally announced the details of the 30% stock dividend for shareholders.

Dates to Remember:
1. Ex-Date - August 29, 2013
2. Payment Date - September 16, 2013

Here's the news from COL Financial which I am sharing with you.

When Do I Buy Shares To Ensure I Get The Dividend?

To ensure you get the dividend, buy shares BEFORE the EX-DATE. Those who hold the shares a trading day before the ex-date will receive the dividend. Therefore, since August 29 is MBT's ex-date, make sure you buy MBT shares on August 28 at the latest or you sell your shares (if you have) after August 28, 2013. 

When Will I Receive the 30% Dividend?

Payment Date is on September 16, 2013. So, if you are a COL Financial user, you will receive a notification in your email address regarding the stock dividend you will receive on September 16. Here's a sample mail of Stock Dividend notification I received during the payment date of my SMPH stock dividend:

What's the Minimum Amount I Need to Buy MBT Shares?

MBT Details:
Price per share: 110.10 pesos as of August 16, 2013 closing time.
Boardlot: 10 shares

If the price of MBT shares remains the same as of August 16, 2013, you only need 110.10 pesos * 10 shares = Php 1101 to buy the shares (plus charges that will most probably not exceed 30 pesos). If it becomes lower, then it's much better. You'll get 10 shares at a lower price.

Grab this very good opportunity to own additional shares of MBT for FREE. Buy or hold your shares until August 28. The MORE shares you hold, the MORE shares you get for FREE!

Happy Investing!
