Got my cheque too yesterday - took max cash and got the $13.88 cash per AAN shares and no BBI, BBP and BBP but did get the APA and BBI pref shares as I outlined in my previous post. The APA shares are part divvy (i.e with the franking credit which I will get off the ATO next year) and a capital return.

To Suti:
I took the default which should give me $8.948 per share in the cash component.
This was said to have been posted on Friday Sept 7th but I have not received it by Wed 12th.
Post has not arrived yet on Thursday.

Hi Toline,
I was referring to the announcement from the other day. Did not look like small parcel holders to me.

As you say the deal is complex. I took the cash deal and have yet to see the cheque. As I understand it the assumption for cash in the BNB offer was that if everyone went for the default option then the cash component would be $8.948. Actually shareholders were given various options and a lot of them took maximum script so that they did not have to pay CGT. Since I am in an allocated pension then CGT does not apply and I took maximum cash. What it seems is that a cash pool was created which was $8.948 times the number of Alinta shares on the market. Since many of the shareholders wanted script then this left a large amount of cash for those like me who did not want the BNB funds. The APA shares were not part of the script/cash trade off (since the APA shares carry the 40c franking credit). As a consequent I think for each of my Alinta shares I will end up with $1.1744 in APA shares, a 40c franking credit, $13.88 cash and about 7c in BBI preference shares (i.e $15.52 in total).

I think the sales of AAN will be the small holdings (under 1000 shares) and foreign shareholders (i.e ineligible shareholders) since Alinta have said they would sell these on the market

I don't understand something ............... the last trade for AAN was 17 August. How can a "substantial holder" trade their stocks like it has today. sad.gif

My understanding was that AAN holders had several options for them which closed a few weeks ago.

Can someone please shine a light on this.

i have a few alinta holdings under different registrations.
i don't know how many kilos of documents have hit the mailbox.
i bet many holders have never opened any of them.
the financial engineers that have been paid big money to stuff this should be ashamed.
who needs this hassle?. i should dump on market.
