BGL do not provide accounting or taxation advice. The following is designed to act as a guide for Simple Fund 360 users. It is not designed to be accounting or tax advice and should not be taken as a strict guideline. Other methods that are more suitable may be used instead of these steps.


National Australia Bank Limited (NAB) has exited its investment in CYBG Group (CYB) by demerging 75% of the CYB shares to NAB shareholders.

NAB shareholders are entitled to one CYB security for every four NAB shares they held as at the Scheme Record Date (05 February 2016).

The number of NAB shares held does not change as a result of the demerger.

For more information refer to the following:

The fund has 2,000 NAB shares.

  Date Purchased Number of Shares Cost
Parcel 1 08/08/2012 1,000 $30,000
Parcel 2 01/07/2013 1,000 $31,000

The fund is entitled to receive 500 (2000 / 4) CYB securities under the Demerger.

 If the number of units is not a whole number, the number needs to be rounded down to the nearest whole number - See CR 2016/13 Point 21.

Aggregate Value of the 500 CYB securities

= 500 CYB securities X $4.01 (market value) = $2,005 (See CR 2016/13 Point 37-38)

Reduction amount for the NAB shares = $2,005 or $1.0025/share (See CR 2016/13 Point 21)
