Astrea V - Balloting Results


Astrea V announced its balloting results today. Unlike equity, the bonds will only start trading on this Friday, 21 June 2019.


As stated in their press release, all applications below $50k received some allocation and 75% of the $180m shares went to them, "reflecting the Issuer's desire to allocate to smaller retail investors".

I am pleasantly surprised at the 50% chance of being allocated a meaningful amount. To apply $50,000 and have a 50% chance of receiving $16,000 worth of bonds is definitely not a bad outcome. Those who applied for $1m shares now receives $50,000 rather than $11,000. That should at least make them "happier" for now. 😆 

As for me, I am really the "salty olive" ☹️ .... couldn't even get any at 50% chance 🤪


Congrats to those who got it! ... Make Astrea part of your bond ladder portfolio.

Assuming if tomorrow Astrea V trades at $1.06 on the SGX open market and if I buy 10 lots at $1.06, and assuming the online brokerage costs for this 10 lots purchase is $30,
is it the actual yield that I'm getting is 2.4365% if I buy 10 lots at $1.06 from the open market?

Becoz yearly dividend of $385 times 5 years is $1925 and if I buy 10 lots at $1.06 and redeem after 5 years means lost $600+$30 brokerage costs, so actual yield is (1925-600-30)/5/10630 =2.4365%

Hence is it the actual yield that I will get if I buy 10 lots Astrea V at $1.06 is 2.4365% ??

I subscribed for 49k via OCBC and wasn't alloted any shares. $49k was deducted from my bank account on 16 June with a $2 processing fee, and then $49k was refunded to me fully on 19 June, I'm checking with OCBC and Astrea V team if there was an error in processing, anybody encountered the same?

Mr. IPO said...

Yes. 2.4% sounds probably right. There is a good chance the bonus 0.5% will be paid at redemption as well

Mr. IPO said...

Did you apply twice or key wrong CDP account ? If you apply $49k and get nothing means your application is invalid.

Isn't the interest payout fixed at 3.85% for the first 5 years and only if they don't redeem at the end of 5 years then there is a additional step-up interest of 1% after the 5th year onwards?

Hence what is this "good chance the bonus 0.5% will be paid at redemption after 5 years" which you wrote?

Mr. IPO said...

The 0.5% of your principal amount is a one time payment made at redemption if Sponsor hits the Performance Threshold, ie receives 50% of its initial equity during the first 5 years. This has nothing to do with the 1% step up in interest rate. Hope that helps. Astrea III Class A-1 is a 3 year note and it met the threshold - so a 0.3% bonus will be paid in July this year.

By the way, if I buy 10 lots of the Temasek 2.7% Bond from the open market at $1.022 today and becos this 2.7% bond already paid out 1 dividend 2 months ago, is it the actual dividend yield that I will get is 2.098%?

Becos $270 yearly dividend times 4.5 years is $1215 and if I buy 10 lots at $1.022 today and redeem after 4.5 years means I lost $220 and $30 brokerage costs hence the actual yield that I get if I buy 10 lots of the 2.7% Temasek Bond at $1.022 today is ($1215-$220-$30)/4.5/10220 = 2.098% ?

So is it if I buy 10 lots of the Temasek 2.7% Bond from the open market at $1.022 today, then the actual yield that I am getting is 2.098%?

Mr. IPO said...

You would need to compute the yield to maturity from the point you buy. I think your computation is a ball park estimate which is fine. The most important thing is to remember that you are being redeemed at par at maturity. Sorry for the late reply.
