In a significant development today, Sygnia Itrix Collective Investment Scheme announced the partial delisting of securities for its flagship product, the Sygnia Itrix MSCI Emerging Markets 50 ETF (JSE Code: SYGEMF, ISIN: ZAE000297792). This move, effective immediately, is part of the ETF’s ongoing efforts to strategically manage its portfolio and maximize returns for investors.
With an approximate price of ZAR 16.13 per security, a total of 3,687,500 SYGEMF securities will be delisted from the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE). This action is anticipated to optimize the ETF’s composition and enhance overall shareholder value. Following the partial delisting, the total number of SYGEMF securities in circulation will be reduced to 142,235,965.
The Sygnia Itrix MSCI Emerging Markets 50 ETF, managed by Sygnia Asset Management, is a registered portfolio within the Sygnia Itrix Collective Investment Scheme in Securities. Operating in accordance with the regulations outlined in the Collective Investment Schemes Control Act, 45 of 2002, the scheme offers investors exposure to a diversified portfolio of emerging market equities.
This partial delisting carries implications for investors and the broader market. By reducing the supply of securities, it is expected to generate increased demand, which could potentially impact the liquidity and pricing dynamics of SYGEMF securities. As a result, investors are advised to consult with their financial advisors or brokers to understand the implications and adjust their investment strategies accordingly.
