|Ex-corporate action dates and Adjusted closing prices in historical price tables and Graphs|
Price adjustments for the distribution of benefits arising from corporate actions
Record date (cum date) – the day at which day's end the list of stake holders entitled to a benefit (dividend, stock dividend, interest, etc.). This is the date on which an investor must be listed as the owner of the security in order to enjoy the benefit (dividends, rights, interest payment, etc.). The actual payment or delivery of rights date comes later, and the security holder on the record date will receive the benefit even if the securities were sold in the interim period.
Ex date – The trading day starting from which those purchasing the security is not entitled to the dividends/stock dividends, interest, rights, etc.
On the ex-date, due to the distribution of a benefit (dividend, rights, interest, etc.) to security holders, the price of the security is lowered by the amount of the gross benefit. The adjusted price (ex-price) constitutes the security's base price on the ex-date. The objective of this system is to neutralize the effect of the benefit given to the holders of securities on the TASE indices.
Ex-price calculation example
Share price before the “ex” was equal to 120 ag. Dividend of a gross 20 ag. was distributed. Share ex-price equals 120-20 = 100 ag.
Types of "ex" events
The following table summarizes the types of "ex" events indicated in the historical price data tables:
Type of ex
A share traded 'ex-dividend' (without dividend) is traded without the right to receive the dividend payment.
A share traded 'ex-dividend' (without rights) is traded without the right to receive the rights.
A bond traded 'ex-interest' (without coupon) is traded without the right to receive the interest payment.
Ex-coupon and Partial Redemption
Ex C PR
A bond included in the Tel Bond indices, traded 'ex-interest and partial redemption' (without coupon and partial redemption), is traded without the right to receive the interest payment and partial redemption.
A share traded 'ex-stock dividend' (without bonus shares) is traded without the right to receive the dividend payment, for which the record date entitling shareholders to the stock dividend was the day preceding the ex-date.
A security traded 'ex technical correction' is traded after a technical price correction, which changed the price without affecting the security's rate of return relative to the period preceding the correction.
After Consolidation/ Reduction of Capital
A security traded 'ex-equity unification/reverse split' undertaken by the company.
The ex coefficient is the fraction received by dividing the ex-price of a security by the reference price on the trading day preceding the ex date).
The coefficient enables one to compare prices and calculate the return on securities during periods in which an ex-event occurred.
Adjusted price - Historical Data and Graphs on the TASE website
On the TASE web site, security “Historical Prices” tab (not including the mutual funds), one can view the “Ex” coefficient on the ex-date as well as securities prices adjusted to the coefficient.
Security "Charts" Tab - Securities data charts (not including the mutual funds) display the adjusted closing prices. Chart data exports a spread sheet including the adj. price and the closing price.
