Calculation of voting rights (clients)

This section has no associated Explanatory Memorandum

69.—(1) For the purposes of this Chapter, a client’s voting rights are calculated according to the value of the client’s claim submitted under rule 68(1)(a) taking into account any shortfall identified prior to the meeting.

(2) Subject to paragraph (4), the chair is to value any securities making up the client’s claim under paragraph (1) by reference to the closing or settlement price for such securities of a particular description.

(3) In paragraph (2)—

“closing or settlement price” means—

(a)

in relation to securities traded on a relevant exchange, the closing or settlement price published by that exchange; and

(b)

in relation to securities traded elsewhere, the closing or settlement price published by an appropriate pricing source,

on the last business day before the date the investment bank entered special administration; but where such securities are traded outside the United Kingdom, the closing or settlement price shall be the most recent closing price before that date; and

“securities of a particular description” has the meaning set out in regulation 12(9);

and in this paragraph—

“appropriate pricing source” means a reputable source used by the investment bank immediately prior to the investment bank entering special administration for valuing or reporting in respect of those securities, unless the client asserts with good reason (and the chair agrees) that an alternative source should be used; and

“relevant exchange” means a recognised investment exchange or recognised overseas investment exchange used by the investment bank to trade such securities immediately prior to the investment bank entering special administration, unless the client asserts with good reason (and the chair agrees) that an alternative exchange should be used.

(4) Where the chair considers that it is not practicable to value a client asset by reference to a closing or settlement price published by a relevant exchange or an appropriate pricing source, the chair may put upon the asset an estimated minimum value for the purposes of the entitlement to vote.

(5) Where client assets are quoted in currencies other than sterling, in order to value the assets for the purposes of this Chapter, the administrator shall convert the market price of the assets to sterling at the rate of exchange for that other currency as at the mean of the buying and selling spot rates prevailing in the London market as published at the close of business on the business day prior to the date of the investment bank entering special administration, or in the absence of any such published rate, such rate as the court determines.
