Sembcorp Marine Ltd (SGX: S51) and Sembcorp Industries Limited (SGX: U96) are going to separate. What are your thoughts?

Sembcorp Marine and Sembcorp Industries announced on 8 June 2020 that there'll be a rights issue to raise money for Sembcorp Marine and a demerger of the two companies. Do you like the deal?

This deal is definitely good for Sembcorp Industries holders!

For Sembcorp marine holders, not subscribing to the rights will dilute existing shares.

  3. As you can see, right after the Exercise was completed, SIA rebounded above $4.00 per share.

So based on these recent examples and huge financial backing from the Temasek, they have probably made their calculations.

SCM issuing shares for $0.20 per is unprecedented and it spooks investors but it should be a no-brainer for anyone with logic and sense.

Fingers crossed. ​​​

The whitewash resolution may not pass, and if it doesn't, the entire deal (SCI and SCM rights issue ...
