Handling the correction needed to the Westfield corporate actions
Last month we sent you an email to help you handle the Unibail-Rodamco Acquisition of Westfield Corporation. Since we sent that email more documentation has been released that means the corporate action has to be handled differently within Sharesight.
We have created this step by step guide to help you make the changes needed in your Sharesight portfolio. We’re sorry for the inconvenience.

¹ Rounding from 0.01844. The number of New Unibail-Rodamco Stapled Shares underlying the New Unibail-Rodamco CDIs that a Westfield Securityholder is entitled to receive is subject to rounding.
² Based on an exchange ratio of 20 New Unibail-Rodamco CDIs for each New Unibail-Rodamco Stapled Share that a Westfield Securityholder is entitled to receive.

27 - The ‘Average cost per share’ is $1.35
To workout the ‘Cost Base’ calculate AUD$1.3527 x number of OMN shares held on Scheme Record Date= Your Cost base
Example: If you owned 10 OMN as of the scheme record date, the ‘Cost base’ is $13.527 = 200 WFD shares / 20 = 10 OMN Shares x AUD$1.3527
28 - Type ‘Quantity’ as 1 OneMarket share for every 20 Westfield shares’ they hold as at the Demerger Record Date.
“If, as a result of this calculation, the number of OneMarket Shares is not a whole number, the number will be rounded up to the nearest whole number of OneMarket Shares.” As stated in the Demerger Booklet
