Companies such as McDonald's and Halliburton have recently used XigniteSplitOff to accurately price and execute complex, multi-billion dollar split-off transactions, and then to seamlessly update the posting of transaction terms on web sites that are launched specifically to support investor communication.
"A corporate split-off is a complex event where much occurs within a short period of time," said Stephane Dubois, CEO of Xignite. "Corporate IR teams just don't have the time to build an effective web site and worry about the accuracy of the data they will provide investors. XigniteSplitOff takes this whole burden off their shoulders. XigniteSplitoff is designed for use in any financial transaction to ensure flawless compliance at an affordable rate and with little development effort. Our work with recent customers on strategic, high profile transactions demonstrates our ability to get this solution up and running in a matter of days. These high value web services can make an entire organization more nimble in the face of tight schedules and technical mandates."
XigniteSplitOff provides a SEC regulatory-compliant method to disclose the final split-off transaction terms in a timely and cost effective manner, providing both individual and institutional investors equal access to that information from a custom investor web site. The solution dramatically reduces the burden on corporate finance and investor relations teams to master complex VWAP calculations and then to explain transaction mechanics to investors.
XigniteSplitOff provides substantial benefits for corporations undertaking split-off transactions. Among the major benefits of this solution:
- A customized and hosted web site providing complete information on the terms of the split-off;
- Flexible exchange offer and valuation periods for the purpose of calculating the exchange ratio;
- Customized calculation of the indicative exchange ratios using Xignite’s accurate daily VWAP data;
- Automated calculation of the final exchange ratio and display of the final offer terms instantaneously upon the offer's expiration;
- Archiving of the web site information for easy compliance with SEC regulations;
- Comprehensive monitoring, tracking, and reporting of site activity.
