Adjustments in F&O contracts of BANKBARODA on account of extraordinary dividend

The Board of Directors of BANKBARODA declared a dividend of Rs. 5.50/- per share, the ex-dividend date being, June 30th, 2023.

SEBI has prescribed a framework to the exchanges for adjustment of corporate actions in derivative contracts at the time of the corporate action. The exchange has published everything regarding the adjustments in case of corporate actions here . Accordingly, if a company declares a dividend at and above 2% of the market value of the underlying security, it is considered as extra-ordinary dividend and the exchange will take actions in the adjustment of the futures and options contracts in the underlying security.

Since the dividend declared by BANKBARODA is above 2% of the market value of the security, the exchange has published this circular on the adjustment of F&O contracts in BANKBARODA on the ex-date: June 30th, 2023.

Adjustment for future contracts:

All positions in futures contracts of BANKBARODA will be marked-to-market on the last cum-dividend date i.e. June 28, 2023, based on the daily settlement price of the respective futures contract. Subsequently, open positions will be carried forward at the daily settlement price less Rs. 5.50 (dividend amount) for the respective futures contract.

From June 30, 2023 (ex-dividend date), daily mark-to-market settlement of the futures contracts would continue as per normal procedures.

For example:

Assume you bought 1 lot (5850 quantity) of BANKBARODA futures on June 28, 2023, at Rs. 100 and the daily settlement price at the market close is Rs. 120, you would have made a mark-to-market profit of Rs. 20 per share.

On June 30, 2023, the previous day’s position will be carried forward at Rs. 114.50 (i.e. 120 - 5.50). If the closing price on June 30th is Rs. 118, you’ll make a mark-to-market profit of Rs. 3.50 per share.

Adjustment for options contracts:

The full value of the dividend i.e. Rs. 5.50 will be deducted from all the cum-dividend strike prices on the ex-dividend date. All positions in existing strike prices will continue to exist in the corresponding new adjusted strike prices.

For example:

The strike price of Rs. 120 Call Option will be reduced to Rs. 114.50 on June 30, 2023, and the positions in Rs. 120 Call Option will continue to exist in Rs. 114.50 Call Option.

The lot size of the F&O contracts will not change.

Also, if you hold equity shares of BANKBARODA in your Demat account as of June 30, 2023 (ex-date) you will be entitled to receive the dividend which will be credited directly to your primary bank account within 30 to 45 days from the record date.

What if I sell Future contract of BOB at Rs 100 on 28th june around 3:15 PM and square off on 30th morning? Will I get 5 Points Profit? Since the future contract are still trading higher than cash market right now, so Future will adjust as well on 30th june.

I want to know if I take delivery of stocks by doing a ITM PE sell on 28th, will I be eligible for dividend ?

What do you mean by taking delivery of stock by doing ITM PE sell? Future and options have nothing to do with Delivery of stocks

I mean, instead of buying stocks directly if I sell a put of lets say 195 tomorrow and the stocks closes at 192 then my puts will be ITM and I would be delivered stocks for the lots that I have sold. I want to know if I will get dividend on those stocks as I am not sure when those stocks will be delivered (either on 30 or after that)
