What is Right Entitlement?
As per NSE, a right is issued by a company to its shareholders on a pre-determined date called the record date. Rights entitlements are offered to shareholders as a ratio to the number of securities held on this record date. A shareholder may refuse to subscribe to the rights issue and just let the 'right' lapse. Alternatively, the shareholder can renounce/trade the entitlement in favour of another person for a price.
Regarding this, Dr. VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Sevices said, "Bharti Airtel's rights issue at Rs 535 a share is attractively priced considering the current market price of around Rs 730. The recent telecom package declared by the government addresses most of the issues that the industry has been facing for some time now. India's telecom industry is now practically a duopoly with Ril Jio and Bharti Airtel dominating the industry. Bharti's 35 crore customers, growing steadily, and the launch of 5 G shortly bode well for the company in the years ahead."
