The timeline for requesting a review and providing relevant documents as part of that request is set out in clause 3.4 of the Settlement Distribution Scheme which can accessed on www.dshscheme.com.au.

Unless relevant documents are provided by a Participating Group Member by 11:59 pm AEST on 17 June 2021, the Scheme Administrator is entitled to adjudicate on your Review Request based on the documents provided by that time.

If the outcome of a review under clause 3.4 in which the Participating Group Member’s Assessment does not increase, or does not increase by more than 10%, over the amount set out in the Settlement Notice, the Scheme Administrator may, in his absolute discretion, deduct the Scheme Administrator’s costs (or estimated costs) of conducting the review from the relevant Participating Group Member’s Scheme Payment.

Your loss was calculated using the methodology set out in Schedule 1 of the Settlement Distribution Scheme. It is the sum of weighted average of the inflation loss and transaction loss for each parcel of DSH shares purchased between 14 November 2013 and 3 January 2016. For more details of the specific weightings, please refer to Schedule 1 of the Settlement Distribution Scheme. “Inflation Loss” and “No Transaction Loss” are defined below.

Inflation Loss is the difference in artificial inflation of a parcel of DSH shares purchased and sold on a particular date. The artificial inflation is calculated as the amount (positive or negative) in which the actual price per share exceeds the share price outlined in Schedule 2 for the date of purchase plus interest from the date of purchase. The same methodology is then replicated for a sale of DSH shares and the difference of the two outputs is then multiplied by a scaling factor pertaining to a certain criterion set out in Clause 2b of Schedule 1 of the Settlement Distribution Scheme.

No Transaction Loss for a parcel of DSH shares is the purchase price less sale price less dividends, with interest being applicable in each, multiplied by a flat 60% scaling factor. Brokerage, stamp duty, and other transaction fees and costs are ignored in determining the purchase or sale price of the DSH shares. A Registered Group Member is deemed to have received a dividend of the Amount per DSH Shares set out in Clause 2e of Schedule 1 of the SDS with the record date less 3 business days used as the cut-off.

Interest rates between 14 November 2013 and 7 December 2020 are outlined in Clause 3 of Schedule 1 of the Settlement Distribution Scheme.

As a fixed rate cannot be extrapolated due to the differing interest rates from period to period, daily interest rates were calculated for each respective period from the stated interest rates.

The “last in, first out” method is adopted as per Clause 2(d)(iii) of Schedule 1 the Settlement Distribution Scheme.

The Scheme Administrator will provide you with a Settlement Notice on 28 May 2021. Registration and requests for review of the Loss Amount calculation are open until 11:59 pm AEST on 17 June 2021.

Once adjudications and requests of reviews are completed, the Scheme Payments are expected to be made no-later-than 31 August 2021.

Please send an email to FTI Consulting at dshscheme@fticonsulting.com quoting your passcode and name in the subject line (e.g. F12345678 – John Smith). It would also be helpful if you could also add a couple of words in the subject line, explaining the nature of your query.
