How to convert 30,000,000,000 of 1sen into million? We just take away 2 zero, that will be RM300 million. Now a day, if we saw a 10sen coin on the floor, we will not even bend down to pick it up, further more if it is a 1sen coin!! So what is this bargain about?
The trick is to tie this ICPS/ICULS with mother share future intrinsic value (exercise price). If the mother share appreciate, this convertible preference shares/loan stocks will appreciate in tandem.
Below are examples of few issuances of this 1sen bargain.
NOVAMSC-PA at 8sen around 700% gain off this 1sen issuance.
AGES-PA at 3sen around 200% gain off this 1sen issuance.
NI HSIN-PA at 4.5sen 350% gain off this 1sen issuance. (Today listing)
ARBB-PA at 15sen around1400% gain off this 1sen issuance.
As we can observe, this issuances are usually by penny stocks with very low downside. How low downside can this 1sen drop? The upside, as seen in ARBB-PA, can be quite high.

I am not so sure on the adjustment of ICPS AGES-PA exercise price; hope some one can advise.
Please correct me if I have made some wrong interpretation.
Caution 2: Due to the AGES ICPS/ICULS close gap and issuing size, the risk of investing could be quite high. Please seek expert advise.
