You must read this report if you have ALTERRA CAPITAL PARTNERS (ALT) so you don’t get shocked on what is bound to happen.

In a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange, Alterra Capital has informed the Exchange of their amendment of their Articles of Incorporation. The amendment is in conjunction with the change of control and management of the company. The company perceives the change in name as beneficial because of the brand name recognition of Philab. The change of secondary purpose to include the power to guarantee is being made to enable the company to financially support or lend its financial standing to its subsidiaries for capital-raising purposes.

The change in address is also in connection with the change in control and management. The company is seen to benefit from the use of the facilities already in place in the said office.

There is also a stipulation of the denial of pre-emptive rights. Pre-emptive rights are rights of existing shareholders to purchase additional shares whenever the company conducts new offering of their sales. Existing shareholders are given the right to purchase proportionate shares as to not dilute their current holdings. They may choose to avail of their right or forfeit such right. With the denial of this right, existing shareholders might run the risks of getting their shareholdings diluted.

The company, however, views this as a positive stipulation since they would be able to raise capital in an faster manner through private placements, placing and subscription transactions, and even public offerings.

The change in par value is seen by management to improve liquidity since total number of shares would increase from 400 million shares to 8 billion shares after the change takes into effect.

The change in the authorized capital stock was increased to accommodate future offerings for future growth opportunities.

Here is a complete list of the changes that will take effect after the amendment:

  1. Change of corporate name from “Alterra Capital Partners, Inc.” to “Philab Holdings Corp.”
  2. Change of secondary purpose to include the power to guarantee
  3. Change of principal office address to the 8th Floor 1128 38th Avenue, Fort Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City, Metro Manila
  4. Denial of pre-emptive rights
  5. Change in par value from Php0.05 to Php0.25
  6. Increase in authorized capital stock from P20 million to P2 billion

Notable changes immediately on the name change:

  1. Change in stock code (No details yet)
  2. Your existing number of shares will decrease by a factor of 5. (e.g. from 500 shares to 100 shares).
  3. Stock price the day before the name change will increase by a factor of 5. (e.g. If the price the day before the name change is 3.56, the price on the next day should adjust to 17.8).

Daily Chart

While ALT is closer to its resistance (near 3.75) than to its support (near 2.60), volume has been low since the past 7 trading days. If you are familiar with the price-volume relationship, you know that the ascent of price is highly likely to be sustained if volume is high.

On the other side, MACD is bullish. The price is moving above the 10SMA, and the 10SMA is moving above the 20SMA. On a short-term time horizon, I’d say that  ALT is in a bullish state. On a long-term scale, ALT must go beyond 4.10 to re-enter the bullish territory.

Know that ALT consolidated between the support and resistance levels I’ve mentioned for more than 15 months (January 2015 to March 2016). ALT moved back in that range last September 2016.
