Monday 07 September 2020: Effective start of trading on 07 September 2020, the scheduled changes will be
"locked down" across the FTSE/JSE Indexes, with no further corrections applied this quarter*.
*During the quarterly review / annual reconstitution lock-down period, FTSE Russell will generally avoid implementing corrections to ensure stability during
the period prior to the review / reconstitution implementation. However egregious shares and free float errors discovered within the lock-down period or during
the week following the review / reconstitution may be corrected if an erroneous change compromises the replicability of the index OR if the change places
potential price pressure on the company OR if there is a material error of 50% or greater (relative) to index shares. An y corrections during the lock-down
period or the week following the review will be implemented with appropriate notice. All other shares and free float errors will be corrected at the following
quarterly index review.
Monday 21 September 2020: From start of trading on 21 September 2020 the quarterly changes will become
effective within the FTSE/JSE Indexes.
Stocks Suspended during the Review Period: Constituents which are suspended on Friday 04 September 2020*
will not have their scheduled review changes implemented regardless of a resumption of trade prior to the review
effective date. The scheduled review changes will be implemented T+2 after the review effective date, at the earliest,
upon resumption of trade.
If an active constituent suspends on or prior to Wednesday 16 September 2020, the scheduled review changes will
be reversed and applied T+2 after the resumption of trade (T+2 after the review effective date, at the earliest). If a
suspension occurs on 17 September 2020 or 18 September 2020, the review changes will proceed as previously
*If there is a confirmed resumption of trade date which occurs prior to the review effective date, the review changes
will proceed as scheduled.
**in exceptional circumstances, it may be deemed necessary to reverse the review changes when a company suspends
on 17 or 18 September 2020.
Long Term Suspended Stocks: Constituents that have been suspended for 60 or more days on or before Friday 21
August 2020, will be deleted from the index in conjunction with the index review (at zero price). However, if the
constituent subsequently resumes trading on or prior to Friday 04 September 2020 the deletion will be rescinded
and the constituent will remain within the index if otherwise eligible. If the constituent resumes trading on or after 07
September 2020, it will still be removed in conjunction with the review (at market price if an active replicable market
exists - otherwise it will be removed at zero).
Equity Offerings: In accordance with standard methodology, primary and secondary offerings will continue to be
applied with two days' notice when discovered after the review announcement date. However, offerings which would
ordinarily become effective at the open on the Tuesday - Friday prior to the review will instead be implemented
simultaneously in conjunction with the review effective date on 21 September 2020 (open). Offerings discovered on
the Thursday and Friday prior to the review will be implemented with two days' notice and therefore subsequent to
