Corporate action processed by KSEI is divided into:
- Mandatory Corporate Action
- Voluntary Corporate Action
MANDATORY CORPORATE ACTION
Mandatory Corporate Action is Corporate Action (CA) that does not necessitate action or instruction from Account Holder to obtain CA rights through C-BEST.
Account Holder only receives CA rights from the Issuer conducting the activity. Types of CA in this category are:
- Payment of Bonds Coupon
Account Holder is entitled to Bonds coupon of its ownership until record date. Upon payment [due] date, C-BEST will automatically distribute the dividend to the accounts of beneficiaries based on record date’s list of the aforementioned Bond dividend’s disbursement.
- Bonds’ Payment
Payment of the Bonds’ nominal value will be made upon its maturity. KSEI will deliver a list of bondholders – which are the list of parties who hold Bonds’ ownership to the maturity date – to Issuers/Registrars. Issuers will then deliver the related payment funds to KSEI.
DThe distribution of Bonds’ payment will be made to the entitled Account Holders following KSEI’s receipt of funds from the Issuers/Registrars.
- Cash Dividend
Cash Dividend will be distributed by KSEI to the Account Holders or Sub Account Holders in possession of shares on recording date. The system will calculate the sum of tax and net cash dividend based on the tax level applied upon each Account Holder.
Issuer will deliver total net cash dividend following receipt of payment confirmation from KSEI. Upon distribution date, the KSEI System will distribute cash dividend into the entitled Account Holders’ accounts.

Share Dividend will be distributed to Account Holders or Sub Account Holders in possession of shares on recording date. The system will calculate the amount of share dividend, including tax to be borne by each Account Holder.

- Bonus Share
The handling of bonus shares is similar to that of Share Dividend disregarding tax.
- Warrant Distribution

This distribution of warrants is a meant for Account Holders in possession of shares upon recording date. The system will calculate the amount of warrants to be received by each Account Holder based on a ratio informed by the Issuer to KSEI.
