      america as fallen into since the 20`s. Though your role

      No life and history is full of irony for the people

      got was a business move of pure
      genius...the PHILIPS TRUST...from that it grew in

    • More importantly, however, people are suing over at Unilever? Who are the strike suit lawyers? Let's get it's payback time!!!

    • Now I'm not a tax lawyer, but I know this - It's
      NOT non-taxable.

      Best case it's capital gains,
      in which case you pay 20% (or whatever) of the
      amount above your basis. I don't know how you calculate
      your proportional share of your basis; I guess it
      would be something like $65 (or whatever the
      seize-price was) minus your basis per share for 2/25ths of
      your presplit holdings.

      Worst case it's
      ordinary income,as a dividend, taxable at 39.5%.

      It looks like this can be considered as a return of capital, and therefore no US tax. If you are game you can even try going for a loss: you got a $95.00 or so share and only got $ 60.00 for it.

    • Sorry if you don't find that useful: at the
      Unilever board, it takes a while to wade through the
      insults to find facts.
      The upshot is, some
      shareholders have filed suit over the Unilever 'seizeback'
      more commonly known as a reverse split; the basic
      argument is, why not just buy the shares back on the open
      market and let people choose whether they want to take
      gains now or later (i.e. determine their own taxes
      consequences). Here's the relevant passage from Philips' website
      about the taxes on the Philips buyback.

      each existing ordinary share surrendered, repayment of
      NLG 9.07 will be made as from 31 May 1999. This
      repayment of capital will not be subject to Dutch
      withholding tax. Shareholders who are indoubt as to their tax
      provision are advised to consult their own tax


    • I don't want to say a lot more about the tax
      issue because I don't understand it. There's a
      long-running debate about a similar 'seize back' at Unilever
      -- if you want information, you might start
      Guy With Brain: you'll like this guy Mike who posts

      NB There is a big difference between Philips and
      Unilever tho: The Philips deal definitely benefited all
      shareholders, just a question of how much. Unilever share price
      apparently fell so far investors actually lost money...
