Getting planned delisting date for a given corporate action

There recently was a merger with AXE^F20 and WCC.N last week which I missed due to the Ex-Date in the Datascope report being 9/30/2020. I'm guessing this is an estimate, given the vague nature of AXE^F20 past investor relations documents.

So is there a way to see planned delisting date for a given merger within the Datascope reports? AXE^F20 got delisted on Monday(6/22/2020) and this was announced on Friday(6/19/2020). I can provide the the excel file download from Datascope.

Hi @gabriel31,

Not a content expert. You may identify the delist date using Deal Effective Date in corporate action event. If this doesn't fit your requirement, please contact the DSS content support team via MyRefinitiv Get Support.

Below is the sample of On demand request for corporate active report template.

{
  "ExtractionRequest": {
    "@odata.type": "#ThomsonReuters.Dss.Api.Extractions.ExtractionRequests.CorporateActionsStandardExtractionRequest",
    "ContentFieldNames": [
        "Company RIC",
        "Company Role",
        "Company Role Description",
        "Deal Announcement Date",
        "Deal Cancel Date",
        "Deal Close Date",
        "Deal Effective Date",
        "Deal ID",
        "Deal Revised Proposal Date",
        "Deal Status",
        "Deal Status Description",
        "Deal SubType",
        "Deal SubType Description",
        "Deal Type",
        "Deal Type Description",
        "Deal Value",
        "Deal Value Currency"
    ],
    "IdentifierList": {
      "@odata.type": "#ThomsonReuters.Dss.Api.Extractions.ExtractionRequests.InstrumentIdentifierList",
      "InstrumentIdentifiers": [
          { "Identifier": "WCC.N", "IdentifierType": "Ric" }
      ]
    },
    "Condition": {
      "ReportDateRangeType": "Last",
      "PreviousDays": -1,
      "IncludeMergersAndAcquisitionsEvents": true
    }
  }
}

This will give the details of the deal.

{
   ...
            "IdentifierType": "Ric",
            "Identifier": "WCC.N",
            "Company RIC": "AXE.F",
            "Company Role": "TAR",
            "Company Role Description": "Target",
            "Deal Announcement Date": "2019-12-24",
            "Deal Cancel Date": null,
            "Deal Close Date": "2020-06-22",
            "Deal Effective Date": "2020-06-22",
            "Deal ID": "1510878",
            "Deal Revised Proposal Date": null,
            "Deal Status": "COMPLETE",
            "Deal Status Description": "Complete",
            "Deal SubType": null,
            "Deal SubType Description": null,
            "Deal Type": "MAA",
            "Deal Type Description": "Mergers & Acquisitions",

Thanks @veerapath.rungruengrayubkul That is kinda what I'm looking for, but the change in the Effective Date showed up on Datascope after the event had occurred. The Effective Date on 6/22/2020 for our daily download from Datascope, was "9/30/2020". So it doesn't really help with preemptively taking action before the actual corporate event.

Hi @gabriel31,

It seems that the event was not on schedule. I'm not sure if you can see this RIC delist event in the RIC Maintenance Report where DataScope Select databases refresh by early maintenance reports that occur before market opening per region. You can find example and more information in this tutorial and article.

Anyway, I would suggest you contact the DSS product support team via MyRefinitiv Get Support. for further discussion on this event.
