All contracts not exercised after this time, shall be abandoned.
Formula for Determination of Futures Quarterly Prices Resulting from Strip Options Exercise Upon exercise, the holder will receive four FEX Base Load Power Quarterly Futures contracts, at prices equivalent to the option strike price, after applying the current curve ratio determined from the previous Business Day's settlement price of the 4 quarterly future contracts underlying the relevant strip as outlined below:

FP = A x B/C

FP = Price allocated to each futures contract resulting from exercised Strip Option

A = the previous day's Settlement Price for the Contract Quarter for each individual future contract

B = Exercise price

C = Previous Day's implied Strip price, calculated as follows: Implied Strip price = F/G

F = a + b + c + d

a = 1st Quarter previous day's Settlement Price x megawatt hours for that quarter

b = 2nd Quarter previous day's Settlement Price x megawatt hours for that quarter

c = 3rd Quarter previous day's Settlement Price x megawatt hours for that quarter

d = 4th Quarter previous day's Settlement Price x megawatt hours for that quarter

I.e. Cal year Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4 and Fin year Q3, Q4, Q1, Q2

G = Total number of megawatt hours of all four future Contracts

The underlying futures contract with the longest dated expiry will be further adjusted up or down in increments of $0.01/MWh to the extent that such adjustments will achieve a more accurate implied Exercise Price, as calculated to 4 decimal places.
