EMA.PR.E Crashes On Settlement But Volume Good

EMA.PR.A is a Straight Perpetual, 4.50%, announced May 30.

The issue traded 194,975 shares today in a range of 23.28-20 (!) before closing at 23.60-65, 100×500. I assume the underwriters are taking a bath on this issue. Sadly for them, they fully exercised their greenshoe of 1-million shares, taking the issue size up to $125-million; of which about 6% has just evaporated.

EMA.PR.E will be tracked by HIMIPref™ but assigned to the Scraps index on credit concerns. Vital statistics are:
