Registrar

Any enquiries concerning your shareholding should be addressed to the Company’s registrar. The registrar should be notified promptly of any change in a shareholder’s address or other details: Capita Asset Services, The Registry, 34 Beckenham Road, Beckenham BR3 4TU, tel: 0871 664 0300, lines are open 8.30am to 5.30pm Monday–Friday. The registrar’s website is www.capitashareportal.com. This will give you access to your personal shareholding by means of your investor code which is printed on your share certificate or statement of holding. A user ID and password will be sent to you once you have registered on the site.

Shareholder security

Shareholders are advised to be wary of any unsolicited advice, offers to buy shares at a discount, or offers of free reports about the Company. Details of any share dealing facilities that the Company endorses will be included in Company mailings or on our website. More detailed information can be found at www.moneyadviceservice.org.uk.

Payment of dividends

Shareholders may find it more convenient to make arrangements to have dividends paid direct into their bank account. The advantages of this are that the dividend is credited to a shareholder’s bank account on the payment date, there is no need to present cheques for payment and there is no risk of cheques being lost in the post. To set up a dividend mandate or to change an existing mandate, please contact Capita Registrars, our registrar, whose contact details appear on this page.

Share dealing services

The sale or purchase of shares must be done through a stockbroker or share dealing service provider. The London Stock Exchange provides a “Locate a broker” facility on its website which gives details of a number of companies offering share dealing services. For more information, please visit the private investors section at www.londonstockexchange.com. Please note that the Directors of the Company are not seeking to encourage shareholders to either buy or to sell shares. Shareholders in any doubt about that action to take are recommended to seek financial advice from an independent financial adviser authorised pursuant to the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000.
