3. Is there a Dividend Reinvestment Plan?

You can elect to receive future dividends as shares rather than cash by participating in the Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP). This service, provided by Link Asset Services, allows you to use your cash dividend to buy shares.

This is not a recommendation to buy shares and this service may not be suitable for all investors. Terms, conditions and risks apply. Link Market Services Trustees Ltd is authorised and regulated by the Financial Services Authority.

4. What do I do if I have lost my share certificate?

The Company’s Registrars, Link Market Services (Jersey) Limited, keep a record of your name, address and the number of shares that you own and can arrange to issue a duplicate certificate if necessary.

If you have lost a certificate please report this to the Registrars, as soon as possible on 0871 664 0300

(calls cost 12p per minute plus network extras) or +44 (0) 371 664 0300 from overseas so they can put a “stop” on that certificate.

Before a replacement certificate can be issued, you will be sent a Letter of Indemnity to complete should a dispute arise over ownership at a later stage.
