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 Capita IRG Trustees Ltd, allows you to use your cash dividend to buy shares.

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

The Company’s Registrars, Capita Registrars (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 10p per minute plus network extras) or +44 20 8639 3399 from overseas so they can put a “stop” on that certificate.
