Why are we being given this choice?
The Companies Act 2006 included new provisions regarding shareholder communications which came into force on 20 January 2007. At the AGM in 2008 the Company obtained shareholder approval to use this website more to communicate with shareholders.
What if I choose electronic communication and later want a paper version of something?
All shareholders have a right to request, at no extra charge, a paper copy of any shareholder document at any time by contacting the Company's Registrars, Equiniti, details below.
Can I change my mind about receiving documents electronically?
Yes, you can change your selection at any time by contacting the Company's Registrars Equiniti, details below. You can also manage your account online at www.shareview.co.uk.
How will I know when to look for new information?
When we issue a shareholder communication you will be sent an email alert containing a link to the relevant documents. If we receive notification that this email has not reached its intended recipient, we will mail a copy of the Notification of Availability to you.
When will the Annual report be available online?
The Company's Annual report will normally be available for viewing on our website at least one month before the scheduled AGM each year, which is normally held in May.
What if I change my email address?
Update your email address at www.shareview.co.uk. If we receive notification that an email address is no longer active, or that our email did not reach the recipient, we will post a hard copy of the Notification of Availability. This will be sent by post to the shareholder at their registered address. We will also send notification that the email sent failed to reach you and you should advise us of your up-to-date email address.
Will you use my email address for anything else?
You are signing up to the Shareview service from Equiniti. When you register at www.shareview.co.uk you will be able to state your preferences regarding the use of your email address.
