Scrip dividend

It was announced on 25 July 2016 that an interim dividend would be paid on 9 September 2016 to shareholders on the register on 5 August 2016. As in previous years, a scrip dividend alternative will be offered. The reference price will not be set until the election period closes.

For those shareholders or depositary interest holders who elect for the scrip dividend alternative the scrip reference share price will be announced after the election period ends, on 22 August 2016.

The final date for receipt of elections by the registrars for the scrip dividend alternative is 12 August 2016. Shareholders who have previously elected for the scrip dividend alternative and wish to continue to receive their dividend in the form of shares need take no further action. Scrip mandate forms will be posted to those shareholders who have not already elected for the scrip dividend alternative on 11 July 2016. Depositary Interest Holders will need to make a fresh election via the CREST system in respect of this dividend in order to receive the scrip dividend alternative.

Shareholders who have not already elected for scrip can request a mandate form from the registrars by calling ++00 44(0) 371 664 0321. Calls are charged at the standard geographic rate and will vary by provider. Calls outside the United Kingdom will be charged at the applicable international rate. The helpline is open between 9.00 am – 5.30 pm (UK time) Monday to Friday excluding public holidays in England and Wales. Please note that Capita Asset Services cannot provide any financial, legal or tax advice and calls may be recorded and monitored for security and training purposes.

As a result of the Finance Act 2016, the UK tax treatment of scrip dividends has changed and this is explained in the Scrip Circular 2016, which is available at the link below.
