Shareholders are requested to inform the company's registrar, Computershare Investor Services PLC, of their intention to elect to receive cash dividends in Euro currency, on 0870 702 0129 or, alternatively, complete the scrip dividend form of election/notice of entitlement as appropriate.
For further details please contact the Company's Registrars at Computershare Investor Services PLC, PO Box 82, The Pavilions, Bridgwater Road, Bristol, BS99 7NH. Telephone +44 (0) 870 702 0129.
Payment of dividends by BACS
Many shareholders have already arranged for dividends to be paid by mandate directly to their bank or building society account. The Company mandates dividends through the BACS (Bankers’ Automated Clearing Services) system. The benefit to shareholders of the BACS payment method is that the Registrar posts the tax vouchers directly to them, whilst the dividend is credited on the payment date to the shareholder’s bank or building society account. Shareholders who have not yet arranged for their dividends to be paid direct to their bank or building society account and wish to benefit from this service should request the Company’s Registrar to send them a Dividend/Interest mandate form or alternatively complete the mandate form attached to their dividend tax voucher.
Global Payments Service
This service provided by Kingfisher’s Registrar enables shareholders to have dividend payments paid directly into their bank account in their chosen local currency. To view terms and register, please visit www.computershare.com/uk/investor/GPS.
