Kingfisher are changing how we pay dividends

At our 2017 AGM, shareholders approved changes to our articles which included changes to the method by which Kingfisher pays dividends.

Following this decision, the Board agreed to cease payment of dividends via cheque, beginning with the Interim Dividend payment in November 2018. From this point, all cash dividends will be paid through direct payment to shareholder bank accounts.

The Board believes that this change is in the best interests of the Company and our shareholders, and is the method of paying dividends we have encouraged for many years.

Shareholders currently in receipt of dividends via cheque will need to notify our Registrar, Computershare, of their preferred payment option. Please note that this change does not affect those shareholders who receive their Kingfisher dividends by direct credit already, or those subscribed to the Dividend Reinvestment Plan ("DRIP").

You must notify Computershare of your preferred payment option as soon as possible, and no later than 1 October 2018. If we do not receive confirmation of your preferred payment option by this date, your dividend will be retained until confirmation has been received. Details of the payment options available following this change are available on the payment options page.

See our FAQs document for more information on the above change.
