Dividend Reinvestment Plan

As part of the business to be considered at this year’s Annual General Meeting, the board of directors of the Company is recommending for approval by shareholders a final dividend payment of 3.4 pence per ordinary share for the year ended 30 September 2016. The Company is offering shareholders a choice of a share alternative to a cash dividend through the launch of its Dividend Reinvestment Plan (the “DRIP”) for the current dividend proposed and in respect of dividends declared in the future. The DRIP is provided by our Registrars, Capita Asset Services, and offers a convenient way for shareholders to increase their shareholding in the Company by using dividend money to purchase additional shares in the Company. Shareholders will be sent an information pack in relation to the DRIP containing an invitation letter, the DRIP Terms and Conditions and a Shareholder Dividend Form.
