Register for electronic communication

To sign up to the Computershare website, please select from the links below according to the location in which your shares are registered:

The documents we currently make available by email are: Annual Report and Accounts; Strategic Report; Interim Report; notices of shareholders’ meetings and dividend circulars. Notifications of your dividend entitlement will also be emailed to you.

Receiving corporate communications by email is more environmentally friendly and cost-effective than sending printed copies in the post.

You may revoke your registration or request a printed copy of any shareholder communication from the Registrars, at any time.

Please note that in certain circumstances we may be unable to send documents by email, for example, due to local laws that may restrict this. In such cases, we reserve the right to send printed copies of the relevant document or information.

If you have not supplied an email address or registered to be sent hard copies, we will notify you by post when shareholder documents become available on this website.

Providing your bank account details for dividend payments

If you are in the United Kingdom, United States or Hong Kong and you receive your dividends in UK sterling, US dollars or Hong Kong dollars* (*shareholders on the Hong Kong Overseas Branch register only) please send a letter to our registrars with your bank account details including your ABA/ACH number. We will pay your dividends into your bank account.

How can I give my dividend instructions electronically?

The most secure approach is to do this online via www.investorcentre.co.uk (if you hold shares on the Hong Kong Overseas Branch register, please use www.investorcentre.com/hk). Once registered you can perform a range of self-service options across your portfolio and manage your shareholding online.

If you are already registered for Investor Centre, go to Investor Centre and enter your User ID and Password. Once logged in, select the tab ‘Update my Details’ followed by the option ‘Bank Instructions Update’.

If you are not already registered with Investor Centre and would like to register, go to Investor Centre and click on the ‘Register’ button. Then follow the on-screen prompts.
