If you are a certificated shareholder or Sharestore member, you should complete, sign and return a Scrip Dividend Mandate Form (PDF 216KB) and return it to Equiniti at the address on the form. If you are a CREST shareholder, you will need to submit a CREST Dividend Election Input Message to join the Programme.
For your election to apply to a particular dividend, your instructions must be received by Equiniti no later than 16:30 (UK time) on the election date for that dividend which will be a date before the payment date that will be announced as part of the announcement of the dividend. If your election is received after that time, it will not apply to that dividend but will apply to dividends paid thereafter (subject to Directors making the Programme available for each dividend).
Once your election to join the Programme has been received and accepted by Equiniti, it will remain in place for all future dividends where the Programme is offered, until you give Equiniti an instruction to cancel your participation.
