Dividend Reinvestment Plan
We have decided to end the Scrip Dividend Scheme (the ‘Scrip’) and, as an alternative, to offer you the chance to join a new Dividend Reinvestment Plan (the ‘DRIP’). Under the Scrip, new shares were issued and allotted to participating members. Under the DRIP, existing shares are bought in the market through a special dealing arrangement. This removes the potential dilution for existing holdings and provides an efficient and convenient reinvestment option without the issue of new shares.
To reinvest your dividend you will need to sign up for the DRIP. The Terms and Conditions and mandate form are available on request from the Company's Registrars, Capita Asset Services, a trading name of Capita IRG Trustees Limited. To request a copy of these documents please call the Whitbread PLC shareholder helpline on 0844 855 2327* or if calling from overseas +44 (0)29 8639 3400.
*calls to this number cost 5p per minute plus any network extras, lines are open from 09.00 - 17.30 Monday to Friday.
Please make sure that you read all documents in full before making your decision.
