Unsolicited mail

Unsolicited mail

The Company is obliged, by law, to make its share register publicly available should a request be received. As a consequence, some shareholders may receive unsolicited mail.

If you wish to limit the amount of unsolicited mail you receive, please contact: The Mailing Preference Service (MPS), DMA House, 70 Margaret Street, London W1W 8SS.

Alternatively register online at www.mpsonline.org.uk or call the MPS Registration line on 0845 703 4599.

The Mailing Preference Service is an independent organisation which offers a free service to the public within the UK. Registering with them will help stop most unsolicited consumer advertising material. The use of a nominee company can also help protect you privacy. You can transfer your shares into our corporate nominee by contacting Equiniti. Alternatively, contact your broker for information on their nominee services.

Share fraud and scams

Share fraud and scams

Shareholders should be wary of any unsolicited advice, offers to buy shares at a discount, or offers of free reports about the Company. These are typically from overseas 'brokers' who target UK or US shareholders, offering to sell them what often turns out to be worthless or high-risk shares. These operations are commonly known as boiler rooms, and the brokers can be very persistent and extremely persuasive.

Shareholders are advised to deal with financial service firms that are authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). You can check if a firm is authorised by FCA by visiting NewRegister (fca.org.uk). If you deal with an unauthorised firm, you will not be eligible to receive payment under the Financial Services Compensations Scheme if anything goes wrong. For more detailed information on how you can protect yourself from an investment scam, or to report a scam, go to Report a scam to us | FCA or call 0800 111 6768.
