Dividends

As a GBG shareholder you can elect to have your dividends paid directly into a UK bank or building society account. A dividend mandate form can be accessed here. Once completed please send to: Share Dividend Team, Equiniti, Aspect House, Spencer Road, Lancing, West Sussex, BN99 6DA. GBG encourages all shareholders to use this facility to prevent lost or unclaimed dividends (when sent out by cheque).

Dividend Reinvestment Plan (“DRIP”)

GBG operates a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (“DRIP”) which enables its shareholders to buy the GBG’s shares on the London Stock Market by reinvesting their cash dividend. Further information about the DRIP is available from Equiniti.

What is a DRIP?

  • A plan which allows shareholders to use their cash dividends to buy more shares in their company.
  • You can elect to use your cash dividend to purchase additional shares.
  • Whole shares are purchased and any residue money is carried forward and added to the next dividend.
  • If the amount of the dividend less any dealing costs is insufficient to purchase one share no charge is made and the dividend is carried forward.
  • Following declaration of the dividend and exercise of the DRIP you will be sent a share purchase advice, share certificate and tax voucher.
