Reuniting shareholders with their shares and dividends

We are running a tracing programme in partnership with our registrar, Equiniti, with the aim of reuniting shareholders with their shares and dividends. There are various reasons why shareholders may be owed dividends or need to be reunited with their shares in Smiths.

The most common reasons are:

  • Shareholders not notifying Equiniti of a change of address. This means that cheques in respect of dividends or payments issued in relation to corporate actions may have been returned to Equiniti undelivered and/or remain uncashed.
  • Where a shareholder has deceased, the beneficiaries or executors of an estate may not be aware of the holding.

Shareholders with unclaimed shares and/or dividends will receive a letter in the post from Equiniti, our registrar. They can also contact Equiniti directly for further assistance by calling them on +44 (0)371 384 2719 (please use the country code when calling from outside the UK). The lines are open Monday to Friday 8:30am to 17:30pm, excluding UK Bank Holidays.

Share fraud

Shareholders are advised to be very wary of any unsolicited advice, offers to buy shares at a discount or offers of free company annual reports. Advice for Shareholders on how to handle such fraud related to shares can be found here.

Share certificates

A share certificate in your name is evidence of your ownership of shares. Unless your shares are held in electronic format, you will need your share certificate when you wish to sell or transfer your shares. If you lose your share certificate or it has been stolen, you should contact the Company’s registrars immediately. You may need to pay an administrative fee or other charge to obtain a replacement certificate. Further information on replacing a lost or damaged share certificate can be found by visiting the Shareview Help Centre.
