Reminder to Shareholders
Change of Dividend Payment Method
At the 2018 Annual General Meeting of Greencore Group plc (the ‘Company’ and ‘Greencore’), the shareholders passed a resolution to make certain amendments to the Articles of Association of the Company so that all future dividends will no longer be paid by cheque and that all dividends will be paid by direct credit into individual shareholder bank accounts. This change is effective from FY20 i.e. all dividend payments from and including 28 February 2020 will be made by direct credit transfer only.
The rationale for the change is to ensure shareholders receive the payments in a prompt and efficient manner.
Since the resolution was passed by shareholders in January 2018, shareholders have received repeated notifications in respect of the change, associated deadlines and have been requested to provide their bank account details.
On Friday 10 January 2020, the Company will issue a final copy of the direct mandate form to those shareholders who have not yet provided details of their nominated bank account.
Greencore recently declared a final dividend for FY19 of 3.75 per share. Subject to shareholder approval on 28 January 2020, the dividend will be paid on Friday, 28 February 2020 to shareholders on the Register of Members at 3 January 2020. As the Company will no longer issue cheques it is imperative that shareholders who have not yet provided details of their nominated bank account look out for the final reminder form which will issue by post and complete the direct credit mandate form without delay.
