Payment of dividends by BACS
Many shareholders have already arranged for dividends to be paid by mandate directly to their bank or building society account. The mandates enable the Company to pay dividends through the BACS (Bankers’ Automated Clearing Services) system. The benefit to shareholders of the BACS system is that the registrar posts the tax vouchers directly to them, whilst the dividend is credited on the payment date to the shareholder bank or building society account. Shareholders who wish to benefit from this service should request the Company’s registrars (address above) to send them a dividend/interest mandate form or alternatively complete the mandate form attached to the next dividend tax voucher they receive.
Dividend Re-Investment Plan
The Company operates a Dividend Re-Investment Plan which allows a shareholder’s cash dividend to be used to buy Stagecoach shares at favourable commission rates. Shareholders who would like further information should telephone the Company’s registrars, Capita Registrars, on +44 (0)871 664 0443 (calls cost 10p per minute plus network extras) if calling from the UK or +44 (0)800 280 2583 if calling from outside the UK.
