Shareholder Information

I have lost my share certificate. What now?

Our Registrars keep a record of your name, address and the number of shares you own and can arrange to issue a duplicate certificate if necessary. If you have lost a certificate please report this to the Registrars, Link Group, immediately on + 44 (0)371 664 0300 so they can put a ‘stop’ on that certificate. Before a replacement certificate can be issued, you will be sent an indemnity form to complete should a dispute arise over ownership at a later stage.

You can find out more information, including the costs of supplying a replacement certificate direct from our Registrars.

Does Keywords pay a dividend on its Ordinary shares?

The Directors intend to maintain a progressive dividend policy. However, there can be no assurance that the Company will declare dividends or as to the level of any dividends. The approval of the declaration and amount of any dividends of the Company is subject to the discretion of the Directors of the Company (and, in the case of any final dividend, the discretion of the Shareholders) at the relevant time and will depend upon, among other things, the Group’s earnings, financial position, cash requirements and availability of distributable profits, as well as the provisions of relevant laws and/or generally accepted accounting principles from time to time.

The Company has a progressive dividend policy, subject to the retention of funds needed to fund future growth of the Group’s business and its strategic aims. Dividends are generally paid in Sterling.

Since May 2023 the Company has offered a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP), to eligible shareholders. For Further information on registration for the DRIP, please contact the registrar.
