If you have more than one account, and there are no reasons for them to be separate (for instance, you prefer to keep your own shares separate form those held on behalf of a trust), you should consolidate these accounts into one with a view to receiving only one dividend payment or circular and paying brokers' fees only once should you sell the shares.
You can request Computershare in writing to do this and supply full particulars of the different accounts and the account in which the consolidation must take place.
Sanlam Share Account does not allow any share transfers resulting in a shareholding of fewer than 300 shares.
Existing shareholders selling or transferring shares may not be left with fewer than 300 shares in Sanlam Share Account after such a transfer, and new shareholders in Sanlam Share Account may not buy or take transfer of fewer than 300 shares.
Shareholders currently holding fewer than 300 shares will be allowed to keep them, but if they want to sell or transfer shares, they will have to sell or transfer all of these shares.
All cheques, share certificates, statements and documents sent to you will be sent at your risk. Share certificates will be sent by registered mail. Shareholders are reminded to send share certificates, other documents and instructions by registered mail themselves.
You may have your dividends paid directly into your bank account irrespective of whether you hold your shares in Sanlam Share Account or by means of a share certificate. This is a better option than payments by cheque, since cheques take some time to reach you by the post and it could get lost or stolen.
Therefore, if you operate a bank account, please ensure that the particulars are in Computershare's possession.
If for some reason your dividends have not been paid to you (because, for example, the dividend cheque got lost) or the cheque was not cashed in time, you can contact Computershare in this regard.
See section 2 for the additional information and/or documents you will have to provide.
If you wish to change any of your personal particulars in the share register at Computershare, such a request should be addressed to Computershare in writing per registered mail and must be accompanied by the additional information and/or documentation as set out in section 2.
