Dividend reinvestment plan
In December 2016, Healthscope Ltd announced that it had introduced a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRP) which provides shareholders with the opportunity to reinvest all or part of their dividends in additional Healthscope shares, free of brokerage, commission or other transaction costs.
Key features of the DRP
- The DRP is a convenient way for shareholders to increase their holding of Healthscope shares.
- Participation in the DRP is optional and available to shareholders with registered addresses in Australia or New Zealand.
- Shareholders may participate for all or part of their shareholding and, subject to any limits imposed at the time a dividend is announced, there is no minimum or maximum limit on the number of their shares that may participate.
- Shares acquired by shareholders under the DRP are free of brokerage, commission or other transaction costs.
- Shareholders may join, vary their participation in, or withdraw from, the DRP at any time, subject to adequate notice being given.
- DRP participation does not affect a shareholders eligibility for franking credits.
- Shares allocated under the DRP rank equally with existing shares.
- Once a shareholder elects to participate, the DRP will continue to apply for future dividend payments, unless a shareholder advises otherwise or unless the DRP is suspended or terminated by the Board in its absolute discretion.
Answers to some frequently asked questions are also provided in the Shareholder Information Booklet. Full details of the DRP terms and conditions can be found in the DRP Plan Rules.
In order to participate in the DRP for any financial year 2017 dividend, shareholders will need to ensure their DRP participation notice is received, or their online election is made, by no later than the first business day following any FY17 dividend record date.
Shareholders can make their election online by visiting www.computershare.com.au/easyupdate/hso.
Healthscope recommends shareholders seek financial advice and read the full terms and conditions set out in the DRP Rules before deciding whether to participate.
