Link Group manage the SThree share register. Click here to see their contact details on their website.
You can contact our registrar Link Group on 0371 664 0300 or at [email protected]. Calls are charged at the standard geographic rate and will vary by provider. Calls outside the United Kingdom will be charged at the applicable international rate. Link Group are open between 09:00 – 17:30, Monday to Friday excluding public holidays in England and Wales.
If you have moved you need to inform our registrars, Link Group. You can do this by contacting them by using the details in question one or by downloading the forms from their website.
It is important to remember that if you own shares in more than one company you will need to inform each registrar involved. Even if the registrar is the same, you will need to tell the registrar of each of the companies that you hold shares in to ensure that all of your records are changed.
You will need to contact the registrar. If the shares were held in joint names they will automatically be transferred into the name of the surviving shareholder. Where the shares were held under one name, these may be transferred to another name. The registrars will inform you of any documentation that may be required.
If you lose your share certificate, or it has been stolen, you should inform Link Group immediately (Tel: 0371 664 0300). A record of the lost share certificate will be made to prevent it from being used and a letter of indemnity will be sent to you to sign.
This is to protect SThree from the possible misuse of your certificate while it is not in your possession. A replacement share certificate will then be sent to you. There is a charge for this service, so we advise you to keep your share certificate in a safe and secure place.
You may decide to transfer some or all of your shares to someone else (your partner, for example, or another member of your family). To do this, you will need to complete a share transfer form. The form should be fully completed and returned with your share certificate(s) (representing at least the number of shares being transferred). Link Group will then process the transfer and issue a balance share certificate to you if applicable.
You can buy or sell shares using a high street bank or stockbroker.
Alternatively, if you meet the eligibility criteria, you can trade through Link Market Services Trustees Limited Dealing service. Please see the 'Share Dealing using the Link Market Services Trustees Limited Dealing Service' section for further information.
You can also use the details shown on the Shareholder Information page of SThree’s Annual or Interim reports.
You can confirm the number of shares you hold by registering for the shareholder portal at www.sthreeshares.com. This gives you direct access to information on your shares in SThree and other companies for which Link Group act as registrar. Alternatively, you can contact Link Group directly.
Dividends are normally paid twice yearly, in mid-June and mid-December.
However it should be noted that SThree plc are under no obligation to pay a dividend. SThree plc will only do so if there are sufficient distributable reserves and the directors deem it to be in the best interests of the company.
In the recent past, many companies have become aware that their shareholders have received unsolicited phone calls or correspondence concerning investment matters. These are typically from overseas brokers who target UK shareholders offering to sell them what often turn out to be worthless or high-risk shares in US or UK investments.
They can be very persistent and extremely persuasive and a 2006 survey by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has reported that the average amount lost by investors is around £20,000. It is not just the novice investor that has been duped in this way; many of the victims had been successfully investing for several years.
Shareholders are advised to be very wary of any unsolicited advice, offers to buy shares at a discount or offers of free company reports.
If you receive any unsolicited investment advice:
- Make sure you get the correct name of the person and organisation.
- Check that they are properly authorised by the FCA before getting involved. The FCA has a list of unauthorised overseas firms that are targeting, or have targeted, UK investors. If you deal with an unauthorised firm, you would not be eligible to receive payment under the Financial Conduct Compensation Scheme.
- Inform the FCA of any approach from such organisations so they can keep records up to date and follow up with appropriate action if need be.
- Inform our Registrar's Compliance Department on +44 20 8639 2041 or email [email protected]
More detailed information on this or similar activity can also be found at www.fca.org.uk.
You can modify your preferences for paper or electronic documents in your shareholding portal, or by contacting Link Group directly (details can be found in the first question).
