Update on goodwill payment scheme - 1 June 2018
On 30 April 2018 we made an announcement regarding a discretionary goodwill payment to shareholders who sold our preference shares* in the period from 8 to 22 March 2018 (inclusive).
KPMG LLP, as administrator of the scheme, has started contacting certain brokers and intermediaries who executed transactions on behalf of eligible shareholders during this period to facilitate the collection of information allowing these brokers and intermediaries to submit claims on behalf of those eligible shareholders when the scheme opens.
If you are an eligible shareholder who sold preference shares via a broker or other intermediary, they may be in touch regarding this process and to collate certain information required to make a claim, ahead of the scheme opening.
We have updated the questions and answers below to reflect this process and to provide additional information on the terms and conditions of the scheme. Read the full terms and conditions of the scheme.
We expect to have finalised the preparations required to open the scheme by 31 July 2018 and will issue a further announcement at that time.
When the scheme opens, we will also make further updates to the information available on this website and KPMG LLP will write to all registered holders of preference shares who have been identified as entering into a sale of preference shares in the period from 8 to 22 March 2018 (inclusive).
