Electronic shareholder communications

FirstGroup uses this website as its primary means of communication with shareholders provided that the shareholder has agreed or is deemed to have agreed that communications may be sent or supplied in that manner.  Electronic communications allow shareholders to access information instantly as well as helping FirstGroup reduce its costs and its impact on the environment.  Shareholders that have consented or are deemed to have consented to electronic communications can revoke their consent at any time by contacting the Company’s Registrar, Equiniti.

Shareholders can sign up for electronic communications online by registering with Shareview, the internet based platform provided by Equiniti.  In addition to enabling shareholders to register to receive communications by email, Shareview provides a facility for shareholders to manage their shareholding online by allowing them to:

  • Receive trading updates by email;
  • View their shareholdings;
  • Update their records, including change of address;
  • view payment and tax information; and
  • vote in advance of company general meetings.

To find out more information about the services offered by Shareview, please visit

ShareGift

If shareholders have a small number of shares and the dealing costs or the minimum fee make it uneconomical to sell them, it is possible to donate these to ShareGift, a registered charity, who provide a free service to enable shareholders to dispose charitably of such shares.  More information on this service can be found on

www.sharegift.org

or by calling +44 (0)20 7930 3737.

Duplicate shareholder accounts

If you receive more than one copy of Company mailings this may indicate that more than one account is held in your name on the register. This happens when the registration details of separate transactions differ slightly. If you believe more than one account exists in your name you may contact the company's registrar to request that the accounts are combined. There is no charge for this service.

Half-yearly results

Our half-yearly results are normally announced on the London Stock Exchange in November and are made available on this website in the form of a press release. Shareholders that have signed up for electronic shareholder communication will be sent a notification when these are available on this website. If you wish to receive a hard copy, please contact the Company Secretary on companysecretariat@firstgroup.com.
