Managing your Shares
Shareholders now have the opportunity to receive shareholder communications electronically, e.g. Annual Reports, Notice of the Annual General Meeting and Proxy Forms. You can elect to receive email notifications of shareholder communications by registering at www.shareview.co.uk, where you can also set up a bank mandate to receive dividends directly to your bank account and to submit proxy votes for shareholder meetings. Receiving the Company’s communications electronically allows the Company to communicate with its shareholders in a more environmentally friendly, cost effective and timely manner.
Dechra’s Registrar is Equiniti Limited. Equiniti should be contacted for any matters relating to your shareholding, including:
• Notification of change in name and address
• Enquiries about dividend payments
• Submission of proxy form for voting at the Annual General
Shareholders who receive duplicate sets of Company mailings because they have multiple accounts should contact Equiniti to have their accounts amalgamated.
Equiniti offers a facility whereby shareholders are able to access their shareholdings in Dechra via their website (www.shareview.co.uk). Alternatively, Equiniti can be contacted at: Equiniti Limited, Aspect House, Spencer Road, Lancing, West Sussex BN99 6DA.
