Elections for Second Interim Dividend in respect of the Year Ended 31 March 2021
4 June 2021 - Experian plc, the global information services company, hereby notifies the market that, following the announcement on 19 May 2021 of a second interim dividend of 32.5 US cents per ordinary share, payable on 23 July 2021 to shareholders on the register of members at the close of business on 25 June 2021, shareholders are reminded that the final date for submission of:
(a) elections to receive UK sourced dividends via the Income Access Share arrangements, and
(b) elections to receive dividends in US dollars
is 25 June 2021.
In the absence of any such elections, previous elections or deemed elections will remain in force.
Shareholders who do not elect (or have not been deemed to elect) to receive UK sourced dividends through the Income Access Share arrangements are reminded that their dividends will be Irish sourced and subject to Irish dividend withholding tax unless the Company's share registrars are in possession of a valid exemption form by 25 June 2021. Exemption forms should be delivered to the registrars' Dividend Planning Team so as to arrive no later than 5.30pm on 25 June 2021.
In addition, unless shareholders elect by 25 June 2021 to receive US dollars, their dividends will be paid in sterling at a rate per share calculated on the basis of the exchange rate from US dollars to sterling pounds on 2 July 2021. If you hold your shares in uncertificated form, that is via CREST, and wish to make an election to receive US dollars, your instruction should be made via the established procedure for dividend elections in CREST. Certificated holders who wish to make an election to receive US dollars should complete and lodge the election form which is available from the shareholder portal at www.experianplc.com/shares or by contacting the share registrars directly. All valid elections must be received by 25 June 2021.
Enquiries may be addressed to the share registrars' Dividend Planning Team on 0371 664 9245. Calls are charged at the standard geographic rate and will vary by provider. Calls made outside the United Kingdom will be charged at the applicable international rate. Lines are open from 8.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday excluding public holidays in England and Wales. The address for the return of election forms is Link Market Services (Jersey) Limited, PO Box 532, St Helier, Jersey, JE4 5UW, Channel Islands.
