Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP)
You can elect to receive future dividends as shares rather than cash under Pearson's Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP). The DRIP allows shareholders to reinvest their cash dividends in shares bought on the London Stock Exchange. On each dividend payment date, the company buys shares in the market on your behalf using your cash dividend, having first deducted a percentage to cover stamp duty and administration fees. A share certificate will be sent to you within 10 working days after the dividend payment date.
You can participate by completing a DRIP mandate form (attached below) or by contacting the Registrar (contact details below). The forms are also available on the Shareview website. A booklet explaining how the plan operates and the charges applicable is attached below. To be eligible for the next dividend, the Registrar must have received your completed form at least 15 days before the dividend payment date.
