Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRIP)
The Company offers a Dividend Reinvestment Plan which gives shareholders the opportunity to use their dividend to purchase further Man Group plc shares. Shareholders receive as many whole shares as can be bought with their dividend, taking into account any costs of the DRIP. Any residual monies left, after purchasing the shares out of your dividend payment, will be added to your next dividend payment.
The DRIP terms and conditions and the DRIP mandate form, can be found below. Should you have any questions on the scheme, please contact Equiniti, on 0871 384 2268* or +44 (0)121 415 7592 from overseas.

2007 Return of cash
On 24 July 2007 Man disposed of a majority interest in MF Global, by way of an initial public offering and listing on the New York Stock
Exchange, for net proceeds of US$2.75 billion. Following this disposal, shareholders approved a return of cash, on 23 November 2007, amounting
to a sterling equivalent of US$1.40 per existing ordinary share.
On 26th November 2007, Man's ordinary shares of 3 US cents each ("Old Ordinary Shares") were consolidated into New Ordinary Shares of 3.4285
(3 and 3/7ths) US cents each ("New Ordinary Shares") in the ratio of seven New Ordinary Shares for every eight Old Ordinary Shares held. On
the same date Shareholders were issued with one B Share or C Share for each Old Ordinary Share that they held at the Record Time.
In accordance with the terms of the Return of Cash, the Dividend Alternative and the Immediate Capital Alternative were effected in
December 2007 and the Deferred Capital Alternative was effected in July 2008.
The Return of Cash may affect the tax position of shareholders. A general guide to the tax position of shareholders who are subject to tax
in the UK can be found in the attached document ‘Tax information’. Further information on the Return of Cash can be found in the ‘Return of
Cash Circular’. Shareholders who are in any doubt about their tax position, or who are subject to tax in a jurisdiction other than the United Kingdom, should consult an appropriate adviser.
