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 advisor.

For telephone dealing please call 03456 037 037 between 8.00am and 4.30pm Monday to Friday.

How will I receive shareholder documents?

Legislation has been introduced which enable companies to communicate with their shareholders by electronic means. Electronic communications (e-communications) enable the Company to communicate with our shareholders in a more timely, environmentally friendly and cost effective manner, which is in the interest of all shareholders. For these reasons the Company has decided to provide all relevant shareholder documents, including the mailing of the Annual Report and Notice of AGM, via the Company’s website, except where shareholders have requested a paper copy of the documents.

If you have signed up to receive e-communications via Equiniti’s Shareview website, you will receive an e-mail notification confirming that the documents are available on the Company’s website. If you would like to register on the Shareview site please have your shareholder reference number available, this can be found on your share certificate and dividend tax vouchers. If you have not registered for this service, we will send you a letter informing you that the documents are available from the website. You can continue to receive hard copies of Man’s communications by contacting Equiniti using the details above.

Why do I no longer receive a copy of the Interim Report?

As part of our electronic communications (e-communications) programme we have decided not to produce a printed copy of our Interim report. Instead the Interim Report will be published on our website and will be available from early November each year. If at that time you would like us to send a hard copy of our Interim Report, please e-mail us or telephone 020 7144 1000.

How can I contact the Company?

Different contacts within the organisation can be found on the contact page.

What should I do with my share certificate?

Share certificates are evidence of your ownership and should be kept in a safe place. You will need them if you want to sell all or some of your shares in the future. Share certificates are posted to shareholders at their own risk.

What is Capital Gains Tax?

Capital Gains Tax is a tax on the profit or gain you make when you sell or ‘dispose of’ an asset (e.g. shares). Please note that Man is unable to offer advice on capital gains tax and should you have any questions, or are unsure of your position, you should contact a duly authorised independent financial advisor.

Why have I received another share certificate?

Shareholders have been sent new share certificates following the completion of an internal restructure to insert a new holding company of the Group. Under the scheme of arrangement your existing shares (represented by a blue share certificate) were exchanged for shares in the new holding Company (represented by a white share certificate). The Man share certificates printed on blue paper with Company Number: 2921462 are no longer valid and should be destroyed. The share certificates printed on white paper with Company Number: 8172396 now represent your holding in Man and should be retained.

What is my shareholder reference number?

Your shareholder reference number is a unique 11-digit account number, which should be quoted when corresponding with Equiniti. The number is detailed at the top of your share certificate and on dividend tax vouchers.

Why do I receive multiple sets of documentation whenever you send anything to me?

If you have acquired shares in Man on more than one occasion, but the name and address you supplied to the Registrar differed, even slightly, from the existing details held, another account may have been created. If this happens and you want the accounts combined you should contact Equiniti.

How do I register my change of address?

If you have registered with Equiniti’s Shareview website, you can update your address details on-line. Alternatively you can complete the change of address form and return to Equiniti at the address shown on the form.

How do I register my change of name?

In order to register your change of name you will need to send Equiniti original documents confirming this change (eg your marriage certificate or change of name deed). Once the change has been processed, the original documents will be returned to you.

How do I transfer my shares to someone else?

If you hold a paper share certificate you can transfer your shares by completing a stock transfer form and returning it to the Registrar.

What do I do if I lose my share certificate?

If your certificate is lost, stolen or destroyed, you should contact the Company’s Registrar, Equiniti, as soon as you can. Equiniti will need to arrange for you to complete an indemnity covering the Company for any loss and you will be charged for this. Once this process is completed, Equiniti will send you a duplicate certificate.

How do I register the death of a shareholder?

Initially you should call Equiniti and notify them of the shareholders death. They will then add a notification of death restriction to the account. This will prevent future dividends being paid to the deceased shareholder.

If the shares were held solely in the name of the deceased, you should send Equiniti an official copy of the document by which the deceased’s legal personal representative was appointed, usually the grant of probate or letters of administration, impressed with the court seal. The name of the legal personal representative will be put on the register. The shares can then be sold by the personal representative, or transferred to the deceased’s beneficiary.

If the value of the deceased’s estate is below certain limits, the death can be registered using the small estates procedure. Details of the current limits and the procedure involved can be obtained from Equiniti.

If the shares were held jointly by the deceased and another person, a copy of the death certificate must be sent to Equiniti. The shares will then be registered in the name(s) of the surviving holder(s), and the relevant share certificates will be amended to reflect this.

How can I confirm the number of shares I hold?

If you have registered with Equiniti’s Shareview website, you can see this information on-line. Alternatively, you can contact Equiniti on 0371 384 2112, who will be able to confirm your shareholding.

How can I calculate the value of my shares?

Using the share price information provided above in the Share Price section you can calculate the value of your share holding, at both the purchase date and at present.

I hold certificates which quote Man Group plc Ordinary shares of 18 US cents each or Man Group plc Ordinary shares of 3 US cents each. Are these still valid?

No. Only share certificates relating to Man Group plc Ordinary shares of 3 3/7 US cents, issued on or after the latest consolidation on 26 November 2007 are valid.

What is an AGM?

AGM stands for Annual General Meeting, which the Company is required to hold every year and which every shareholder is invited to attend.

What if I cannot attend the AGM?

If you cannot attend the AGM in person, you are still able to vote on the proposed resolutions and to ask questions on the business of the meeting. Prior to the meeting, if the shares are held in your own name, you will be sent details of how you can vote on the resolutions. Between the distribution of the Notice of the Meeting and the AGM, you can submit questions to the Board of directors by e-mail. Further information can be found can be found in the Shareholder Meetings section of the Company’s website.

What is a dividend?

How frequently are dividends paid?

Man generally pays dividends twice per year, following the announcement of the final and interim results. Any final or interim dividends are usually paid in July and December respectively.

Why do you declare your dividends in US dollars but pay them in sterling?

Man Group plc is a UK registered company, listed on the London Stock Exchange, however Man's functional currency is US dollars and therefore dividends are declared in US dollars, with an equivalent amount in Sterling payable to shareholders.

How do you set the exchange rate for dividend payments? 

The dividend exchange rate is set on the day prior to the announcement of the dividend.

Can I choose which currency I receive my dividends in?

Man only pays its dividends in Sterling. Shareholders based outside the UK, can ask Equiniti to arrange payments directly into their bank account, although there is a charge for this service. For further information please visit Equiniti’s website.

How are dividends paid?

Dividends are generally paid in cash and can be paid either by cheque, or directly into your bank or building society account. You can also choose to use your dividend to purchase further shares in the Company, by joining the Dividend Reinvestment Plan.

What is a DRIP?

DRIP stands for 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.

How do I obtain the Company’s dividend history?

A full history of the dividends paid to shareholders can be found here.

What was the price of my DRIP shares?

You can find the price of your DRIP shares by looking at the Company’s dividend history.

What should I do if I have lost my dividend cheque?

To avoid any further loss, you may wish to consider arranging for the dividend to be paid directly into your bank account, which can be done by completing the dividend mandate form and returning it to Equiniti.

What should I do if I have lost my tax voucher?

If you lose a tax voucher you should contact Equiniti, confirming which tax voucher has been lost. A duplicate will be issued upon payment of an administration charge.

What are E-communications?

E-communications stands for electronic communications which enable us to communicate with you via e-mail and our website, rather than sending you printed documents. The service is run by Equiniti, through the Shareview website. You will need to have your shareholder reference number, which can be found on your share certificate or tax vouchers. The Shareview website enables you to:

  • Receive important shareholder communications by e-mail
  • Access details of your shareholding in Man
  • Change your details on-line, including postal address, e-mail address, mailing preference and dividend mandate

Why should I sign up for E-communications?

E-communications enables the Company to communicate with you in a more timely, secure and convenient manner; it also enables the Company to communicate in a more environmentally friendly and cost-effective way, which is in the interests of all shareholders.

Be aware!

Many companies have become aware that their shareholders have received unsolicited phone calls or correspondence concerning investment matters. These are typically from overseas ‘brokers’ who target shareholders offering to sell them what often turn out to be worthless or high risk shares, generally in US or UK investments.

These callers can be very persistent and extremely persuasive and their activities have resulted in considerable losses for some investors. It is not just the novice investor that has been deceived in this way; many of the victims have been successfully investing for several years. Shareholders are advised to be very wary of any unsolicited advice, offers to buy shares at a discount or offers of free company reports.

If you receive any unsolicited offers of investment advice:

  • Make sure you get the correct name of the person and organisation
  • Check that they are properly authorised (for example, in the UK by the Financial Conducts Authority) before getting involved
  • The Financial Conducts Authority also maintains on its website a list of unauthorised overseas firms who are targeting, or have targeted, UK investors and any approach from such organisations should be reported to the Financial Conducts Authority so that this list can be kept up to date and any other appropriate action can be considered. The Financial Conducts Authority can be contacted by completing an online form
  • If unsolicited calls persist, hang up

If you deal with an unauthorised firm, you would not be eligible to receive payment under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme.

More detailed information on this or similar activity can be found
here.

Details of any share dealing facilities that the Company endorses will be included in company mailings.

Unsolicited mail

You may also receive unsolicited mail from a variety of commercial organisations who have obtained your address from our publicly available share register. If you wish to stop such mailings please contact:
