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 The Man share certificates printed on blue paper with Company Number: 2921462 are no longer valid and should be destroyed.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.

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?

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.
